    Why are snapshots with memory so slow?

      Can someone please explain why snapshot with memory are so much slower than without? Snapping a 400gb vm with 8gb a ram without memory is extremely fast. Snap it with memory and it could take 15 minutes at least.


      Looking at the datastores in esx, I do not see any data being queued or io pending on the san. I just dont see where the bottleneck would be.
