I have successfully turned up our vm information sources monitor on the firewall, but it appears to be missing random data, information, vlans, and networking mostly. I'm wondering if this is in relation to a timeout that is occurring because our VM's are so numerous. How would one confirm this? Almost all of the vm's I can get info on, it's just that it's missing vswitch/port/vlan id info....

Is there a solution to this, or is this a limitation of this setup? Probably that same would happen if you directly monitored the ESXi host? That is exactly what is happening. It is using a distributed virtual switch, and that is why it's not pulling in the information.
Would look into using Panorama VMware vCenter plugin which can pull vDS info.
