Splunk VMWare Soap Fault

I'm noticing some issue in the splunk_for_vmware/engineperf_splunk_for_vmware.log

[2012-08-18 12:13:00 UTC] error: Server load was too heavy so heartbeat skipped 38 times since last beat.
[2012-08-18 12:13:00 UTC] error: Reconnect because

SOAP Fault:

Fault string: The session is not authenticated.
Fault detail: NotAuthenticatedFault...

I've checked credentials and all seems fine, this has only happened since i've started to query a much different Virtual Center with much more data, as I was previously using a small test lab.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

As the heartbeat tells the server load is too heavy, the environment requires more forwarder to collect the data on time and avoid the serialized session timeout.

Please reference the doc on how to duplicate and configure your forwarders.
