XenDesktop 7.5 Optimization Help Needed
Posted on 2014-12-19
Hello EE Community!
We have a test XenDesktop 7.5 environment that we are about to roll out into production and need to 'tweak' a few things to make it 'perfect' for the big rollout day.
Can you please make some recommendations on HDX or master image optimizations in order to help the XD7.5 environment run smoothly? (i.e.- video playback, no mouse or window dragging jitter, quick response times, etc.)
-Mostly plain vanilla deployment through PVS 7.1 and XD 7.5.
-End users are connecting over the 1GBps LAN (servers in the same building) using Windows fat clients or WYSE terminals. We are using server side rendering for video/flash playback.
-VMware ESXi 5.1
Windows 7 Enterprise
128MB video RAM
40GB C drive
- Video playback is non-existent on WYSE terminals. We just get a black static screen where there should be video.
- Internally on the LAN - Video playback on a Windows fat client is ok until we put it in HD and make it full screen. We then get jitter and frame skipping in Chrome. It won't play in Internet Explorer at all.
- Externally through Netscaler 10 - The entire image is super slow. Clicking on a program to open takes triple the time to open than when opened in the LAN. Very sluggish and laggy.
Let me know if you need any other info. Thanks for the help!
