Ever check on your VMs and they have been running on a snapshot for the last couple months? Committing a couple months worth of snapshots can take 1 to many hours depending on the hardware and disks present, well VMware has posted a video on how to create an alarm to alert you when virtual machines are running on snapshots.  Enjoy.
