New Tool: Valgrind, ESXi Version

As part of our ongoing commitment to developers and open source software, VMware has released an ESXi porting of Valgrind 3.7.0, a GPL (GNU General Public License) licensed  instrumentation framework for building dynamic analysis tools. Valgrind Tools, ESXi Version works with ESXi 5.5 and later versions. This suite comprises a number of tools for memory debugging, memory leak detection, and cache and heap profiling.

Download Valgrind for ESXi today and stay tuned for an in-depth article on dynamic memory analysis from the Valgrind team.

Official VMware vSphere PowerCLI Training: vSphere Automation

Folks,

Just wanted to highlight our latest vSphere PowerCLI Training course. This is a new and exciting course targeted at folks interested in automating routine tasks when managing large vSphere environments. And as everyone knows if you can automate a task you can save precious time which will allow you to focus on more strategic projects (or just get home early for once)

A big thanks to the folks in the VMware Training Organization for helping put this together and of course to Carter for contributing to the content. On that note I should also mention that we have found a new PM for PowerCLI ..(You heard it here first) His name will be revealed very soon so please stand by.

Enjoy our newly released vSphere 4.1 SDKs and CLIs

Best Regards,

vSphere SDK / CLI Product Marketing

Are you using the vSphere / VI Java API ? Please take our short survey

Folks,

We are running a survey to better understand the needs of the greater community using the vSphere / VI Java API. I am referring to http://vijava.sourceforge.net

The survey takes less than 5 minutes and it would help us understand what you need from VMware.  Does your organization require formal support, indemnification, training or does the current model work for you ?

This survey will be confidential; we will not disclose your name or who you work for. We just want to understand how you are using the vSphere / VI Java API and what you need from VMware.

Link to survey: http://www.surveymethods.com/EndUser.aspx?C4E08C96C4859496C2

Thanks for your time and hope to see you at our Developer Days @ VMworld 2010
