Hi,

I need to get No of processor available in the Host OS. Im using VIX API to automate my virtual machines. I can easily get the properties of Guest OS using VIX API, but dont know how to get the properties of host os. Can any one tell me how to do that, is there any function call for this?

Its urgent. Thanx in advance

Hi ilava,

sorry, I have no experience with this API, but searching the web I found a link where some java code is shown which may be helpful: http://communities.vmware.com/message/840068;jsessionid=036FCCF54E7B1547AE131DAD77B81E47

Maybe you can use this to find out how it is done in C++

Hope that helps,

ZOPPO

Do you need to get the amt in coding? You can easily see processors while logged into the vSphere Client to vCenter or the host directly, click on the host in question, then the Summary tab.

VIX API is for virtual machine automation and will not collect statistics on the actual ESX or ESXi host. You can use the powershell Get-VMHost to get those kinds of details. See http://communities.vmware.com/thread/261745 for some examples.

Good Luck
