Number of ports on vSwitch

Does anybody know why there is difference between vSwitch port number I can see through VI Client and number which I can see in Service Console through esxcfg-vswitch command? Through service console command I see lower number of unused ports (-8) on first vSwitch after default install of ESX.

The number of ports that are there is technically the higher of the two numbers, say the VIC shows 56, the real answer is 64 (56+8) This is because the system grabs and utilizes those first 8 ports.

Hope this was helpful.
