August 30, 2010 10:00 AMSolarWinds has released a free tool, VM Console, for managing ESX-based virtual machines. VM Console can shut down and restart a VM--also known as "bouncing a VM"--and track multiple VMs from a dashboard without administrators having to log in to VMware's vCenter or vSphere. It also lets administrators track up/down status and take a snapshot to compare the VM before and after it's bounced. Administrators can also search VM names or IP addresses. The company, which develops management software such as Orion Network Performance Monitor, has a mandate to release at least one new, free tool on a quarterly basis.
