NAME
vmt -- VMware Tools driver
SYNOPSIS
vmt0 at cpufeaturebus*
DESCRIPTION
The vmt driver is a kernel level implementation of VMware Tools. VMware Tools are intended to provide better support for operating systems run- ning inside virtual machines. vmt handles shutdown, reboot, resume requests from the host by sending events using sysmon_pswitch(9) of type PSWITCH_TYPE_POWER, PSWITCH_TYPE_RESET, and PSWITCH_TYPE_SLEEP that can be handled by powerd(8). vmt will log notifications that the guest has been suspended or resumed by the host. vmt reports the guest's hostname and first non-loopback IP address to the host.
