vmsync(9) vmware kernel module


modprobe vmsync


This is a Linux kernel module. It isn't backed by a virtual hardware device, so it must be loaded manually. It is depended on by vmware-guestd(8), so ideally it should be loaded prior to starting vmware-guestd(8) (though vmware-guestd(8) can function without it). This module is used for freezing and thawing the filesystem.


vmsync has no options.
