In this course, you examine the issues associated with memory and CPU resource management. You'll learn how to create and use resource pools and vApps to control resource allocations through the use of reservations, shares, and limits. Next, you'll explore some of the tools that can be used to monitor resource usage in vCenter, how to use the advanced monitoring capabilities built into vCenter, and the use of esxtop via PuTTY. You'll then move on to learn about vCenter alarms, what they can be used for, and why they are so important for the health of your vSphere infrastructure. Finally, you'll learn how to create an alarm and how the concept of hierarchy applies to alarms. This course is one in a series that helps prepare learners for the VMware Certified Professional - Data Center Virtualization 2021 (VCP-DCV 2021) exam.
