This patch updates the esx-base, esx-update, vsan and vsanhealth VIBs to resolve the following issue:

  • PR 2515603: Incorrect allocation of persistent memory (PMem) in non-uniform memory access (NUMA) nodes might cause performance issues

    In certain cases, a virtual machine might run on one NUMA node and the VMkernel might allocate PMem to that virtual machine from a different NUMA node. As a result, access to non-volatile dual in-line memory modules (NVDIMM) in the virtual machine becomes remote and might cause performance issues.

    This issue is resolved in this release. For more information, see VMware knowledge base article 78094.
