We are working on a demo/POC of this software with our XenApp environment. Right now we are encountering an issue when trying to run our first test. Current status (using Launcher workflow option in test setup), when attempting to start the test from the Controller we get an error message stating that the Launcher is offline or Firewalled. I verified it was not firewalled and all three servers are able to communicate with each other (same subnet, port 80 open for XML). If we do not use the Launcher workflow, the Launcher check stays in waiting phase indefinitely.

All of the online instructions are for RDP, and there doesn't seem to be very many intuitive help capabilities. Anyone have an idea of what might be causing this type of error?

Hi Plenau,

Using Launcher Workflow is really helpful when you have a batch of Launcher present (it makes life easier).
I suggest to not use the Launcher Workflow for now, until we get you up/running with the tool.

Also you are mixing two things up. You are talking about your Launcher and also your Targets.
"(same subnet, port 80 open for XML)" The Launcher are _not_ your targets, please keep that in mind.

You mentioned if you not use Launcher Workflow that the Launcher check 'always stays in waiting phase'. Few verify steps

Start a test, follow the start test wizard till the point were we need to wait for the launcher and follow step 1:

1- logon to the launcher machine manually and launch \\server\vsishare\_VSI_Binaries\launcher\agent.exe
2- make sure that the Launcher user has write/read access on the VSIshare.

The Launcher should become active now.

Please keep me posted, thanks.

Hello Omar,

Do you have any instructions/Documentation for running a Citrix Xenapp test in LoginVSI? All of the documentation we can find on your site is for RDP test only. We are having difficulty figuring out what servers or users to call out during the test configuration. Thanks!

What our customers are saying

Randy Groves - Teradici

"As the developer of the PCoIP protocol, we do a lot of our own internal benchmarking to make sure that we’re continuing to improve our protocol. But we can’t actually publish our internal benchmarks because everybody might think that the tests are biased. So when we want to publish results, we use Login VSI. That way, if a customer wants to repeat our results they can.”

Randy Groves, CTO at Teradici

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

Bill Kleyman - MTM Technologies

"From the engineering perspective and from the architecture perspective, we absolutely love the technology behind Login VSI. We actually use Login VSI as a pro-active tool to help our customers understand the dynamic nature of a datacenter and the business."
