Quick stats is not up-to-date in vSphere 5.5, 6.0 and 6.5

This error is very common and is a known issue in VMware support. The issue was resolved in ESXi 5.5b but has been popping up again with customer’s who have upgraded to 6.0. Although there is currently no resolution for vSphere 6.0, The workaround to resolve this issue in both versions is below.

Step 2. Navigate to the vCenter Server -> Manage -> Settings -> Advanced Settings
Step 3. Click Edit on the top right, then specify a new key as follows, then click Add

  • Key: vpxd.quickStats.HostStatsCheck
  • Value: False
    Step 4. Enter an additional key and value pair as follows, then click Add

    • Key: vpxd.quickStats.ConfigIssues
    • Value: False
      Step 5. Click OK then restart the vCenter Server Service.

      Resolution through vSphere Client (c#, thick, vi-client)

      Step 1. Log into the vSphere client with an Administrator and navigate to Administration -> vCenter Server Settings
      Step 2. Select Advanced Settings and add these two key pairs then click OK

    Thanks for the great walk through. Just wanted to add that “config.” needs to be added as a prefix to the key.

    I’ve set the keys with out “config.”

    Now vsphere web Client is hanging. How do i change or add “config.” if nothing comes out of ” manage tab’?

    Please let me know if there is a way to fix this.
