In an VMware Cloud on AWS environment, you can examine the VMs and hosts in a cluster.


  1. In the vSphere Client, click Menu and select Hosts and Clusters.
  2. Select Cluster-1.
    In VMware Cloud on AWS, a single cluster holds the configuration settings. Because the settings are predefined, a second cluster is not needed.
  3. Click VMs to examine virtual machines and vApps.
    1. Check how much CPU and memory that each VM is consuming, and check the allocated and used storage.
    2. Right-click a down arrow in the title bar to show or hide columns in this display.
    3. If you want to make changes to a VM or vApp, select it, right-click the VM in the object hierarchy, click Settings, and make the change.
      See the Virtual Machine Management documentation for VMware Cloud on AWS for details.
  4. Click Hosts to see the resource that the hosts in the cluster are consuming.
    You can request additional hosts if current resource useage shows that you'll need them soon.
