Installed it last week thursday and it allready picked up on three issues
Overcommitted
Under committed
And to move vm from one host to another

By doing this we have not seen a lot of performance increase but the application works grate being able to move the vm server, change memory and cpu settings for you is great.

The supplier that recommended it, asked us to run it for about a month (full trail period).

Question for you.
After registering on vmTurbo website for evaluation are yoe also getting bombarded with emails at least two a day and I have received 3 caals from them already?

We ave tested and use VMTurbo, for some clients, some clients like it....

We actually prefer, VMware vCenter Operations Manager or now it's new name vRealize Operations

https://www.vmware.com/products/vrealize-operations.

But we have been evaluating - https://www.opvizor.com/. and this is fantastic!!!!

Highly Recommend, you give it a try!
Thank guys, I was already in contact with the sales team for pricing, so my emails have been minimal from them.  But I have had the same experience so far, under and over commits, but in our environment hit has probably done a dozen plus vmotions to balance things out this week.  Seems to have helped on their UI value but from an end user standpoint I cant say I seen a gain yet, but when things work nobody comments.

Andrew, seemed like VMTurbo did more analytics than VCOPS, plus is VCOPS dependent on Enterprise addition?  We run standard and the cost is a big jump unfortunately.  VMTurbo is reasonable, and I will check out opvizor too.
