Quick Stats on Host not up-to-date

In VMware vSphere client (native and web client), sometimes you get this message in Summary tab of a host: “Configuration Issues: Quick stats on Host ‘xyz’ is not up-to-date”
Most of the times this message disappears after a while but sometimes it bothers for a long time. In those cases, a quick ‘Reconfigure for vSphere HA’ may clear the message.

VMware vSphere ESXi 5.5 and Heartbleed

Well, bad news for those who upgraded to version 5.5 is that: apparently VMware ESXi 5.5 is one of few VMware products that is being affected by heartbleed vulnerability! because of using OpenSSL 1.0.1. As VMware confirmed here, they are working on it to give out a patch; although because ESXi’s are usually deployed in a private, protected environment; the effects of this vulnerability is mitigated. Still, we should monitor VMware website for latest patches.
