We currently have 4 VMWare instances collected by the VMWare probe, but twice now on one instance the metrics stop being collected, we have seen the following message in the log:

java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Attempting to add relationship that already exists.


Release : 20.3

Component : UIM - VMWARE

This issue may occur in vmware probe version 7.14, 7.14_HF3, and 7.15

vmware 7.15 replaced with vmware 7.16-T3 to resolve the issue.


Download and deploy vmware 7.16-T3

This version resolves the reported issue where vmware QOS data stops being collected: java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Attempting to add relationship tht already exists.

Additional Information

After upgrade to vmware 7.15 alarms are not clearing as expected and probe throws errors
