- Please increase the java heap memory to the probe which is set very low:
options = -Xms128m -Xmx2048m -Duser.language=en -Duser.country=US
options = -Xms2048m -Xmx4096m -Duser.language=en -Duser.country=US
- Then Deactivate the vmware probe.
- Wait until the port and PID disappear.
- Activate it.
- Test the probe to see if youre then getting the expected datastore alarms when the value crosses the threshold.
For this issue the additional 'memory' increase may help but Auto Monitors are preferred over Static Monitors for several reasons including performance and scalability.
For more information, see:
We highly recommend using the Admin Console with the vmware probe.
We don’t recommend using IM anymore for the vmware probe as it simply doesn’t scale as well over time, and moreover, vmware templates are extremely useful in the Admin Console.
