Re: vmware systemvm 4.11.2 template


Hi Samuel,

What version of esxi are you running? Using the Debian 9 os type will make vmxnet3 the default nice type.  If you Google vmxnet3 and Debian 9 there have been known issues with some esxi versions.
One of the changes was to disable vgauth. You could try simply restarting it
Systemctl start vgauth

Paul,

Hmm.. I did a quick check. Added manual guestos "Debian 9 (64-bit)" and registered your template with this OS Type. VR gets correctly deployed as debian9_64Guest.

free -m at first login:

root@r-373-VM:~# free -m
              total        used        free      shared  buff/cache   available
Mem:            222         108          15          10          98          95
Swap:           241           0         241

One minute (!!) later while running "while true; do ssh -p3922 -i ..." on mgmt-server:

root@r-373-VM:~# free -m
              total        used        free      shared  buff/cache   available
Mem:            222         192           3           8          26          13

What was your fix about? It seems to make things worse. Can you do it the other way around? :-)

After setting OS-Type to "Other Linux (64-bit)" and restart network:
root@r-374-VM:~# free -m
              total        used        free      shared  buff/cache   available
Mem:            240          55          70          19         113         157
Swap:           241           0         241

After 5mins of ssh-loop:
root@r-374-VM:~# free -m
              total        used        free      shared  buff/cache   available
Mem:            240          59          51          26         128         145
Swap:           241           0         241

Really strange... what could be the impact of the OS Type setting for the guest-OS?

Regards,
Samuel

Guys,

I've been working on the memory usage in the vmware systemvm template.  I think that I've got a fix.  Could anyone who has had issues please test this alternative template.  If it seems to be good, I'll submit the pull request.
