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.
