Virtualization Practice podcast about Login PI for DaaS and VDI

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

Check it out – it’s also a rare opportunity to see me rocking the Wizard beard.

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...

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
