comment How can I reliably determine the hardware version of a VMWare Guest from inside the guest?
Nice, thanks! The powercli option is probably best, but I knew there had to be another way.

No problem - I'm working on something where we actually do have access to vsphere; but querying it for the hardware information would dramatically slow down the process - I would want to query the host itself to get the hardware info (and some other info as well). We already do this with VMWareToolboxCmd.exe to get ballooned memory.

comment How can I maximize the memory usage of a single Windows process?
We currently have 1TB of memory in the box, and even though we could add more, we are looking to see all of our options. I'm not 100% certain how Windows' memory manager handles things, but when some of the data that we have loaded into memory is paged out/in because of another process, it becomes painful if we need to use that chunk of memory again. Since the application we are using is used in many high performance computing systems, I'll see if there is an option to "lock pages in memory".

Thanks! Since the PID is getting reassigned to other processes, it looks like processes started by smss are the children of another process. I can just compare timestamps to see if the children are newer then the parent; if so, I can just ignore them.
