Do you guys still setup and use VMware resource pools? It seems like most have stopped using them.
I don't. I've only seen them used with VDI.
We only use them for threatening devs to keep their usage in check.
We don't (servers and vdi) but I think we should. People think hardware is free..
Thankfully I have enough control of the vmware clusters I manage that resource pools are not a thing.
Resource pools generally come into play when you over provision a system. Like you have 200 cores worth of vm's running on a host with only 100 threads. Then you can use resource pools to insure that your power users that actually NEED the power have a greater priority to resources than some schlub that just wants to run 5 youtube streams at once... or marketing.
