We currently use Unisphere in our environment for managing VMAXs. I find Unisphere to be very slow and prefer to use SYMCLI for provisioning tasks. I just wanted to get some feedback from other people that currently use Unisphere in their environment. Do you find Unisphere to be a very slow tool?
Thanks in advance!
Have you met the minimum hardware requirement for installing Unisphere for VMAX? Is you Unisphere for VMAX server running additional application may consume hardware resource? Generally, the GUI won't faster than CLI. But at least you feel it's slow but better to describe how show it is. For example how long will it complete single click or configuration task?
BTW, https://support.emc.com/docu47001_Unisphere-for-VMAX-1.6-Installation-Guide. P21 provide the hardware requirement for Unisphere for VMAX installation.
if you are referring to UI navigation, there is an option to in the right hand corner to "optimize for remote connection" or something of that nature. Very helpful when you connect via RDP, it stop doing all the fancy transitions when you go from screen to screen.
we have the same problem. After a new installation of Unisphere it works with good performance but after 3 or 4 weeks it will get very slow. Only a new installation of Unisphere solve this problem for some time.
The performance of Unisphere for VMAX largely depends on the host configuration (available physical RAM and disk space) and GK devices. Also on the number of concurrent users using Unisphere for VMAX. Kindly check the release notes and install guide of corresponding UNIVMAX versions to check if these are met. If you continue to face the issue past all this, i would suggest to open a support ticket.
could you please let me know what is the procedure of re-install Unisphere. i am using VNXe, accessing through Unisphere. it is working very slow, after enter the user credentials it is taking 3-4 mins to open the complete console.
i have restarted the unisphere as well. even though it is working like the same.
i just spoke with the EMC support, they adviced that to upgrade the OE code. does it really helful? my unisphere will work fast after upgrading the OE?
what is the link between OE and Unisphere?
Thanks and Best Regards,
i`ve just upgraded to latest version of Unisphere for VMAX 188.8.131.52 virtual appliance hoping to get a Faster GUI but unfortunately still awful ....
strange that only few are complaining and such subject is not getting a high attention
i would really appreciate it if anyone can share any workaround found.
Hi vRamzy, if the performance is still slow please check the RAM/Space recommendations are met as this can often to lead to performance type issues. If they are fine then please open a support case and the team can help you to collect logs and isolate the potential cause.
