ESXTOP via vSphere Web Client

I was impressed when I saw this latest fling from VMware. This add-on provides detailed performance stats through the Web Client GUI, previously ESXTOP was only accessible through the command line. All flings are in a ‘experimental technical preview state’ but this is a handy one to see in the future.

If you have not used ESXTOP for performance stats before, I suggest you take a look at this fantastic guide on how to interpret them – click here.
