Gerben Kloosterman just posted about the release of Snapshot My VM’s:

After the two products SearchMyVM and CompareMyVM Vkernel released another free tool called SnapshotMyVM. SnapshotMyVM is a tool to document your VM’s.

Here’s a sampling of the information you can get with SnapshotMyVM:

  • VM name
  • Guest operating system
  • Host hardware type, manufacturer, and version
  • VM resource (CPU, memory, storage, network) configuration
  • VM resource utilization statistics (saves a week of historical data)

This is how you get the app running:

  1. Download the SnapshotMyVM.jar file here: http://www.vkernel.com
  2. Install Java JRE 1.6.x
  3. Open a command prompt and enter the following command:

java –jar <path_to_download>\SnapshotMyVM.jar

The application will start:
