User dcui@127.0.0.1 logged in as pyvmomi every 30 seconds in log

 

Hi all!

The problem is that Events section in Host-Monitor is not readable at all, because is full of messages

User dcui@127.0.0.1 logged in as pyvmomi

User dcui@127.0.0.1 logged out (login time: Monday, September 20, 2021 2:26:48 PM MSK, number of API invocations: 0, user agent: pyvmomi)

They are emerging every 30 seconds and totally overwhelm the log. So if you need to find some events even for 24h ago, it is becoming almost impossible.

I tried to find out what is the reason, checked crontab, but found nothing suspicious, probably because it's clean ESXi image without any vendor stuff.

Is there any way to either find out what the hell is causing this or at least disable these noise in log?

 

Thanks in advance

can you perform the below workaround

  • Run this command in ESXi host command line to stop the vnicen service

     /etc/init.d/vnicen.sh stop 

  • Ensure that the vnicen does not start upon reboot:

      chkconfig vnicen.sh off

  •       To confirm this setting:

      chkconfig --list | grep vnicen
       vnicen.sh               off

Hi, Srijithk

Thanks for your try!

Unfortunately, there is no such service, so i predictevely got the following answer: 

-sh: /etc/init.d/vnicen.sh: not found

I have attached a screen with /etc/init.d/ contents so you can see by yourself.

BTW ESXi version is 6.7u3
