Hi krowczynski,

Thanks for the info!

It's true - we depend on the Heartbeat Status we receive from the VMware API. And, as you saw in that forum post - this information can be unreliable sometimes.

Best idea for the moment is probably to disable that Monitor, as advised; you still receive all other events and metrics related to VMs, so you still have good visibility of VM status.

Let's hope a VMware update will fix the stability of the Heartbeat alarms from VC.

Thanks again!

Hy,


I know it is an old post, but is there any improvement on Veeam side (or VmWare side) about Heartbeat Stability ?

Thanks.

Hello Imrane,

You're right, this is a 2 years old thread... can you please tell me if you have any issues with this monitor? What vSphere version are you currently running?

Thanks!
