It is said that there is an improved list of diagnostic tools in vSphere 5.5. I have not found a complete list describing these. Anyone here know which these are?

vSphere 5.5 is a much more stable product, but as for "improved list of diagnostic tools", they are much the same as 5.1.

What is the comparison against ESXi 5.1 or ESX 1.0 ?

I would be grateful for any link you have.

Collecting diagnostic information for VMware vCenter Server

there is the vCenter™ Support Assistant which is new-ish.

It works with vSphere 5.1 and vSphere 5.5., and now includes support for 5.5.
