I am trying to increase the performance of my NAS. Would enabling VMCI on a Nexenta VM alone benefit me?

I don't use Nexenta but does it run vmtools inside? if so then it's going to be more efficient left alone, if not then VMCI may help a tiny bit. –  Chopper3 Mar 16 '12 at 16:54
Nexenta allows you to run VMWare tools. The start script needs a quick modification, but it does work. –  ewwhite Mar 19 '12 at 21:27
Are you saying that if I have VMWare tools installed I don't need VMCI? Are you saying that VMWare tools enables high speed communications between the VM and the hypervisor? –  cmaduro Mar 20 '12 at 1:24
