There are situations where the performance of ESX when used with PlateSpin products can be improved. Especially in the case of hostd issues on the ESX server.


Modify the following settings on the ESX server:

1. Set SOAP session limit to 1000 (vs. default 100)

2. Set Console OS memory reservation to 800 MB (vs. default 272 MB)

3. Set COW MaxHeapSize to 192 MB (vs. default 32 MB)
