I am using 4.1.2 and have been running tests for a while now, but all of a sudden my tests started failing before time was up. When it reads 30 mins remaining until logoff command issued, the page just stops and reads test is finished click to reload. All I did was change my workload type from Officeworker to Medium. Is there something that can just make it stop? Almost like a license limit is hit. And each time, i login to the XenDesktop delivery controller there are 30 active sessions. Somehow, it logs in 30 sessions then quits.

Jeff,

Can you reproduce this issue? In general this can happen when a previous test was aborted but the launchers were not restarted. You can diagnose this by looking at the \\server\vsishare\_VSI_Logfiles\YOURTESTNAME folder. Is there a Logoff.txt file in there? If not then the helper executable running from a previous session has likely ended the wrong test.

I can reproduce and just have since I created this post. Like clockwork at 29-30 sessions it died. Yes, the logoff.txt is in the location you mentioned. The only thing I changed was moving it from a officeworker to a medium workload then to a task worker.

Is there a way to enable better logging to see what is happening? Ive just run two more attempts and they both failed when they hit 24 active sessions. The 'estimated time remaining' was around 29 mins, then all of a sudden, it goes to 00:00:00 and I get the "test is finished click reload" thing at the bottom of the page. What could cause a test to just keep disappearing? I even watched the file share to see the ACTIVETEST file disappear too.

Jeff,

Do you restart launchers between restarting tests? Lingering instances of helper.exe on the launchers will cause this.

You should also have a look at the launcher logs as found in %temp%\vsi on the launchers. Send us an email with the raw data for one of these tests as found in \\server\vsishare\_VSI_Logfiles\yourtestname. Also send us the launcher logs from the first and last launcher in your launcher list. You can send the logs to support@loginvsi.com with a reference to this forum topic.

Dennis,

Yes I do reboot every time, but I think your message led me to the issue. I was using 10 launchers for my test and for this test I moved to 8 launchers. I disabled the 2 launchers I didn't want to use in the Console, but didn't reboot them after the last test they were used in. Either way, this morning I shutdown all launchers that were not in use, rebooted the ones that were and ran a successful test. Still had 47 stuck sessions out of the 200 user test so that's still an issue, but the test shutting down early appears to be resolved.

"Login VSI has empowered us to make more informed decisions on releasing a new vDisk which we now do on a monthly basis. We have found that Login VSI tests can also flag other issues in our environment that may not be picked up by our standard User Testing which allows us to either make the appropriate changes to the vDisk or workload script adjustments to run successful tests. This has given us peace of mind and allows us to release VDI’s with confidence."

"The primary goal of our VDI appliances is to simplify and to take the guesswork out of VDI, and the Login VSI tests help us to do that from a performance expectation capability. When we offer one of our appliances to our customers, we deliver benchmarks that are validated using multiple Login VSI workloads. When compared to a customer’s workload, these Login VSI-enabled benchmarks allow precise sizing estimations to be created."
