VMware applying a template

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?


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
