Login AT makes compatibility testing reliable, affordable & standardized

Lower cost of operation dramatically through fully automated testing of large numbers of applications. Leveraging the virtual user technology from Login VSI.

Large organizations may have hundreds or more applications running on their Microsoft Windows platform. Prudent organizations require a compatibility test for every application after every upgrade or other change in the relevant infrastructure (hardware and software).

With the flow of software changes growing constantly, the need for application compatibility verification grows accordingly. To cope with the challenge to keep all applications working after every change done, organizations relied on costly and inconsistent “testing armies” or on traditional software tools such as AppDNA, considered hard to use and often unreliable.

Introducing Login AT for Application Compatibility Testing

  • Login AT is a Login VSI virtual user-based software solution to automatically health-check large numbers of applications (application compatibility)
  • Login AT automatically starts all available applications and verifies that they start successfully (using first screen comparison)
  • Login AT replaces labor-intensive manual checking of applications before/after releases of new Vdisks/images, or any other potentially compatibility disturbing change
  • Login AT works well in any type of Windows environment, physical or virtual

Login AT top 5 advantages:

  • Reduce cost of compatibility testing dramatically
  • Increase your test frequency through automation
  • Improve your test outcomes (over manual testing)
  • Centralize and standardize reporting (over manual testing)
  • Handle different starting pages by “Learning” application idiosyncrasies

Test large numbers of applications in four simple steps

  • Creating lists of application to be tested and logically organizing them in ‘recipes’ is very easy (application binaries do not need to be imported/installed in VA). Recipes are groups of applications one can organize by role, department, geography or other.
  • As a baseline, a screenshot is made of every application after startup, which is then stored in a database for reference. This step is needed only once for every application.
  • After every change that needs verification, Login AT automatically checks all applications. In every test, every application is automatically started, and a screenshot is made and compared with the initial screenshot in the database, so to verify successful startup.
  • A dashboard shows a ‘match’ or ‘fail’ report for each ‘recipe’ and for each individual application. Necessary mitigation efforts are now easy to focus on the right applications.

Login PI for Continuity Testing



Protect the performance and availability of centralized virtual desktop environments

The Login PI continuity testing solution uses a single synthetic user running 24/7, to monitor and to safeguard the optimal performance and availability of your own (or outsourced) virtual desktop infrastructure and associated business applications.

Login PI continuity testing is part of the Login VSI Enterprise Edition (EE), the complete solution for proactive end-user experience optimization and protection for VDI & DaaS, and is using the same virtual user technology as the Login VSI load-testing solution.

Login PI tests, measures, and alerts you on every change that affects the performance of desktop and application logons, as well as the actual processing of tasks-in-an-application. Login PI also provides information about protocol latency and network performance.

Login PI continuity testing complements traditional VDI monitoring

The pro-active synthetic monitoring of Login PI complements traditional monitoring solutions that may already be in place. Traditional monitoring solutions are very useful to fix problems quickly, but are reactive, infrastructure focused, work with inconsistent real users and only function during business hours. Login PI is proactive, end-user experience oriented, uses very consistent virtual users, works 24/7 and prevents problems.

Reasons to use Login PI:

  • Easy to install and use: Login PI uses standard Windows-based hardware
  • Vendor agnostic: Login PI works with all SBC, VDI, and DaaS (and even fat clients)
  • Industry workloads: Login PI has a library of industry specific workloads
  • Easy customization: Workloads can be easily adapted or fully customized
  • Standalone use: Login PI comes with a full dashboard, reports and alerts
  • Integrated use: Login PI integrates with classic monitoring solutions and BI tools
  • DevOps ready: The virtual user of Login PI and Login VSI supports the entire cycle

How Login PI benefits your business:

  • 24/7 pro-active monitoring and management of user experience
  • Guaranteeing (customer and employee) application availability
  • The detection/prediction of performance impact of unplanned changes
  • 24/7 verification of user experience at different remote locations
  • Checking the adherence to SLA’s with providers of cloud-based services
  • Protecting the user experience of Bloomberg and other applications

Robust dashboards, data integration and reporting

The Login PI dashboard, provides a current health status, along with the application user experience versus threshold levels, network latency trending, and much more. Login PI alerts are published to Windows Event Logs, for easy data integration with management and monitoring solutions, such as Splunk!, SCOM and HP OpenView. Login PI has a REST web API for data integration with BI-tools such as Excel, Power BI, Tableau and Qlik.

