While the virtualization community continues to debate on the real-world value of the VMmark benchmark platform, VMware continues to update it.
VMmark 1.1.1 was released at the end of April with the following updates:
- The VMmark harness has been updated to include automation of hypervisor and workload virtual machine reporting for disclosure
- The reporting script has been updated to support a future version of VMware ESX
(is this referring to vSphere?)
- A new VMmarkConfigChecker script is included to help confirm that the workload virtual machines comply with the Run and Reporting Rules for VMmark
- The disclosure.html template has been updated
Starting June 1st, VMware only accepts benchmarks submissions scored with this new version of VMmark.
