How many snapshots can be removed concurrently in vCenter6.0?

Hi guys,

Can anyone help to know that how many snapshots can be removed concurrently in vCenter6.0?

Is there a maximum threshold for the snapshot deleting task?

And will remove_snapshot_task impact the performance?

Welcome to the Community,

the maximum supported number of snapshots in a chain is 32.

For details see e.g. Best practices for using snapshots in the vSphere environment (1025279) | VMware KB

Hello,

Maximum 32 snapshots will support, I think you can delete all at same time. But while deleting what option you choose and where is your Goto point. Please refer the below link to understand VMware snapshot deletion & Revert.

VMware vSphere 5.1

VMware vSphere 4 - ESX and vCenter Server
