When managing your resources, you must be aware of what your goals are.

In addition to resolving resource overcommitment, resource management can help you accomplish the following:

  • Performance Isolation: Prevent virtual machines from monopolizing resources and guarantee predictable service rates.
  • Efficient Usage: Exploit undercommitted resources and overcommit with graceful degradation.
  • Easy Administration: Control the relative importance of virtual machines, provide flexible dynamic partitioning, and meet absolute service-level agreements.
