I would really like to test VM monitoring, so if the VM locks up, vmware will restart it. I set the high sensitivity for VM monitoring for one particular virtual machine. I tried to:
1) Turn off vmware tools with /etc/init.d/...
2) Kill the vmware tools process
3) Run a fork bomb
The restart of the VM was not initiated at all. In the summary tab I have Vmware tools not running, but no action is made. Why? (it's vmware esxi with vcenter)
