    As you may or may not know, you do not have root access to any host on VMWonAWS. For those of use who rely on esxtop as troubleshooting tool, there is still a way to see ESXi host performance despite not having root access! Take a look at William Lam's blog to see how you can still see what's going on behind the scenes. DISCLAIMER: If you are running Windows or a Mac you will need to install docker. This tool only runs natively on Linux. I use the docker container on my Mac and it works great!!! https://www.virtuallyghetto.com/2019/03/esxtop-and-vmware-cloud-on-aws.html
