There are tons of scripts out there that report on rogue snapshots that cause clutter in your environment. The first script in our top-10 list, vCheck, has the ability to track down these snapshots through a plug-in.

That said, this script, written by Chris Uys, is one that I've been using for a few years now. It's not complicated; it produces a simple HTML email that checks for snapshots and reports on the name of the VM, the name of the snapshot, a description of the snapshot, when the snapshot was created and the name of the host.
