Virtual machine stop logging to vmware.log

Over the weekend my fried did migration from NetAPP 3040 to IBM N6060 using SVmotion. After couple of days he found that some of the VMs stop logging to their vmware.log and the last entry in a log was ” Log Throttled ”

Jun 01 05:01:56.978: vcpu-3|
Jun 01 05:01:56.978: vcpu-3| <<< Log Throttled >>>

Restart, Stop and Start VM, remove vmware.log file doesn’t help.  To solve problem he had to Remove VM from inventory and add it again.