Login AM: Automate the Creation and Updating of Master Images

With Login AM, IT Administrators can save time and money on the management of their master images by completely automating the creation and update process. Login AM breaks apart the different actions of building a desktop image so that updates, new application installs, and operating system optimizations aren’t lost or redone each time these images are modified. With the increasing pace of OS and application updates, you can focus on just changing that one piece and let Login AM completely build your images using the same settings for everything else each time. With Login AM, you never have to build a complete desktop image from scratch again.

Accelerate time to value

Thanks to Login AM, IT administrators can quickly apply any changes to images with the highest quality possible. Since Login AM has been in the market for over 10 years, it has proven to save costs and accelerate time to value.

Benefits

  • Autonomy: One solution for everything needed to deploy and maintain a virtual desktop environment
  • Rapid Automation: An easy-to-use interface and well defined tasks make automating a test lab faster than documenting it
  • Ultra-Small Footprint: Automating the set-up process of any deployment system to eliminate inefficiencies
  • Full scope: Automates every aspect of test labs for a complete hands-off experience
  • Blueprints: Turn automated test labs into reusable, sharable blueprints
  • Extensible: Got an API? Add custom-made extensions for the unique needs of your organization
  • Start Small: Start with the most important pieces first and extend later. The low overhead of Login AM makes almost any automated step worth the effort, no matter how small

Automate changes and manual tasks

Frequent changes to VDI, Citrix XenApp or Microsoft RDS environments are common for IT administrators and organizations. Updates, changing end user requirements and deployment of new applications require many manual tasks that are repetitive in nature. Manual updates cause human errors and server configuration fragmentation leads to complex troubleshooting and recurring incidents.

In complex virtual desktop environments it is even more important to stay in control and maintain a predictable end user experience. To be able to deliver a high quality service in a 24/7 environment it is essential to automate changes to the highest degree possible. This improves the quality of service and saves time and money resolving incidents resulting from incorrect updates. It also allows to easily set up identical test environments on demand, eliminating the need to maintain these costly environments. Login AM enables this, with just a click of a button.

Quick response to change

Login AM allows IT administrators to fully automate day-to-day deployment and configuration tasks quickly and easily. It focuses on the ever increasing need of IT organizations to be flexible and quick to respond to any kind of change and business demand while keeping the quality of the services up to the high standards the business has come to rely on.

Flexible and lightweight solution

The design of Login AM closely follows this idea and aims to enable flexibility through a lightweight architecture based on a non-intrusive Microsoft PowerShell module and file based database that is implemented using XML. The basic setup of the Login AM installation consists of a Login AM server that holds the file-based database, and the user interface to create and configure Login AM instances. As the complete configuration of Login AM is stored in a single file share, daily management tasks like backup become relatively straightforward, without the need for any additional costly components.

Login AM manages and automates:

  • Automated creation and maintenance of images including applications and configurations
  • Software deployment
  • On-demand system configuration
  • System and application hardening
  • Instant creation and maintenance of test and (user) acceptance environments
  • Citrix XenDesktop, VMware Horizon and Microsoft RDS application publication
  • Citrix XenDesktop, VMware Horizon and Microsoft RDS farm creation
  • User environment and profile on virtual desktop environments

Login VSI Storage Workload: The ultimate proof of VDI storage performance

The Login VSI Storage Workload is designed to simulate, test and benchmark storage systems with a VDI workload, using a real VDI server infrastructure, real desktop sessions with real applications and data access.

The Login VSI Storage Workload is built on industry-standard workloads and helps storage solution vendors to find the maximum capacity of their offering for virtualized desktop environments. Whether you need to know storage capacity for internal testing, R&D, technical marketing, or a proof of concept to support an enterprise sale, storage vendors run into the usual bottlenecks—CPU and memory before saturating storage. With the Login VSI Storage Workload, storage vendors can finally max out their platform without worrying about other factors and reach an understanding of their true storage performance using industry standard measurements.

The Login VSI Storage Workload offers:

  • Real IOPS, by using realistic data, real applications, real infrastructure and minimal synthetic disk IO load
  • Significantly higher IOPS than the regular Login VSI workloads with a similar CPU and memory profile
  • There is no need for a large launcher infrastructure because the Storage Workload runs in Direct Desktop Mode

90% fewer launchers required

The Login VSI Storage Workload does not require a large launcher infrastructure. This saves you time and expense for running tests. For example, when running a 1,500 user VDI test (+/- 10 server blades), you will need 90% fewer launchers (see table below).

