Do you guys still setup and use VMware resource pools? It seems like most have stopped using them.

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.
