Hi,

I have a backup host that has been working without incident.  Tonight I noticed the resource usage data is now showing as 0 for both CPU and memory.  And no surprise, it doesn't show for a VM running under it either.

I'm on ESXi 5.1.0, 2191751.  

??

Thanks!

If you look in the Summary, does it also show 0 for CPU and Memory ?

This has been happening to us for a while.

Two things we found can help but it does seem to come back again after a few weeks.

1. Restart Network Management agents on the host (e.g. /sbin/services.sh restart via SSH) - this does not effect running VMs.

2. Finally reboot the host.

Since this is our failover host, it was just as fast to reboot it.  That worked.  Thanks!

Sure would like to know why that was happening.  Oh well.
