VMware applying a template

All,

When you apply a template in the vmware probe to one or all of the VM's under an ESX server, the numbers the return screen presents are very weird.  Can you explain them?

Example:

On apollo I have a template with 3 things in it.  When I apply the template under Datacenters it should go out to all vms under there.  The numbers I get back are: found 311 vm's.  177 monitors added.

Why is this?  Didn't all 311 vm's need my template?  If I try to reapply the template it gives me the same numbers.

Prospect is asking why the weird numbers.  Thanks
