When I configure fault tolerance for a virtual machine, does that double the required overhead since there is a second machine running?  Will I see two duplicate machines in vcenter?

Yes it doubles the overhead.  It is a whole VM running on another ESX host with the same memory and processor overhead.

You don't see the FT clone in vCenter.  FT handles that for you.  You just manage the main VM and vCenter handles the FT clone.  It will even create a new FT clone if something happens to the original.

I will note that it does not double the disk storage overhead - the same vmdk files are used by the FT machine as the original.

Good Luck
