How to view more vCenter Tasks & Events ?

When we are troubleshooting anything in vCenter we always first look at Tasks & Events of the vCenter Server. Because it will give you the list of which events & tasks occurred in environment. By default vSphere Windows Client shows less Tasks & Events so in this post I will show you how you can increase the value of Tasks & Events shown.

View More vCenter Tasks & Events :-

Step 1:
Login to vSphere Client.



Step 2:
Click on Edit Menu.
Choose “Client Settings”.



Step 3:
Choose Lists Tab.
In the First Option Tasks & Events you can see the default Page Size is 100.
You can Increase it to 1000 max.
Click OK to save & close.



Now you can have 1000 events & tasks shown in the Tasks & Events so you can see the more Tasks and Events on each vSphere Objects.
