    VMware ESX Logs Filling Up w/ SNMP Errors

      We are trying to make use of the VMware monitoring features and like what we see very much.  However, when we point the Solarwinds pollers to monitor an ESX host, the VMware admins are reporting that they start to immediately see their logs fill up with errors like those below.  Is anyone else seeing errors like this in VMware?  When we stop monitoring the ESX servers the errors stop.  We also see similar errors for some of the network interfaces.  Please note that we do run NFS to our "SAN" storage (NetApp filer).

      If anyone sees something similar in their ESX logs I'd be very intersted in hearing about it please.

      Thank you,                                Shaun
