This check makes sure that items sent by the ESX special agent (hostsystems and VMs) are stil present later on. The information about this data can also be used for determining the architecture of a VMWare farm out of the monitoring data.

The check will get warning if a host or VM is powered off or suspended. But this can be configured via a check parameter.
