We recently upgraded our vCenter and our ESXi hosts to 6.7 U3.
We noticed that the SEAT DB was filling up quite fast.
Last week stats:
Somehow we are getting a lot more events compared to pre-upgrade (6.5).
To avoid reaching 100% usage, I purged some of the biggest event tables in VCSA and I changed all statistics level to level 1 and changed retention to 30 days (default settings).
I investigated and found that our vCenter is logging plenty of “Host hardware sensor state” events:
These events are new and we didn’t have them pre-upgrade.
I found other people having the same issue:
I created a ticket at VMware support. I’m waiting for an agent to contact me.
Meanwhile, does anyone else experience this?
Do you have a trick to stop these specific “Host hardware sensor state” events from being generated?
