Here is what i am seeing in a linux vm.. and wondering why its paging.. out.. like that.  


Because with zenoss running it runs better in a vm than it does on a physical box.  


With it paging out like it does the performance sucks... and the graphs are gappy

I believe you only have to worry about that with drives that are not the OS drive.  I've been running ESX servers for more than a year and never had a problem with the OS "disks."  I do run the diskpart for drives added to the VM server; such as D: and so forth.
