Large number of sockets sockets that are opened on ESXi
Why are there many open sockets on ESXi 4.1 opened with Virtual Server Protection?
If there is a large amount of virtual machine activity, for example numerous powering on and off of protected virtual machines, the ESXi leaves many sockets in a state where they will not be cleaned up. The sockets show that uses esxcli network connection list on the ESXi server.
This only affects ESXi 4.1 and appears to be a problem with that particular release (and its updates). In most cases a restart of management will correct the issues. Another alternative is to shut down and power on the Virtual Server Protection virtual machine (SVM).
