Conquering Rogue Application Behavior in a Terminal Server Environment
Using Application Shaping to ensure reliable, consistent performance and application response times for improved end-user satisfaction
Terminal server environments offer numerous benefits including more centralized management of computing resources, wider access to user applications, and greater data security. However, these environments don’t come without their own challenges. IT departments are tasked with meeting the performance needs of many users now sharing computing resources.
Every application that each user is running must share the CPU resources of the server on which they are running. Sometimes applications “go rogue” by consuming too many CPU resources. When this happens, all of the users experience sluggish response times and IT administrators must spend time troubleshooting and correcting the issue.
Fortunately, there are software solutions that address the problem of rogue applications. Only one solution combines multiple approaches to optimize application performance and maximize CPU resource utilization. RTO Software’s TScale® solution offers Application Shaping™ which automates affinity assignments, application priority changes, and CPU load balancing to provide IT administrators with pinpoint application control. With Application Shaping, TScale gives you the tools to overcome problems associated with rogue applications and provide consistent and reliable application performance and responsiveness even during peaks in application demands.
