Can someone clarify the meaning of Eager zero and Lazy zero in vmware ?
If I understand if you create a VM and select the disk as Thick and assign it 500GB, then even if you happen to write 100GB data on the VM vmdk file, it still counts as 500GB on the storage.
if the storage runs low in space, other VMs cannot use the 400GB left for your VM
if you select thin, and assign it 500GB , but you write 100GB to the vmdk , then it will count as 100GB on the storage.
if the storage space is running low, other VMs can use whatever you have left from 500GB , example the 400 GB
If I am not wrong Thin disk does not user eager zero and lazy zero
Any clarification ?
