Hi,

We want to know the magnitude of the topology changes in the VMWare Infrastructure environemnts.
Explanation: We want to know the statistics on the number of changes in an hour in vmware environemnts that are based on clusters, resource pools, Esxs etc'. In "changes" we mean to the topology changes- the addition and removal of entities (ESX, VM,Resource Pool, Cluster etc') and motions of VMs.
We know that the environments vary between one customer to the other but we are talking on number of changes in average in standard-large environments.

thanks

Not quite sure what you mean by changes and the magnitude. Can you further explain what you are trying to find out? Once you setup your VM environment there won't be many changes at all.

Hi,
What I'm trying to find out is the amount/magnitude of changes in typical IT environment that is based on VMWare products. I am talking especially on number of vmotions in an hour (but also num of additions/removal of resource pools/esx servers etc')- which I guess is not very small since if DRS is fully enabled it will do it automatically.
The reason I want to know it is because I want to collect measurements/counters on the VMs/ESXs/Resource Pools etc' from the SDK and I know that there are changes in the env' every once and a while I want to be aware of.
