Powershell tool for powering up or down tiles in a VMmark benchmark environment
Requires the VMware Powershell tool vSphere PowerCLI to be installed
The program will turn on or off all the VMs within a vSphere folder titled Tile[n] ("Tile" is case-sensitive for now) where n is the tile number.
The tile number can be given as:
- single number
- comma separated list of tile numbers
- range of tile numbers
The default behavior is to turn VMs on
Tilepower.ps1 -vc <vCenter Server> -u <Username> -p <Password> -t <Tile number(s)> (-h)
-vc vCenter Server Hostname or IP address of the vCenter server where the tiles are located
-u Username Username of an administrator account on the vCenter server, typically "root"
-p Password Password of the administrator account
-t Tiles Accepts single tile, Comma separated list, or range of tiles. Lists must be enclosed in quotes.
-h Shutdown Including this flag will shutdown or power off VMs rather than turning them on by default
Turn off VMs in Tiles 3 through 5
tilepower.ps1 -vc vcenter-test -u root -p p@ssword -t '3-5' -h
Turn on VMs in Tile 0,2,4
tilepower.ps1 -vc vcenter-test -u root -p p@ssword -t '0,2,4'
Turn on just Tile 1
tilepower.ps1 -vc vcenter-test -u root -p p@ssword -t 1
