Ticket #8175 (new defect)
GUI is very slow when running it via an ssh tunnel (was kind of fast for 3.2.12)

Description (last modified by frank) (diff)
I used to administer a VirtualBox host via a remote ui (VirtualBox) tunneled through a slow ssh tunnel (it is a WAN connection basically). For 3.2.12, this worked reasonably well. For 4.0.2, it doesn't work at all. You'll have to wait minutes, before the UI appears on the screen. Afterwards, it is not responsive at all. All of this is based on Ubuntu-10.04 of course.
At first, I thought the screen preview feature of the new ui causes these issues. So I disabled it using
$ VBoxManage setextradata global "GUI/DetailsPageBoxes" "general,system,display,storage,audio,network,usb,sharedFolders"
Unfortunately, no improvement. I'm going to measure the amount of data transfered over the ssh tunnel next and I'll attach my findings to the ticket.
Best regards + many thanks, Uli
