Use of Resource Pools in VMware vSphere DRS Clusters
Source: Global Knowledge
Resource Pools are often misunderstood, disliked, and untrusted by vSphere Administrators who have been burned due to unexpected results of improperly configured resource pools. This white paper examines several scenarios based on actual customer resource pool implementations. Some scenarios describe examples of poorly configured pools. Other scenarios describe examples of resource pools that were well-configured to obtain the desired result. We will also briefly examine how Shares, Limits, and Reservations settings on a resource pool are applied.
