Demystifying the PropertyCollector – VMworld Tech Exchange

 

Folks,

Just wanted to highlight a very important session for anyone that has ever wrestled with the Property Collector.

This session is ideal for any developer or administrator that needs to customize the Property Collector to do the following. 

·     Retrieve the names of all the hosts in the inventory.

·     Monitor for changes to the power state of all VMs in the inventory.

·     Keep track of the host that each VM is running on

This is an advanced session, and will be a great opportunity to learn the ins and outs of the Property Collector and the new changes for vSphere 4.1. This is also a great chance to meet the Balaji and the rest of the team.

Looking forward to seeing  you there, hurry and register today.

Labs:

LAB26 – VMware vSphere™ PowerCLI

This lab will provide hands on training for scripting a VMware environment. The goal is to provide all the tools needed to automate, integrate, and extend VMware vCenter™ for your environment. Attendees will use the Microsoft PowerShell based PowerCLI for scripting VMware vCenter™ and ESX. They’ll walk away from the lab with a better understanding of VMware Infrastructure, resources for using the toolkit, and a variety of scripts for performing common administrative tasks. Exercises will cover performing tasks based on VM attributes, performing actions on many VMs at a time, and exporting performance data. This lab does not require programming or scripting experience.

Lab Captain: Alton Yu

PowerCLI Booth

We will also have a booth dedicated to managing vSphere with PowerCLI and the vSphere APIs. Come and meet our Booth Representatives – (Sorry folks not what you think) The booth will be staffed with most of the engineering teams from the core SDK / API groups.

VMworld Tech Exchange – Why you need to attend the vSphere APIs for Performance Monitoring Session

Folks,

This is one of most popular sessions as Ravi and Balaji explain how to use Performance Metrics and more important how to pull the right data using the vSphere APIs. Ravi and Balaji go into real world scenarios, provide some best practices. 

Who should attend ?

This is a must attend session for anyone managing a large vSphere environment. Ravi and Balaji have tailored the talk to appeal to both Developers and Administrators.

Hope to see you there.

performance statistics. We will also discuss the best practices in
collecting performance data when using these APIs. This presentation is a
must-attend for any developer that retrieves performance information
from the vSphere platform in any large environment. While the content is
advanced, developers new to the platform will find it useful as well.

VMworld 2010 – Tech Exchange – 5 minute video guaranteed to make you grin, or wonder what we do with our time…

Folks,

Just thought we would share an internal video our film crew put together for us. Its meant to be light humor and you might find one or two words that you would not use in front of your parents or kids, so I do apologize in advance. You might ask why are we releasing this video ? We thought it might be fun, and it would help shed some light on who we are and what we do with our time 😉 I usually do not watch any corporate videos but this one is worth a few minutes of your time. 

Tell us what you think, not really sure this humor translates in different countries but worth a shot. Hope to see you there.

Regards,

Pablo

vCloud
APIs provide platform independent means to interfacing with vCloud.
vCloud SDK brings these REST based APIs into developer's own environment
be it based on Java. PHP or C#. These SDK allows developers to get
started quickly with vCloud APIs by providing easy to use client side
representations of vCloud resources in their familiar programming
languages. They help hide the details of REST, HTTP and the XML based
requests and responses. In This session we will introduce you to the
Java and PHP SDK and provide the details about how the SDK makes
programming to vCloud API easy using various samp
