VMT(4)                   BSD Kernel Interfaces Manual                   VMT(4)

NAME
     vmt -- VMware Tools driver

SYNOPSIS
     vmt0 at mainbus0

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 and reboot requests from the host by signalling
     init(8) with SIGUSR2 and SIGINT respectively.  vmt will log notifications
     that the guest has been suspended or resumed by the host.  It also pro-
     vides access to the host machine's clock as a timedelta sensor.

     vmt reports the guest's hostname and first non-loopback IP address to the
     host.

SEE ALSO
     init(8), sensorsd(8), sysctl(8)

     A vmwh helper program is available via packages(7).

HISTORY
     The vmt driver first appeared in OpenBSD 4.4.

AUTHORS
     The vmt driver was written by David Gwynne <dlg@openbsd.org>.
