When you add vCenter Server to View or edit the vCenter Server settings, you can configure several options that set the maximum number of concurrent operations that are performed by vCenter Server and View Composer.

You configure these options in the Advanced Settings panel on the vCenter Server Information page.

Concurrent Operations Limits for vCenter Server and View Composer

Setting

Description

Max concurrent vCenter provisioning operations

Determines the maximum number of concurrent requests that View Manager can make to provision and delete full virtual machines in this vCenter Server instance.

The default value is 20.

This setting applies to full virtual machines only.

Max concurrent power operations

Determines the maximum number of concurrent power operations (startup, shutdown, suspend, and so on) that can take place on virtual machines managed by View Manager in this vCenter Server instance.

The default value is 50.

For guidelines for calculating a value for this setting, see Setting a Concurrent Power Operations Rate to Support View Desktop Logon Storms.

This setting applies to full virtual machines and linked clones.

Max concurrent View Composer maintenance operations

Determines the maximum number of concurrent View Composer refresh, recompose, and rebalance operations that can take place on linked clones managed by this View Composer instance.

The default value is 12.

Desktops that have active sessions must be logged off before a maintenance operation can begin. If you force users to log off as soon as a maintenance operation begins, the maximum number of concurrent operations on desktops that require logoffs is half the configured value. For example, if you configure this setting as 24 and force users to log off, the maximum number of concurrent operations on desktops that require logoffs is 12.

This setting applies to linked clones only.

Max concurrent View Composer provisioning operations

Determines the maximum number of concurrent creation and deletion operations that can take place on linked clones managed by this View Composer instance.

The default value is 8.

This setting applies to linked clones only.
