Hi,

I am trying to get LoginVSI 4.04 to work on an English XenApp 6.5 with the French MUI pack installed. I have also Office 2003 SP3 French on the system.

Login VSI Version: 4.04
Test system: XenApp 6.5
Operating system version target: Windows 2008 R2
Operating system version launcher(s): Windows 2008 R2
Office version target: Office 2003 SP3

I am using the patch and language settings provided by Omar (see attached) that I had to customize for Outlook.

I am still facing 4 issues :
1) VSINotepad hangs on the Open file dialog but this will timeout and the test will continue
2) Excel will hang and return the attached error (excelerror.jpg), causing LoginVSI test to stop
3) Printing tests are important to my tests, however the languagesettings.csv only have one Print option but in French this can be either "Imprimer" (from Office 2003) or "Impression" (from VSINotepad)
4) VSIBase seems pretty high if I compare with the values from the different demo videos I found on the website. (XenApp VM has 4 vCPU, 8Gb RAM, local SAS 10K storage). As a consequence, simulating 30 users return a bad score...


for issue number 3, I was able to workaround it by using notepad.exe and rename it vsinotepad.exe as notepad.exe use the same API as MSOffice and the Print dialog box shows "Imprimer".
But the printing will be stuck later on FreeMind which Java runtime will display a "Impression" dialogbox. I was wondering if it could be possible to add another entry in the languagesettings.csv but I could not find the proper location in the medium workload where the Freemind print operation happens.

Any thoughts ?

What our customers are saying

Johnny Blizzard - Health Insurance Organization

"We now have indisputable empirical proof supporting our claims. With Login VSI, we can run our own applications against various hardware platforms before we move to production! Application owners can see how their code impacts their users on our systems and we can present our findings to management for funding increases. We can also advocate for the users when supporting their claims of poor performance, all because of Login VSI."

Johnny Blizzard, Sr. IT Systems Engineer at a Health Insurance Organization


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


Chris Gebhardt - NetApp

“We use Login VSI to make sure that what we are recommending to our customers is much better than what their guesses are. Because if you don't do proper assessment and if you don’t use Login VSI, your architecture is just a guess.”

Chris Gebhardt, Senior Technical Marketing Engineer at NetApp
