Most of you will have noticed the regular downtime or incredible slowness of the Virtual Lifestyle website. I’m running this website on a VMware ESXi 3.5 build 130755 machine. A couple of days ago, I ran the command ‘vmkgdbd’ by accident, and might be the cause of all the problem’s I’m having.

I tried Googling for ‘vmkgdbd‘, searched the VMTN Communities, but I can’t find anything about it.Duncan Epping pointed out that the tool is the VMKernel debugger.

Now for the million-dollar question: how can I stop this tool wreaking all this havoc? Please comment below, send me a tweet or send me an e-mail if you know anything that could help me out and save me a 2 hour trip to the datacenter!
