Consultants today announced the new Client Side Performance Testing
module for Login VSI, the industry standard benchmarking tool for SBC
and VDI environments. This new module allows performance testers to
objectively measure and analyze the performance of remoting protocols
such as VMware PCoIP, Citrix ICA/HDX, Microsoft RDP, Quest EOP and
The existing test suite Login VSI 3.5 provides
valuable information about the maximum number of sessions that can be
handled by the servers in the datacenter. By adding performance testing
on the protocol level, this new module introduces full end-to-end
measurement of the user experience in desktop virtualization
The new Client Side Performance Testing module
will be included as an option in Login VSI Pro 3.6. The Beta version of
this new module will be available without additional cost to all current
Login VSI Pro customers with active support. Definitive pricing for
this optional module for new and existing customers, will be announced
"Login VSI already provided valuable information about the maximum number of sessions by simulating typical office workloads
" said Mark Plettenberg, product manager of Login VSI. "The
introduction of Client Side Performance Testing will further help
increase the end-user performance by gaining insight into the response
time, the capacity of the Wide Area Network (WAN), the effect of
different remote protocols and WAN acceleration solutions
The Client Side Performance Testing module can now be used to perform these tests:
- Character response - How long does it take to press a key on the keyboard and return it onscreen via protocol?
- Large text response - How long does it take to show a large block of text onscreen via protocol?
- Mouse click feedback - How long does it take to register and handle a mouse click within the remoting session?
quality and loading times - How long does it take to show a complex
image onscreen via protocol? This image has been specifically designed
to measure quality and speed of different protocols in an independent
This new module of Login VSI adds value in the following testing scenarios (and more):

if we increase the number of users on a single server- or pool of
servers? What is the impact of responsiveness of protocol on client
- If we switch from Server Side to Client Side rendering,
what is the impact on bandwidth consumption and therefore protocol
- What is the real effect of WAN accelerators on response time at the endpoint (no caching = realistic results)?
