Login VSI Workloads

Login VSI Workloads are a set of actions that are executed by the virtual user for a number of reasons:

  • To perform operations intended to determine a baseline performance level
  • To execute a standard set of functions that allow for an objective performance measurement of the hosted desktop or application in order to determine VSImax
  • To execute a custom set of functions that allow for the use of any Windows application to be used to measure performance and stress the system

Login VSI workloads consist of a number of different functions such as "Segments" (comprised of 5 segments), "Preparation" (which sets up the virtual user’s environment to eliminate unexpected or unwanted actions that may occur and cause the session to become stuck), "Timers" (which uses native Windows applications and operations to determine system saturation and provides Login VSI with information necessary to evaluate the user experience) and many more, which you can learn about in our downloadable white paper.

While many of the applications listed above are the same between workloads, each one, from Task Worker to Power Worker becomes increasingly aggressive while continuing to maintain the behavior of the type of user the workload is named after. One of the things that makes the workloads different in terms of their aggressiveness is how many of the applications are run concurrently, or within the workload segment (which you can learn more about in our white paper).

Login VSI workloads can be customized to add any line-of-business applications our customers wish to have the virtual users operate. In addition, Login VSI also offers a storage workload designed to stress the storage subsystem as well as a graphics framework that is designed to stress the graphics resources like CPU and GPU.

Understanding the Future of End User Computing

VDI Like a Pro conducted the fifth worldwide ‘End User Computing – State of the Union’ survey in 2018. Over the years, similar surveys were conducted in 2012, 2014, 2015 and 2017. The ‘End User Computing – State of the Union’ is truly unique because it’s unbiased, independent, powered by the community and the results are available for everyone—free of charge. The document provides valuable insights in real-world deployments, configuration and usage, both on-premises and public cloud environments, from more than 750 people who supported the survey.

Over 750 people supported the survey and on average, completed the survey in less than 13 minutes. Participants from almost 50 different countries around the globe took part in the survey, with a majority in North America. Approximately 36% of respondents were from North America and 60% from EMEA. The response is measured based on client IP address.

Topics in the survey will cover Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI), Desktop as a Service (DaaS), public cloud, security, devices, Server Based Computing (SBC), storage, hypervisors, GPUs, and the key EUC initiatives for 2019. The goal of the survey is to get a clear view on how the industry is changing and to support all involved with valuable, independent, and unbiased research results based on actual and objective customer data.

Testing VDI Performance: The Crucial Factor

VDI continues to gain popularity within the Healthcare sector. More and more desktops migrate to the cloud. While IT-organizations within healthcare roll out specialized EMR-applications, among them Epic, Cerner and McKesson, expectations of end-users in relation to desktop experiences on each device at any moment, continue to grow. IT departments within healthcare must rise to the challenge of delivering outstanding services, while reducing the complexity and costs associated with infrastructure. For end users, IT departments and businesses many issues boil down to performance.

In complex environments within healthcare, with many users sharing centralized servers, storage, software and even GPU’s, the IT department faces added difficulty offering the users the same performance they grew accustomed to on their fat clients and notebooks. When centralizing—whether the environment uses Citrix XenDesktop, Citrix XenApp, VMware Horizon View and/or Microsoft Remote Desktop Services (RDS) for application and desktop virtualization— IT departments quickly run into resource limitations leading to degraded performance. Often the root of performance problems can be averted by performance testing.

Performance testing is crucial in new desktop virtualization projects, pilots, Proofs of Concept and production phases. Because of the countless unique technology and service options to consider when undertaking a new VDI project, capacity planning and load testing the environment are essential to moving confidently into production.

The indirect value of testing makes the direct capital investments (time plus software) needed to execute testing, sometimes hard to justify. The goal of this white paper is to help all involved to better understand, and to be able to explain, the business case behind virtual desktop infrastructure testing.

Quickly Improve Performance & Availability of Crucial EMR/EHR/EPR Applications

EMR’s are mostly used within one organization, whilst EHR’s are used to share information between organizations. The term "EPR" was coined in the UK, and is comparable to the term used in the USA, "EMR". In this paper we use the term "EHR" to refer to all these three terms for efficiency and readability.

EHR’s are now commonplace worldwide. The most widely accepted benefits named by the different suppliers, can be summarized as follows:

  1. Quality: Electronic registration allows for more complete (and more readable) files
  2. Availability: Files are 24/7 available from any location
  3. Efficiency: Less medical tests duplicated through better exchange between organizations
  4. Better care: Less medical mistakes because of improved exchange between organizations

The most important suppliers of EHR-software in the United States are: Cerner, McKesson, and Epic, who have been dominating the market for years. Besides those 3 big players Allscripts, eClinicalWorks, GE Healthcare and many others are also used in hospitals.

Login VSI designed a set of application specific workloads to be used without further adjustments for synthetic testing and proactive monitoring of your own EHR-environment. These workloads are off-the-shelf available for the most common EHR vendors such as Cerner, Epic and (Dutch vendor) ChipSoft, and can be easily adapted and created for all other EHR applications.

Why take the Risk?

A poorly built and maintained VDI environment will increase the risk of performance problems among all users.
