VDI Performance Testing: To VSImax or not to VSImax

VDI Performance Testing: To VSImax or not to VSImax

When you are performing a VDI performance test with Login VSI, the most important part of any test are the results. But the result is only valid when you have completed a successful test, because there are many factors that can influence the test result. So how to make sure that a test was run successfully? One of the misconceptions that I hear quite often is that fact that you will need to reach VSImax for a test to be considered successful. In this blog I will explain the best way to determine if a test was successful or not.

Essential VDI Performance Graphs in the Login VSI Analyzer

Essential VDI Performance Graphs in the Login VSI Analyzer

Every user of Login VSI knows the “famous” VSImax chart in the Login VSI Analyzer. This chart is used in almost every VDI white paper of the major software / hardware vendors in our industry and basically shows the maximum capacity of your virtualized desktop environment. Besides VSImax, I frequently notice that many of our customers are not very familiar with the other charts in the Login VSI Analyzer. In this blog I would like to share some charts and features of the Login VSI Analyzer that I frequently use after a performance test.

DaaS Vader - Return of the VDI SLA

DaaS Vader - Return of the VDI SLA

A long time ago, in a gal…

actually, it wasn’t a long time ago, it was right now. And it wasn’t far far away, it was right here.

Enterprises (and Empires) with virtualized desktop environments are increasingly interested in moving parts of their environments to service providers to gain more flexibility and lower the cost of change. User experience and performance will always be critical to IT departments, and Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) providers are tapping into this growing need with a way to prove they can deliver the SLAs that both sides agreed to. Whether you’re Empire or Rebel, First Order or Resistance, when user experience and performance matter the most, DaaS providers turn to tools to ensure that standards are met.

Simulating VDI Users - Introduction to Login VSI Workloads

Simulating VDI Users - Introduction to Login VSI Workloads

Most people describe Login VSI as a “load generator”, but I don't feel this actually does it justice. The main differentiator between Login VSI and other load testing solutions is the fact that Login VSI generates load on a virtualized desktop environment by using virtual users to simulate the same behavior as your real users, instead of just static load. There's much more to consider when simulating those pesky and unpredictable humans. This enables any IT department to test the real-life impact of changes on the maximum capacity of their VDI environment without having to use (and bother) their real users.

Is Windows 10 the biggest threat to VDI user experience?

Is Windows 10 the biggest threat to VDI user experience?

Let’s start with a statement that I love Windows 10, it’s a great OS and our recent #VDILIKEAPRO test results clearly illustrates this. Currently, Windows 7 is still the dominant OS in the world but in February, Windows 10 already bypassed Windows 8 / 8.1 and continues to grow (source). Participating in early releases since the days of Windows XP, I’ve become pretty accustomed to this trend though—you know the one where every other release has been pretty lackluster compared to its n-1 predecessor.
