Data Object Description

The RuntimeInfo data object type provides information about the execution state and history of a virtual machine.

Properties

Name Type Description
bootTime*xsd:dateTime The timestamp when the virtual machine was most recently powered on.

This property is updated when the virtual machine is powered on from the poweredOff state, and is cleared when the virtual machine is powered off. This property is not updated when a virtual machine is resumed from a suspended state.

connectionStateVirtualMachineConnectionState Indicates whether or not the virtual machine is available for management.
host*ManagedObjectReference
to a HostSystem
The host that is responsible for running a virtual machine. This property is null if the virtual machine is not running and is not assigned to run on a particular host.
maxCpuUsage*xsd:int Current upper-bound on CPU usage. The upper-bound is based on the host the virtual machine is current running on, as well as limits configured on the virtual machine itself or any parent resource pool. Valid while the virtual machine is running.
maxMemoryUsage*xsd:int Current upper-bound on memory usage. The upper-bound is based on memory configuration of the virtual machine, as well as limits configured on the virtual machine itself or any parent resource pool. Valid while the virtual machine is running.
memoryOverhead*xsd:long The amount of memory resource (in bytes) that will be used by the virtual machine above its guest memory requirements. This value is set if and only if the virtual machine is registered on a host that supports memory resource allocation features.
numMksConnectionsxsd:int Number of active MKS connections to this virtual machine.
powerStateVirtualMachinePowerState The current power state of the virtual machine.
question*VirtualMachineQuestionInfo The current question, if any, that is blocking the virtual machine's execution.
suspendInterval*xsd:long The total time the virtual machine has been suspended since it was initially powered on. This time excludes the current period, if the virtual machine is currently suspended. This property is updated when the virtual machine resumes, and is reset to zero when the virtual machine is powered off.
suspendTime*xsd:dateTime The timestamp when the virtual machine was most recently suspended.

This property is updated every time the virtual machine is suspended.

toolsInstallerMountedxsd:boolean Flag to indicate whether or not the VMware Tools installer is mounted as a CD-ROM.