 Login VSI Office WorkerLogin VSI Storage Workload
Desktop VMs 1500 1500
IOPS per user 6-8 25-30
Launchers (VMs) 40 2

Max out your IOPS

The Login VSI Storage Workload generates at least 200% more disk IOPS in comparison with an Office Worker workload during a Login VSI test (where test users gradually log on), and even 300% more IOPS in a steady state test, but requires the same CPU resources as a normal user. In some cases IOPS go up by 500% depending on your test platform.

IO comparison

The following graph shows IO profile comparison between the Office Worker and the Storage Workload, measured with 150 sessions started in 48 minutes. 150 sessions were started. These tests were performed with all non-critical services disabled. Write-intensive services like indexing or antivirus will significantly impact the IO profile.

Note the dip in CPU Utilization and IOs during the end of the test in the storage workload. This happens because the tested storage solution has reached its limit in this test around 140 users. Because of this, the desktop and applications stop responding. Typically, you want to avoid this scenario in regular validation tests.

storage workload average commands sec

Important Note

Before a large-scale storage test is performed with the Login VSI Storage Workload, first determine the VSImax with a Login VSI Office Worker on a single server. By figuring out what the regular VSImax is first, you can prevent a server overloading on CPU or memory by configuring too many storage users. With the Storage Workload, it is possible to determine the maximum amount of storage sessions that should be started on each server in a large-scale test, without hitting CPU or memory bottlenecks.

Note: The Login VSI Storage Workload is designed to validate VDI storage requirements and is not designed for Microsoft Remote Desktop Services or Citrix XenApp scenarios.

Login VSI Multimedia Workload: Proving the benefits of GPUs for VDI and SBC environments

Personal devices are becoming more and more equipped with hardware that can offload the processor from graphically intensive tasks and the applications that leverage that compute power are continuing to demand more. As you move into the enterprise, those workspaces are centralized, but the expectations of the end users do not change. With Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) becoming more pervasive in VDI and SBC solutions there are lots of questions about how much the addition of these devices will change the end-user experience and how this changes the sizing and cost of the solution.

Ultimately, if the hosted applications and desktops provide an equal or better experience to the physical machines being used today, the more likely it will be that the solution will be adopted by the general community and even more importantly, will make them more productive.

What is it?

The new Multimedia Workload for Login VSI is intended to provide the type of information necessary for successfully scaling solutions leveraging GPUs to deliver the best end-user experience. With the Multimedia Workload the virtual user will use a number of contemporary and graphically intensive applications that are commonly used by most end-users including Google Chrome, graphically heavy HTML 5 websites, Microsoft PowerPoint with high resolution transitions, 1080p videos, dragging windows, navigating between multiple applications, Google Earth, and more. All of this is intended to put more pressure on the GPU to understand the relationship between it and the CPU.

Why do you need it?

There are a lot of different technologies available now that will enhance the digital workspace through added processing power. With the Multimedia Workload you can now run real-world workloads that will allow you to understand the difference between GPUs, GPU configurations, remoting protocol settings and application demand at scale.

What does it cost?

It is FREE for existing Login VSI customers and any trial customers.

Use this virtual user to cause the media rich apps to use that GPU, or see what the impact would at least be on the CPU for software rendering.

Login PI Active Monitoring

Protect the performance and availability of centralized virtual desktop environments

The Login PI active monitoring solution uses a single synthetic user running 24/7, to monitor and to safeguard the optimal performance and availability of your own (or outsourced) virtual desktop infrastructure and associated business applications.

Login PI active monitoring is part of the Login VSI Enterprise Edition (EE), the complete solution for proactive end-user experience optimization and protection for VDI & DaaS, and is using the same virtual user technology as the Login VSI load-generator solution.

Login PI tests, measures, and alerts you on every change that affects the performance of desktop and application logons, as well as the actual processing of tasks-in-an-application. Login PI also provides information about protocol latency and network performance.

Login PI active synthetic monitoring complements traditional VDI monitoring

The active monitoring of Login PI complements traditional monitoring solutions that may already be in place. Traditional monitoring solutions are very useful to fix problems quickly, but are reactive, infrastructure focused, work with inconsistent real users and only function during business hours. Login PI is proactive, end-user experience oriented, uses very consistent virtual users, works 24/7 and prevents problems.

Robust dashboards, data integration and reporting

The Login PI dashboard, provides a current health status, along with the application user experience versus threshold levels, network latency trending, and much more. Login PI alerts are published to Windows Event Logs, for easy data integration with management and monitoring solutions, such as Splunk!, SCOM and HP OpenView. Login PI has a REST web API for data integration with BI-tools such as Excel, Power BI, Tableau and Qlik.
