    What is typical network trffic between vSphere and ESXi hosts?

    larry96 Novice

      We have multiple ROBO sites with a central vCenter server. My network team is telling me that they are seeing what they would consider excessive traffic between the vCenter server and the ESXi hosts. They are seeing about a GB per day between each ESXi host and the vCenter server.

       

      The application they are seeing is WBEM CIM-XML (HTTPS) and running on port 5989. I understand that that is hardware monitoring, but I would agree that a GB a day is somewhat excessive.

       

      Could someone help me understand the traffic so I can explain it to my network team, or do we have a configuration issue.

       

      We are running 6.0

       

      Thanks,
