After update vCenter database grows excessively

When update 2 came out for vCenter 6 recently I jumped on it.  Thinking that since it was an update there should not be any issues to come from it.  Then one day I was looking at the Xtrem IO and noticed close to 1TB of bandwidth being used.    I saw that all the activity was coming from the SQL server that our vCenter used.  So I immediately got with our DBA, and  he confirmed that it was vCenter creating all that IO.  Luckly VMware support was able to quickly send me to this article.
