Dear MAA

This can be done with Performance Counters using the PerfCount Custom sensor.

This channel definition provides you the clock rate of the first CPU and its first core:

\Processor Information(0,0)\Processor Frequency::MHz

"Unable to connect to the specified computer, or the computer is offline. (Performance Counter error 0x800007D0)"

I am sorry, I overlooked the "ESXi" part. Only Windows computers can be monitored this way, (as long as the Remote Registry Windows service is running on the target device.)

Dear MAA

PRTG has no out-of-the-box sensors for this. If you somehow can get the frequency (with a script via SOAP for example) you could create a custom script to import that data to PRTG.
