You can use vSphere Web Access to configure more advanced settings of virtual machine management. Advanced settings include log management, enabling or disabling acceleration, paravirtualization support, MMU support, and modifying virtual machine configuration files.

You can configure the following advanced settings:

What kind of information is collected while ESX or vCenter Server is running.

Enabling and disabling logging.

Disabling acceleration if a program cannot run in your virtual machine.

Enabling Virtual Machine Interface (VMI) paravirtualization to increase performance on hosts that support paravirtualization.

Specifying whether and how virtualized MMU support is used.

Modifying virtual machine configuration file parameters.


Do not change any configuration file parameters unless you are instructed to do so in the documentation or by VMware technical support.
