Virtual machine sprawl is a critical issue that most organizations usually face after virtualizing their environments. Users tend to create a lot of virtual machines for temporary purposes, use them for a small period of time and then leave on the server, consuming power, disk space, and other physical resources.
NetWrix Virtual Machine Sprawl Tracker is a FREE tool that automatically detects inactive and unused virtual machines to prevent virtual machine sprawl. The tool sends scheduled reports about inactive VMs based on their resource usage. Data center administrators can use such reports to justify decommissining of unused virtual machines and regain wasted physical resources.
