Aloha,

We just upgraded from 5.5 to 6.7. We're pretty sure that now all our vm's are misconfigured due to the new pnuma/socket recommendations. Is anyone aware of tools that can look at our environment and offer cpu efficiency suggestions?

It is very easy to configure. You don't need optimization tool.


Please see this vmware blog post which will answer all your questions and help you easily identify if any VMs are misconfigured manually:

Especially useful is the "general rules of thumb" and table that the author of that post has provided.
