We conducted the performance analysis and characterization testing (PAAC) on this solution using the Login VSI load-generation tool. Login VSI is an industry-standard tool for benchmarking VDI workloads. Login VSI uses a carefully designed, holistic methodology that monitors both hardware resource utilization parameters and end-user experience (EUE) during load-testing.
We tested each user load against four runs: a pilot run to validate that the infrastructure was functioning and valid data could be captured, and three subsequent runs to enable data correlation.
During testing, while the environment was under load, we logged in to a session and completed tasks that correspond to the user workload. While this test is subjective, it helps to provide a better understanding of the EUE in the desktop sessions, particularly under high load. It also helps to ensure reliable data gathering.
