open vm Tools "complaining" - skipping overflow

Before posting something, READ the changelog, WATCH the videos, howto and provide following:
Your install is: Bare metal, ESXi, what CPU model, RAM, HD, what EVE version you have, output of the uname -a and any other info that might help us faster.

open vm Tools "complaining" - skipping overflow

Post by Chris929 » Thu Jul 20, 2017 9:10 am

Using the ESX-Version of EVE I noticed, that the File vmware-vmsvc.log gets 2 Entries every 30 seconds:

root@eve-ng:/opt/unetlab/data/Logs# cat /var/log/vmware-vmsvc.log

[Jul 20 11:09:38.985] [ message] [vmsvc] GuestInfoAddNicEntry: NIC limit (64) reached, skipping overflow.

However everything seems to work fine - does anyone know, what this is and does anyone know if this can be ignored or not?

okay - thanks.
However - do you know what skipping overflow actually means?
Just curious.
