Chakravarty created the topic: Load testing with Citrix xenapp 6.5.
My objective is to perform load testing using LoginVSI tool, on Citrix Xenapp 6.5 server with our product installed in that machine. I downloaded loginVSI express which is a trial version. LoginVSI express access the published desktop itself and then execute pre-defined operations as per medium workload with applications like like word , excel, outlook, pdf etc. which are installed in Xenapp server.

This is different than how we access xenapp and test our product. Each individual published application is accessed and specific operations are executed manually.

If I want the same way of accessing applications and perform load testing and i would need LoginVSI Pro version.

There is a opinion among some engineers that from load factor \ performance point of view both ways of accessing applications have no much difference because ultimately its application at the server which is accessed and stressed. So if this opinion is correct then we would not need pro license and and could get load testing numbers with express ( trial version ) license.

Is this opinion correct ?

Hi Chakravarty,

LoginVSI does not allow/provide to benchmark 'published' applications and therefore we suggest to 'publish' these applications within a 'published' desktop and hit the same idea/concept.

So, Correct; but LIMITED to 50 Express users.

Let me know if you need more information.

What our customers are saying

Shaun Donaldson - Bitdefender

"As a software vendor, the reason that we became a Login VSI customer is that we wanted to see how we compared to our competitors. After talking to VMware and Citrix about how they test their products, it became clear to me that we needed to follow our strategic partners and be able to show how our product compares favorably to our competitors. We just completed a round of tests using Login VSI and you will see white papers showing performance data."

Shaun Donaldson, Alliances Director at Bitdefender

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
