The virtualisation software supplier, VKernel announced the free tool last week. It can help in the documentation and inventory recording of virtual machines (VMs), the company said.

Called SnapshotMyVM, it is a standalone application that can do the tedious job of documenting and recording all the virtual machines that are available and that work with VMware's ESX server environments. The tool is available from the company's website at no charge.

"Documenting physical servers is one of a systems administrator's least desirable and time-consuming tasks ," VKernel founder and chief executive, Alex Bakman, said in a statement. "In a virtual data center, it becomes even more challenging as the environment is dynamic and static documentation becomes quickly outdated."

SnapshotMyVM is intended as a tool to automate the process and so make it easier to identify, document, and get an inventory of virtual machines.
