Get reserved Memory of ESXi Host

With the command Get-VMHost you can read values ​​such as the current memory consumption or the total number memory of a host. But I didn’t find a way to read out the value of the allocated memory of the subobjects (the VMs).

Here is an example of how this can be done. The script outputs a list of all hosts. In the attribute “AllocatedVMMemoryGB” you can see how much memory has been over-provisioned or it shows how much memory you could still use.

Scriptblock to check PVS Connection

One possibility would be to retrieve the status of the PVS-services, but it is unclear whether one can actually connect to the servers trough PVS commands.

Nextcloud App recommendations

Personally I am a huge fan of NextCloud currently I run 4 environments with over total over 100 users.
Already in the beginnings of OwnCloud I have been working with it and I switched relatively quickly to the fork “NextCloud”. It seems to me that a lot has happened since the fork, the community has grown much bigger. Another advantage is that you have your own DataShareing solution without using commercial products.

I would like to present you my Top 5 solutions, which I use on every NextCloud environment.
