difference of the CIM bundle from ESXi HP Customized image ISO from the one downloaded in VMware

We are using nagios as monitoring for ESXi

Whenever we get this alert CHECK_NRPE: Socket timeout after 20 seconds.

We restart or stop/start the sfcbd-watchdog

But this happens a lot

 

Most of the time the restart fails and stop start will do the trick and the nagios alert will go away

 

So I tail the syslog.log and whenever the error appears I see this error

Then I have to do the stop start again of the service and alert is clear again

I was planning to to reinstall ESXi using HP customized image since once of the forums I saw says it disappear after using the customized image. And the same error I see in the forum

Does using the latest HP provides its own CIM bundle?

Using the HP custom ISO for ESX installation will include the hp-smx, hp-Util and other CIM providers for ESXi. This will definitely improve hardware status reporting.
