    QUESTION:

    How to tell if resources are reserved on a VMware system?


    ANSWER:

    Windows:
    VMware installs 'C:\Program Files\VMware\VMware Tools' which provides a utility that can tell you about resource reservation.

    Memory reservation:
    C:\Program Files\VMware\VMware Tools\vmwaretoolboxcmd.exe stat memres
    If you see 0 MB, then your memory isn't reserved.

    CPU reservation:
    C:\Program Files\VMware\VMware Tools\vmwaretoolboxcmd.exe stat cpures
    If you see 0 MHz, then your CPU isn't reserved.

    Linux:
    Memory reservation:

    /usr/bin/vmware-toolbox-cmd stat memres
    If you see 0 MB, then your memory isn't reserved.

    CPU reservation:

    /usr/bin/vmware-toolbox-cmd stat cpures
    If you see 0 MHz, then your CPU isn't reserved.
