Login VSI from Login VSI, Inc. is the industry-standard tool for testing VDI environments and Remote Desktop Session Host (RDSH) environments.
Login VSI installs a standard collection of desktop application software (for example, Microsoft Office and Adobe Acrobat Reader) on each VDI desktop. It then uses launcher systems to connect a specified number of users to available desktops within the environment. When the user is connected, a login script starts the workload, configures the user environment, and starts the test script. Each launcher system can launch connections to several VDI desktops (target machines). A centralized management console configures and manages the launchers and the Login VSI environment.
In addition, we used the following login and boot paradigm:
- Users were logged in within a login timeframe of one hour, except when testing low-density solutions such as GPU/graphic-based configurations, in which users were logged in every 10 to 15 seconds.
- All desktops were started before users logged in.
- All desktops ran an industry-standard anti-virus solution. Windows 10 machines used Windows Defender.
