Using vmstat on a vmware machine
I apologise in advance if this is the wrong section to post in.
I have two SuSE Linux vmware machines running. I am currently running a little script that collects vmstat output and puts it to a log file in order to do some diagnostics.
However, I am wanting to find out if vmstat will show me the system resources for the virtual machine or the physical machine on which the virtual machine is installed.
If the vmstat output is showing me the system resources for the virtual machine, is there a way I can collect the system usage data of the physical machine from running within the virtual machine?
