The above table shows the minimum hardware requirements for Oracle VM Manager. Oracle VM Manager resource requirements can be tested with the Oracle VM Manager user interface (UI) page response times. For example, if the Oracle VM Manager user interface is or becomes painfully slow, or if you experience page timeouts, adding memory and CPUs should speed up the user interface, and eliminate page timeouts.
 
Tip: Oracle VM Manager on VMware is performance challenged and traditionally needs substantially more CPU and memory than Oracle's minimum recommendations.
