When benchmarking with Login VSI you often want to collect more performance data from your ESX host with ESXtop. I use a script that will start the Login VSI tests automatically and also start capturing ESXtop data.

Tweet Fader has updated to version 1.3.0 with Twitter API v1.1 support. In order to support the v1.1 API some requirements are added to the Tweet Fader plugin. Twitter decided to make authentication required and therefore I added the options to add specific keys from Twitter. My goal in the future is to improve this but for now you need to create an application with your Twitter account.
