        I'd like to 2nd this post.  I'll try the tweaks mentioned here, but the reality is, unless you use the web client via RDP ON the actual vCenter server, it's super slow.  Is it usable?  Of course.  But is if frustrating that a clunky old thick-client is considerably faster?  Absolutely.  I'm not saying that the web client is the wrong direction to go, in fact I wholly agree that moving to a platform agnostic browser-based management tool is a must.  However given how many amazing developers VMWare has on staff, I'm really surprised this ended up being a considerably -slower- solution.  The facts are indisputable - same PC, same network, chose your favorite browser - The thick-client is -always- faster than this "next gen" Web UI.  Always, I have yet to see an exception. 

         

        For a customer-satisfaction perspective, that's a tough pill to swallow.  "We're no longer supporting the fast thick-client you've built your IT Ops Team around, please use this new feature rich Web UI that takes (literally) 100% longer to do the exact same tasks".

         

        Super frustrating.

                    Oh, ok, I didn't understand your message this way. I thought you were like "hey get a new high end Pc and stop crying".

                     

                    It's like the dev's in my office : "Dude, the server's lagging, please increase resources". When you see how they build their apps completly opposite of optimized code (sigh), it's just sad.

                     

                    I feel the same for the new vsphere UI web client.

                      hi all,

                       

                      I had the same opinion on webclient 5.1, with 5.5 it is improve.

                       

                      Few tips: Use latest Adobe Flash Player and use firefox instead of IE ( if possible).

                       

                      Install the Client Integration Plug-In in the vSphere Web Client:

                       

                      1 Click the Download the client integration plug-in link.

                      Option
                      Description

                      vSphere Web Client login page
                      a Open a Web browser and enter the URL for the vSphere Web Client.

                      b At the bottom of the vSphere Web Clientlogin page, click Download Client Integration Plug-in.


                      Guest OS Details panel
                      a Select a virtual machine in the inventory and click the Summary tab.

                      b In the Guest OS Details panel, click Install client integration plug-in to view VM console.



                      2 (Optional) If the browser blocks the installation, either by issuing certificate errors or with pop-up blocking, follow the Help instructions for your browser to resolve the problem.

                        Hi all

                         

                        Was having the same issue.. it's taken two weeks to pin-point the problem ..not cool !

                         

                        Here i the solution : Un-install the web client completely then re-install it.

                        there is no visible indicator given anywhere that the client is out of date.

                         

                        Good luck ..I hope it helps :-)

                        Here's my other post describing the solution (and the problems)

                          Hi,

                           

                          I encounter this problem while I'm installing my first ESXi host running VMware 6.5 update01. It's a fresh and new installation on a customer site with no access to internet.

                           

                          For the moment only the ESXi hosts are installed and connected to the network, so I have no vCenter installed yet.

                           

                          I'm in the process to create the different vSwitches, Port Groups etc... connected directly on the hosts itself.

                           

                          So it's so slow that I sometimes wait for several minutes to get a page and I often get timeouts.

                           

                          How to get rid of this ? Is it possible to install the VMware-ClientIntegrationPlugin or to configure something to get improvement with the html5 interface?

                           

                          Thanks in advance for the help.

                           

                          Patrick
