The answer is slightly different if you're using open-vm-tools instead. lsmod shows up the same modules. For the running process, you would do ps ax | grep vmtoolsd instead.

comment Cloud Providers that support FreeBSD?
You can also take a look at lowendbox.com for a list of cheap VPSes across the US and UK. I imagine some of the given answers here should also be listed on lowendbox.com, but probably aren't. It's a useful aggregation of such, though.

comment Copying a large directory tree locally? cp or rsync?
Doesn't taring the file take up double the space? So if you're transferring 10 GB, you'll need to reserve 20 GB at the destination site? Just checking on this.

Answer from @charnley at superuser.com/a/263296 helped quite a lot. Also, I would suggest this question to be merged with the answers from here.
