Some host hardware sensors display data that is cumulative over time. You can reset these sensors to clear the data in them and begin collecting new data.

If you need to preserve sensor data for troubleshooting or other purposes, take a screenshot, export the data, or download a support bundle before resetting sensors.


Launch the vSphere Client and log in to a vCenter Server system.

Ensure that the vCenter Hardware Status plug-in is enabled.


  1. Select a host in the object navigator or the iventory tree.
  2. Click Reset sensors.
