VMware: Quick stats on [SERVERNAME] is not up-to-date

Few weeks ago I upgraded for a customer vCenter Server 5.5. to 6.0, today I received a yellow warning in the Summary tab:

Quick stats on [SERVERNAME] is not up-to-date




This is a known issue in vCenter Server 5.5 and 6.0.

  • This issue is resolved in VMware vCenter Server 5.5.0b.
  • Currently there is no resolution for vCenter Server 6.0.

To work around this issue, add these quickStats parameters to the Advanced Settings of vCenter Server:

  • vpxd.quickStats.HostStatsCheck
  • vpxd.quickStats.ConfigIssues

Note: Adding these parameters to vCenter Server does not affect future upgrades.

To add the quickStats parameters to the Advanced Settings of vCenter Server 6.0:

  1. Connect to the vCenter Server using the vSphere Client and administrator credentials.
  2. Select Administration > vCenter Server Settings to display the vCenter Server Settings dialog box.
  3. In the settings list, select Advanced Settings.
  4. Add the following parameters:
  5. vpxd.quickStats.HostStatsCheck = False

    vpxd.quickStats.ConfigIssues = False


  6. Restart the vCenter Server services. For more information, see:
