renko created the topic: Open, Print and Search randomly slow
I have been running tests for months with the same template. It has all the normal optimizations like disabled updates, defrag and other services. The test have been running fine with expected results, e.g. slowness as session count increases.

Recently, I've started to have test where Open, Print and Search operations are collectively about 1000ms slower than expected, even with only a few sessions running. The result is consistent within a VM, when look at the raw data. For example, VM "a" with a session count of 4, will have a total response of ~980ms, but VM "b" with a session count at 5 will have a total response of ~1880ms. The difference is almost exclusively in the Open, Print and Find operations. Further a "slow" VM will remain slow throughout the duration of the test.

This seems to indicate a problem with the VM or a services perhaps that is running in one VM and not the other, but is still affecting the overall windows performance.

I am going to apply the latest patches (last month or so) for MS on my master template and reimport. In the mean time, any ideas on what I should be looking at?

What our customers are saying

Michael Bernas - Workers' Compensation Board Alberta

“We've used Login VSI for the past 3 years as part of our Disaster Recovery Exercise. It's not only helped us in validating the functionality of our Citrix XenApp farm, but it's also been an invaluable tool in proving the number of concurrent connections into the environments. It’s allowed us to take our theoretical numbers and put actual real life data behind them.”

Todd Mace - PernixData

"Login VSI has been a great partner for us. Customers use PernixData with Login VSI to help validate their user experience. Login VSI helps to see what their performance bottlenecks are and our software helps to mediate some of that. Login VSI has been a kind of defacto standard to be able to help that validation and help the customer to be able to come up with a solution to fix it."

Todd Mace, Product Manager at PernixData

Tristan Todd - VMware

“Login VSI is my favorite test orchestration and simulation tool for large-scale reference architecture testing. Not only do we use it in our testing, but we work with partners who use Login VSI exclusively, with the idea that you create the most realistic simulated workload at scale, to really test infrastructure and software capabilities. What’s more, getting the results and be able to measure yourself across platforms and across vendor solutions is just fantastic and is unequalled in the industry.”
