Limitation on the maximum allowed VM's to be online together - ESXI
Posted on 2012-12-21
We have an ESXI server with 12 CPU and 64 GB of RAM with currently running on it 14 VM at the same time.
We have create a user to allow to all team to start the VM's whenever they want to work on it. Now we're facing an issue where more then 18 VM are started at the same time and the server become very slow (all resource are used) so i'm forced to connect and shutdown again some VM's
The thing is that we want to set a limitation on the user or other to allow only 10 VM's to be started/online together not more (maximum allowed VM's running together should be like 10). Once someone try to start the elevenths VM, he will not be able to do it unless he suspend or shutdown another VM.
Would this be possible to be applied?
The ESXI version used is 4.1 free license.
