Good morning

I am completely new to Login VSi so this may have been covered before although I cannot find anything similar searching the Forum. I am looking to perform a Load test of a XenApp 7.6 environment with 2000 users. I have built 4 Data servers and 100 Launchers in preparation and everything seems to work when I test with a low number of users (10 or 20). If I then increase the test to around 50 users or more I see all the sessions start but only around half Logon.

After some testing, I have found if I manually logon to the Launchers rather than using the Workflow, nearly all the sessions start but I still see a lot do not become active. In the Logs, there are a lot of screen shots with Black screens, nothing else.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Hi Chris,

Please have a look at the following blogpost of my colleague:

It describes possible causes for black screens. If you can't find the cause you can always send us the raw data for this test. You can find the raw data in the VSIshare. Under _VSI_Logfiles you will find folders for every test you have ran. Please zip the entire folder corresponding to this test and send it to support@loginvsi.com.

Many thanks for the quick reply. I have read through the article and there does not appear to be anything which could be the cause in this situation. I am ensuring there is a Max of 25 connections per Launcher as I am using ICA. No screen saver policy is in place and the entire network is in an isolated Lab environment.

I have emailed the Logs to you at the above email address.

Many thanks

What our customers are saying

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.”

Tristan Todd, EUC Architect at VMware

Kelly Murphy - Gridstore

"Ultimately, VDI is about performance. If a customer's virtual experience is not as fast as the physical experience, they don’t use it. Login VSI is great in helping us to really quantify and to show performance, to test systems and design those systems in such a way to ensure that you can deliver that kind of performance."

Kelly Murphy, CTO and Founder at HyperGrid

Maarten Bruijnesteijn - PPG

"We are using Login VSI for hardware scaling. By testing the number of users that can run on our environment, we know the amount of hardware that we will need upfront. We also use Login VSI in our production acceptance process to test changes to the system to evaluate changes to the environment."
