Problem:

After startup of the vmware probe, an alarm was generated:

vmware alarm message:
"<hostname> is not responding (reason: Unexpected fatal error in data collection. Collection will not resume until probe is restarted. See log for details. )"

Environment:
- vmware probe v6.72 - Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard
Cause:

Not enough memory configured.

Resolution:

Increase java memory for the vmware probe, for example using raw Configure increase the min/max memory values to:

 

<startup>
options = -Xms2048m -Xmx4096m -Duser.language=en -Duser.country=US
</startup>

 

Then click Ok/Apply

Then 'cold start' the probe (Deactivate-Activate).
