how many concurrent clone tasks can vserver do at max ?

i am starting a lot of clone operations and but they seem to make progress only one at a time.

anyway to increase the concurrency ? any knobs i can turn ?

This along with other maximums are documented in the vSphere Configuration Maximums - http://www.vmware.com/pdf/vsphere4/r40/vsp_40_config_max.pdf

Take a look at page 8

Concurrent provisioning operations per host 8(1)

Concurrent provisioning operations per datastore 8(1)

Concurrent VMotion operations per host 2(2)

Concurrent VMotion operations per VMFS3 datastore 4(2)

Concurrent Storage VMotion operations per host 22

Concurrent Storage VMotion operations per datastore 4

Concurrent operations per vCenter Server 96

1. Configurable, provisioning operations include clone, relocate.

2. Configurable.

As you can see the first two around provisioning are not configurable
