Top 10 GVMs with threat detected details is displayed as blank even though "Network Threat detected" & "Virus Detected" graph on home page displays data post re-registration of DCS service with NSX

The Home page widgets "Network threats detected" & "Virus detected" will continue showing data for the old events, even after an administrator performs one of the following cleanup activities: 

  1. Deletion of Guest VMs on which events are generated.  
  2. Explicit Re-registration of NSX and SVA by administrator. 

Network Threat detected & Virus Detected graphs continues to display the data, whereas no data is displayed for "Top 10 GVMs with network threats remediated" & "Top 10 GVMs with virus threats remediated".

The graph displayed under "Network threats detected" & "Virus detected" should not display any data, once clean up is done and post clean up a new SVA is registered . This creates confusion since the other data for the Top 10 GVMs is not displayed.


This event data will get cleaned/purged based on the event purging configurations.  

However the other two widgets "Top 10 GVMs with network threats remediated"  and  "Top 10 GVMs with virus threats remediated" will always be in sync with the Guest
VM inventory.
