vSphere Monitoring - Opsview Server has constant high CPU load

Hi,

We are using Opsview Pro for a year now, monitoring about 120 hosts, about 100 of which are VMware vSphere guests and 14 are VM hosts.

The check_vmware_api.pl script we installed from the vSphere Opspack is causing way too high CPU load on the server as it opens seperate perl connections for each monitored service on each guest and host.

Is there a way to retrieve multiple (or even all) services per vmware service check or is this a limitation of the check_vmware_api.pl script that Opsview utilizes?

Would there be any work to incorporate the pysphere script into Opsview like check_mk is working with in their most recent innovation releases?
