Watch the Progress of VMware ESX Snapshots Commiting

Through SSH logged in as root or su'd, navigate to the folder where the vmx file resides for a vm that is commiting a snapshot. Run the following command:

watch -d "ls -lhtu *vmdk"

When there is no more activity and all *.delta.vmdk's are gone it has finished.
