VMware: Monitor snapshot deletion

Op de weblog van Eric Sloof (ntpro.nl) werd mijn aandacht getrokken door onderstaande post;

KB Article 1007566 gives us insight in the snapshot deletion progress. During the snapshot deletion process, it is difficult to observe the progress. While the snapshot deletion is taking place, the following occurs:

  • The hostd process does not respond
  • It is difficult to determine status of snapshot deletion

Resolution, establish a SSH session to the ESX host and use following command to verify the snapshot process is still running:
 
#watch “ls -lhut time-style=full-iso *.vmdk”

De problemen die hier worden omschreven heb ik al meerdere malen ondervonden. Ik zal aankomend weekend in de testomgeving eens kijken hoe dit werkt.
