3rd Party Tool Update: RVTools

RVTools is one of the best free tools on the market for finding and viewing information regarding your vSphere infrastructure and Rob de Veij has continued to improve upon this already useful tool. Rob recently released version 3.5, below is a short list of the changes. If you are not familiar with this tool you should check it out, it is very useful. There are many things I like to view with RVTools including the vHealth tab which can warn you of full hard drives or even zombie vmdk’s. Enjoy, send a thanks to Rob for his continued great work! You can download RVTools here:
