NAME

       vmsync - vmware kernel module

SYNOPSIS

       modprobe vmsync

DESCRIPTION

       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.

OPTIONS

       vmsync has no options.
