Login PI v1.0 releases with fanfare

Login PI v1.0 releases with fanfare

Santa Clara, CA, April 28, 2015Login PI v1.0 is available now for IT administrators who want better insight into the performance of their production Virtualized Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) or remote desktop session (RDS) host environment. Today’s release announcement includes the availability of analyst validation, a new Hands-on Lab, and a live podcast with industry gurus Brian Madden and Gabe Knuth today at 9:30 a.m. PDT.

Login PI gives IT the advantage of understanding the current end user experience within their VDI environment by using highly realistic synthetic users instead of production end users. This synthetic user approach allows IT to stay ahead of trouble tickets. The product uses the core technology of Login VSI, the industry standard performance testing and validation software. As John Abbott of 451 Research explains, Login PI “…can be a less intrusive and more predictable way of spotting problems before users themselves notice.” (451 Research report on Login PI, March 17 2015.)

With performance insights from Login PI, IT can be more proactive and effective in delivering high availability and an excellent end user experience. Because VDI environments are so complex and interactive, troubleshooting requires a proactive approach. (Read about proactive user experience in the Gartner report, Employ Multifaceted Monitoring Approaches for Citrix XenApp and XenDesktop, by Vivek Bhalla and Jonah Kowall published Jan 16, 2014 here.)

Additionally, Login PI, especially in combination with Login VSI, helps mitigate risk for IT. User productivity failures or system downtime come at a measurable financial and operational cost. Knowing performance bottlenecks and outages in advance of end users experiencing them is critical. This operational risk must be addressed by choosing the right technology and methodology for gaining performance insights.

“Login PI represents the next step for Login VSI to provide solutions for the most challenging issues in VDI—end user experience,” says Login VSI Product Manager, Adam Carter. “This product was built from our customers’ expressed needs, and makes a real difference in the IT administrator’s ability to have performance insight and knowledge,” Carter continues.

The Login PI Hands-on Lab is available for those who want a sandbox environment to evaluate Login PI. For those who want a full experience, the 30 day free trial is available.

Scalability testing Parallels Remote Application Server with Login VSI

Windows 10 Default File Type Associations and Login VSI

When Login VSI 4.1 was released, the majority of desktops were running Windows 7 and life was easy. We’d set the default filetype for an application and it would simply work. The default and industry standard workloads in Login VSI include launching and using Adobe Reader as part of the virtual user simulation. Because Login VSI doesn’t always know which version of Adobe Reader is installed, or where it’s installed, the workload relies on the file type association (FTA) for .pdf documents to be… Continue Reading

Investigating Online Application Performance with Login PI

As many companies do, we use a CRM system. Recently, I have been getting complaints about our cloud CRM system, Microsoft Dynamics, being slow. I tried to investigate this by shadowing one of our users to see what was wrong. As expected, everything was fast. 15 minutes later, the same user reported slowness again. How could I investigate this without bothering the users? Continue Reading
