Kernrate Viewer, VMware Player, Intelppm

Reading this article on high CPU spikes on Mark Russinovich’s blog the other day found about Kernrate Viewer, coming very handy when looking at some high kernel times today on a Windows XP (x32) VM running locally in VMware Player 4.

A quick search found this article on Virtual PC Guy's blog – setting the two registry keys from 1 to 4 seems to have somewhat solved the problem, although now “hal” is showing quite high, I might need to look into that a little further...

Update 28 March 2012

You may find that after the registry change that vmware-vmx.exe will exhibit constant high CPU consumption on the host system, in which case you might want to revert back to the default registry values.
