VDI benchmarking tool enhanced with Client Side Performance Testing

New module now available in Beta.

Amsterdam, March 29, 2012 - Login Consultants today announced the new Client Side Performance Testing module for Login VSI, the industry standard benchmarking tool for SBC and VDI environments. This new module allows performance testers to objectively measure and analyze the performance of remoting protocols such as VMware PCoIP, Citrix ICA/HDX, Microsoft RDP, Quest EOP and others.

The existing test suite Login VSI 3.5 provides valuable information about the maximum number of sessions that can be handled by the servers in the datacenter. By adding performance testing on the protocol level, this new module introduces full end-to-end measurement of the user experience in desktop virtualization environments.

The new Client Side Performance Testing module will be included as an option in Login VSI Pro 3.6. The Beta version of this new module will be available without additional cost to all current Login VSI Pro customers with active support. Definitive pricing for this optional module for new and existing customers, will be announced later.

“Login VSI already provided valuable information about the maximum number of sessions by simulating typical office workloads” said Mark Plettenberg, product manager of Login VSI. “The introduction of Client Side Performance Testing will further help increase the end-user performance by gaining insight into the response time, the capacity of the Wide Area Network (WAN), the effect of different remote protocols and WAN acceleration solutions”.

The Client Side Performance Testing module can now be used to perform these tests:

  • Character response – How long does it take to press a key on the keyboard and return it onscreen via protocol?
  • Large text response – How long does it take to show a large block of text onscreen via protocol?
  • Mouse click feedback – How long does it take to register and handle a mouse click within the remoting session?
  • Image quality and loading times – How long does it take to show a complex image onscreen via protocol? This image has been specifically designed to measure quality and speed of different protocols in an independent way.

This new module of Login VSI adds value in the following testing scenarios (and more):

  • What if we increase the number of users on a single server- or pool of servers? What is the impact of responsiveness of protocol on client side?
  • If we switch from Server Side to Client Side rendering, what is the impact on bandwidth consumption and therefore protocol responsiveness?
  • What is the real effect of WAN accelerators on response time at the endpoint (no caching = realistic results)?

About Login VSI
Login Virtual Session Indexer (Login VSI) is a unique tool to measure performance and scalability. Login VSI is developed specifically for vendor-independent testing of centralized desktop environments such as Server Based Computing (SBC) and Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI). Because Login VSI is a 'turn-key' performance measurement solution, it is installed within days and applicable without additional scripting.

By simulating user workloads, the tool is able to test and predict the impact of changes in hardware or software, on the performance of your SBC or VDI infrastructure. With Login VSI, you will never be surprised by unexpected performance issues. Login VSI also enables you to make objective decisions by enabling you to test different hardware and software solutions in your own environment.

Login VSI is designed to simply and quickly measure the maximum capacity of your current infrastructure. The simulated users work with the same applications as a regular employee such as Word, Excel, Outlook and Internet Explorer. You can also add custom applications to tests. Login VSI is becoming the worldwide industry standard for SBC and VDI benchmarking and is now used by key vendors such as Microsoft, Intel, Citrix, HP, Dell, IBM, Cisco, EMC, Intel and the independent VDI research project Virtual Reality Check.

Scalability testing Parallels Remote Application Server with Login VSI

Recently I went to VMworld in Barcelona where Login VSI had a booth on the expo... While I can’t remember exactly how many conversations I had - there had been so many that I lost my voice on day one. What was new this year is that quite a few people asked if our software is compatible with the solutions from Parallels specifically their Remote Application Server (RAS) (Datasheet).

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
