Using ESXTOP with OSX Terminal application displays incorrectly

If are a VMware Admin switching from Windows to Mac you will find some limitations, even if lately VMware solved one of the major problems making the vSphere Web Client fully compatible with Mac in version 5.5.

Speaking about running ESXTOP from Mac, if you tried it you know you won’t be able to get any understandable data out of it and the reason seems to be the default ┬átype of emulation that needs to be changed from “xterm-256color” to “xterm”.

Thanks to this post on the PunchingClouds Blog (bookmark it, it’s one of the good ones!) now this is not a problem anymore.
