Would like to see a sample about accessing a VMWare host [farm]

Hello !

Thanks for providing this lib! I am just new to this all [the VM world and their APIs] and do not really understand, where to start. Due to some notes in a VMWare whitepaper, one should not use the automation API to make checks for performance regularly, due to influence of this API calls.

Is there probably a sample, where to access a VM Farm, list their hosts [NOT VMs] and get performance data for some of their VMs??

Anyway, thanks for this lib! Feel more comfortbale starting then with powershell.

You need the management SDK or some kind. The VixCOM API is for working with individual VMs, it's beyond the scope of this project. Try the VMWare forums.
