VCenter no longer provides performance statistics for all ESX hosts. When checking MOB, VM stats do not show. VCenter status itself displays correctly. Credentials are confirmed to be working. In the Virtualization module logs we can see:

2016-04-04 16:21:59,878 STP SmartThreadPool Thread #4 [N (null)] ERROR SolarWinds.VIM.Pollers.VMware.VMwareService.Vim25.VMwareVim25Poller - VMware Job Polling node - can't get performance counters. All values set to zero.
System.Web.Services.Protocols.SoapException: This operation is restricted by the administrator - 'vpxd.stats.maxQueryMetrics'. Contact your system administrator.


• STM 6.2

• Windows 2008

• VCenter 5.5+


In vSphere 5.5 Update 2d and later and vSphere 6.0, a limit is set to the number of entities that are included in a database query. The limit protects the vCenter Server database from receiving large queries.
