Error send to root account in ESXi

On a HPE Proliant Server upgraded to ESXi 6.0 U3 image: VMware-ESXi-6.0.0-Update3-6921384-HPE-600. I get the error sent to root-account:

WorldList: malloc failed when allocating allNodes list

So, you can see the error every few minutes when you logged in to console or using SSH. In /var/log/vmkernel.log you can see this error:

User: 3820: sfcb-intelcim: wantCoreDump:sfcb-intelcim signal:6 exitCode:0 coredump:disabled

This is caused by a problem with HPE WBEM providers. You can try to restart them by running: /etc/init.d/sfcbd-watchdog restart or restarting management agents on ESXi host. When this does not work, you can stop the providers by running /etc/init.d/sfcbd-watchdog stop until the next reboot of the host.
