[PowerCLI] Show ESX cluster CPU/Mem averages

As a follow-up on my earlier [PowerCLI] Report ESX vCPU vs pCPU & Memory ratio script, I created a script that only shows average CPU and Memory usages per Cluster.
This brief cluster overview is (for example) usable for management reporting.

See [PowerCLI] Report ESX vCPU vs pCPU & Memory ratio for more information about how to read the output.

  Shows average cluster resources usage
  The script shows information about vCPU to pCPU ratio and memory usage/commitment. Excludes hosts in Maintenance.
  Based on CheckResources.ps1 script.

  Table output in the 5 columns.

[PowerCLI] Change DefaultPSP and SATP/PSP for every lun on every host

Changing the default Path Selection Policy (PSP) on every host can be time consuming challenge, after that you also need to change the PSP on every lun on every host.
In the past you needed to SSH login to every host and change the settings “manually”, but there is also a PowerCLI way to do that. Using PowerCLI cmdlet Get-EsxCli you can execute the esxcli command from PowerCLI directly to the host. Using foreach to loop through all the hosts and check and change with Get-EsxCli the setting on every host and lun.
You can simply change the $VMW_SATP and $VMW_PSP for your required Storage Array Type Plugin (SATP) and Path Selection Policy (PSP), the script below is configured for IBM SVC-based systems (SVC, V7000, Actifio).



$allVMhost = Get-VMHost | sort Name
foreach ($vmhost in $allVMhost){
	$esxcli = $vmhost | Get-EsxCli
	#Check VMW_SATP
	if ($esxcli.storage.nmp.satp.list() | where-object {$_.Name -eq $VMW_SATP -and $_.DefaultPSP -eq $VMW_PSP}){write-host "Default $VMW_SATP $VMW_PSP $vmhost correct"}
	#Check VMW_PSP
	$psprrlun = $esxcli.storage.nmp.device.list() | where-object {$_.StorageArrayType -eq $VMW_SATP -and $_.PathSelectionPolicy -ne $VMW_PSP} | Select Device
	if ($psprrlun -eq $null){write-host "LUN setting $VMW_SATP $VMW_PSP $vmhost correct"}
	else{foreach ($lun in $psprrlun | foreach { $_.Device }){$esxcli.storage.nmp.device.set($null, $lun, $VMW_PSP)}}


[PowerCLI] Report ESX vCPU vs pCPU & Memory ratio

Here is a script that will show you 3 things per host:
1. vCPU:pCPU ratio,
2. Host Memory Granted,
3. Host Memory Used.

It will count all the vCPUs on a host and the (physical) pCPUs, the vCPU differed by pCPU is the ratio. The vCPU:pCPU should in my opinion be:
High CPU load environment <4:1 Medium CPU load environment ~4:1 Low CPU load environment >4:1

The “Host Memory Granted” percentage value is the sum of all VM granted memory compared to the total host memory, you can also call this Worst-Case usage. The “Host Memory Used” percentage is the real value of the host used memory.
“Host Memory Granted” should be <90% unless you know what you are doing. "Host Memory Used" should be <80% depending on the cluster size (see Duncan’s HA Deep Dive).

$TotalNumvCPUs = 0
Foreach ($Cluster in (Get-Cluster |Sort Name)){
  $HostNumvCPUs = 0
  $HostNumvMem  = 0
  $array = @();
  Foreach ($ESXHost in ($Cluster |Get-VMHost |Sort Name)){
    Foreach ($VM in ($ESXHost |Get-VM)){ # or only powered on, Foreach ($VM in ($ESXHost |Get-VM| Where-Object {$_.PowerState -eq "PoweredOn"})){
	  $HostNumvCPUs += ($VM).NumCpu
	  $HostNumvMem  += "{0:N0}" -f ($VM).MemoryGB
	$HostCPUratio   = "{0:N0}" -f ($HostNumvCPUs / ($ESXHost).NumCpu)
	$HostMemUsable  = "{0:N0}" -f (($ESXHost | Get-View).Hardware.MemorySize/1GB)
	$HostGrantedMem = "{0:N0}" -f ($HostNumvMem/$HostMemUsable*100)
	$HostUSageMem   = "{0:N0}" -f (($ESXHost).MemoryUsageGB/$HostMemUsable*100)
	$HostVar = @{cluster=$($Cluster.name); host=$($ESXHost.name); HostCPURatio=$HostCPUratio + ":1"; HostMemGranted=$HostGrantedMem + "%"; HostMemUsed=$HostUSageMem + "%"} 
	$Newobject = New-Object PSObject -Property $HostVar
	$array += $Newobject
        $TotalNumvCPUs += $HostNumvCPUs
	$TotalNumvMem  += $HostNumvMem
        $HostNumvCPUs = 0
	$HostNumvMem  = 0
  $array | Select-Object cluster,host,HostCPURatio,HostMemGranted,HostMemUSed | Format-Table -AutoSize
  $TotalNumvCPUs = 0

[PowerCLI] Check Ballooning vCenter wide (quick)

I used the Check Ballooning script allot in the pasted, the script can be found on many blogs and sites. I simply adjusted the script so it would also show Compressed Memory.
Why add “Compressed Memory”?, it gives a extra dimension to the ballooning an swapped values.
Compressed Memory tells you how memory intensive the VM is, so:
Higher compression value then the ballooning or the swapped: Lower priority
Lower compression value then the ballooning or the swapped: Higher priority

The code I use:

$myCol = @()
foreach($vm in (Get-View -ViewType VirtualMachine | Where-Object `
  {$_.Summary.QuickStats.BalloonedMemory -ne "0"})){
    $Details = "" | Select-Object VM, BalloonedMemory ,SwappedMemory ,CompressedMemory
    $Details.VM = $vm.Name
    $Details.BalloonedMemory  = $vm.Summary.QuickStats.BalloonedMemory
    $Details.SwappedMemory    = $vm.Summary.QuickStats.SwappedMemory
    $Details.CompressedMemory = $vm.Summary.QuickStats.CompressedMemory
    $myCol += $Details

Based on the script of ICT-Freak.
