Can you please provide some info on how VMTurbo calculates the capacity headroom?
The headroom is calculated based on the template that you have set within VMTurbo assuming some configurable consumption (don't know the defaults off the top of my head but I believe 70%) of allocated CPU and memory. It then says based on your desired state and any HA policies you have set how many more VMs could you fit into the cluster.
I'm sure somebody else on here has a much more in-depth understanding of the math behind it as well.
