Hello EE,

I am mostly up in my VMWare 5 environment now and started reading about CPU Ready and just getting a feel for the performance monitors.  Can anyone recommend a tool or way to maybe get weekly reports on how the VMs are running rather than having to go into each of 50 VMs and look at the performance tab for each?
