Virtualization Practice podcast about Login PI for DaaS and VDI
A couple weeks ago I was invited to participate in the Virtual Thoughts podcast. I chatted with cloud analyst Ed Haletky (@Texiwill) about Login VSI / Login PI and where the product idea came from and some of the cool use cases people are using Login PI for.
You can find the podcast here:
Some of the things we talk about in the video:
- Where did the name Login PI come from?
- What is Login VSI? What does it do? How does it work?
- What’s different about a synthetic user vs a drone user?
- What’s the benefit of Login VSI’s predefined workloads?
- What is VSImax, and how is it calculated?
- What’s the difference between Login VSI and Login PI? When should I use one or the other?
- How does Login PI monitor the production environment?
- What’s different about measuring user experience vs collecting other performance metrics?
- What kinds of things can Login PI monitor and alert on?
- What improvements are coming in Login PI?
- What platforms does Login PI work with? What about DaaS offerings?
- Can I customize Login PI workloads with other apps?
- Can I measure 3D graphics apps or GPU usage with Login VSI or Login PI?
During the video Edward sums up the added benefit of Login PI pretty good: “End-user experience is the key. It’s not just about the raw numbers, a load time of ½ seconds might be alright, but when it’s 3 seconds your users will start complaining. Login PI is going to let you know what the end-users are experiencing”
