ESXi host suddenly failed

I had a situation recently where 4 of my hosts disconnected on the same day. It happened mostly out of office hours in the early morning. 

I'm trying to find out the reason so I checked my hostd.log and found errors like those below, but cannot find any real explanation for these errors online. Any suggestions?

what do you mean by failed? Did the host rebooted on its own?
Are these hostd logs are the time of the issue? please share vmkernel and vobd logs prior to reboot.

If it’s auto rebooted, the usual suspect will be a BIOS configuration or power management.
