Sort sequence is incorrect and sorting/scrolling in the Virtual Machines tab in vCenter Server is slow (1029665)
Sorting by a column in the Virtual Machines tab in vCenter Server gets progressively slower with the number of virtual machines displayed. That is, the Datacenter level is slower than the Cluster level.
- When you scroll down in the Virtual Machines tab, a noticeably long time is taken to load the virtual machine objects.
- Sorting by Name column in the Virtual Machines tab in vCenter Server at Cluster Level or Datacenter level does not rearrange virtual machines alphabetically as expected.
Note: The Sort sequence works correctly at Host level.

Double the number in the Initial and Maximum memory pool field.
Restart the VirtualCenter Management Webservices service and the VirtualCenter Server service. For more information, see Stopping, starting, or restarting vCenter services (1003895).
Depending on your available memory, use a value that is optimal for your environment.
If you experience similar issues on a 32-bit vCenter Server (4.0), increment the maximum memory pool value in steps of 50 MB. Java acquires this pool from contiguous virtual memory and the maximum is around 1.5 GB with a normal 2 GB Kernel address space / 2 GB User address space split. If the service does not come up after the memory pool increase, reduce the value and try again.
