A few years back I know I worked with a tool from VMWare that ran on my physical servers and we used the data to determine how many hosts I needed and how many vms to go on each host.  Does anyone know what that tool is called and where I can download it?

Thanks!

This is an hp branded tool but this should let you approximate your workload and get a general idea.
