Which actions can be done to increase performance of the virtual machine?

A virtual machine performance graph shows the swap in value to be at 95 percent and the balloon value to be at 0 percent. Users of the virtual machines are complaining that performance is slow.

Which actions can be done to increase performance of the virtual machine? (Choose two)

A.
Use Storage vMotion to migrate the virtual machine

B.
Change the memory share value for this virtual machine to another datastore

C.
Install VMware Tools into this virtual machine to high

D.
Change the CPU share value for virtual machine to high

Explanation:
Sapping involves disk… In this case swapped to wherever the VM *.vswp is located.

Before D and B. After

A. if there is contention on a Datastore (then this would be good)
B. Makes no sense.. MEMORY share for a Datastore??? (Disk shares BUT NOT Memory)
C. YES! if no VMware Tool = no Ballooning.
D. Not CPU problem Memory problem.

So I believe A and C are correct.

    If B=Change the memory share value for this virtual machine to high, I believe the answer will be B and C

    1. sam says:

      I agree, B:should be “Change the memory share value for this virtual machine to high” and it would make sense for this question.

  2. sam says:

    C: is logical choice, but you can’t “Install VMware Tools into this virtual machine to high”. high of what?
