try checking below two logs, let us know if you can find relevant info event logs there.

/var/log/vmkwarning.log:
A summary of Warning and Alert log messages excerpted from the VMkernel logs.

/var/log/vmksummary.log:
A summary of ESXi host startup and shutdown, and an hourly heartbeat with uptime, number of virtual machines running, and service resource consumption. For more information. see Format of the ESXi 5.0 vmksummary log file (2004566).

FYI - Location of ESXi 5.1 and 5.5 log files (2032076)

I would expand each section as it may be a subsection of one of those.

Also, go to another tab and come back and/or refresh that tab. I have sometimes seen this where it shows everything as normal until you refresh it.. then it shows the problematic hardware sensor.

If you expand ALL the components you should be able to workout the issue.

Also are you using the OEM version of ESXi from IBM.

Check the hardware with IBM Diagnostics, clear the hardware IBM server logs, check memory, check CPU, Update firmware and BIOS.

Use Memtest86+ to test memory, check heat sinks, fans, memory is seated correctly.

These are areas which can trigger alerts.
