Limiting the Number of concurrent VM snapshots

Does anyone know if there is a way of reducing the amount of concurrent snapshots an ESXi 6.5 or 6.7 host can take? I think its either 8 or 12 but we'd like to limit to 4 for performance reasons on the storage end (this is for a backup POC).

Thanks

ESXi 6 will take more snapshots than any doc would allow - I have seen VMs with 200 and more ...

try

snapshot.maxSnapshots = "4"

in the vmx-file - but be prepared that that parameter may not be accepted by automatic backuptools.
