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.
 
Regards,
Krishna.

Hello Paul,

The ESXi & vCenter poll interval is not configurable yet. However, we can reduce the vCenter polling interval from 15 minutes to 5 minutes from our next On-Premise Poller version which is expected to be released by the end of this month.

Regards,
Krishna.

Hello Paul,
 
Our apologies for the delay in update from our end. You can now configure the poll interval for VMware monitors (vCenter, ESX, VM, Datastore, Resource Pool) as per your requirement.
 
To do this, edit the monitor, choose the preferred polling interval under "check frequency"  and click save. 
 

 

Regards,

Krishna.
