As shows in screenshot CDP information is not available means CDP is not enabled on the ESXi virtual switch and physical switch.  You can check it on physical switch to make sure CDP is configured as well as on ESXi as mentioned above.  Once get configure you will able those details on vswitch.

Did you enable CDP on the virtual switches?

You can do that from a script, see Re: Enable CDP on vSwitch on all hosts

I'm afraid not, that information is only collected when CDP is enabled on the virtual and physical switches.
