Is it possible to change the poll interval for vCenter or ESXi Server monitors?

Paul, Can you tell us why you want to change the poll interval? Currently it's not possible.

Hi Jasper

I think the current interval is 15 mins? Which in that time a host may have crashed and rebooted without any notification. I don't understand why an ESXi host isn't treated the same as a physical server with the ability to reduce the poll interval.

Hello Paul,
Currently, the poll interval for hosts is five minutes, and it's not configurable.
Our team is working on configuring poll intervals for VMware related monitors. Will update this thread once it is done.
