I had an idea for VM servers. I have noticed that some of my Ubuntu Linux servers running as VMWare VMs are showing environmental sensors. Of course these don’t report back any valid data so it is basically wasted data and polling cycle.
My idea is that if we see if a system’s mac vendor is for example VMWare, we could flag this system as a VM and then disable all environmental sensors? Not sure this would work but I wanted to throw the idea out there.
