  • The Event database performance in VMware Horizon View 6.0.x is extremely slow when browsing within Horizon View.
  • There is high CPU usage on the SQL server, hosting the Event database.
  • The larger the Event database becomes, the slower the queries run.


This issue occurs because a table in the Horizon View Event database has no index. As a result, searches become very slow due to a table scan being done.


To resolve this issue, create an index:

To create an index:
  1. Run this command on your SQL Event database:

    CREATE INDEX IX_eventid ON dbo.VDIevent_data (eventid)

    Substitute VDIevent_data for the table name using your Event database prefix.
