RESXTOP displays information based on worlds. Think of these as processes. A world can represent a VM and a VMKernel component.
On the RESXTOP screen we will see ID (World ID), GID (Resource Pool ID) and NAME (Name of the running world).
In later articles we’ll look at the four main categories of CPU, Memory, Networking and Storage
