Profile Management – Part 3

In this part, I will test the three different solutions I covered in the first two parts of the blog series. The tests will be performance tests, but I will also cover what the profiles contain of information. I will also show you the configuration I have used for each solution so you can do your own tests if you want to. Before I get into the details I want to thank FSLogix and LoginVSI for their help and support with these tests and ControlUp for their free tool called App Profiler.

I will be doing two tests on each solution, one test with a single user on the server and one where I use LoginVSI to simulate a user load on the XenApp server. LoginVSI will use the knowledge worker 1 cpu profile and load 5 users onto the XenApp server. The tests will be showing login times for a user that is using Outlook 2016 connected to Office365, it will also show the application launch time by using ControlUp App Profiler. I will be doing 10 logins per test and use the average time in the comparison. For all solutions, the first login will be both creating of the profile and start of Outlook will be with configuration of the account. I will let Outlook sync the mails it needs to at the first start of Outlook. For MS Roaming and Citrix UPM I have set the sync interval for 1 month of mail whereas FSLogix will contain the entire mailbox.

My XenApp server is running on XenServer and it has 4 vCPU and 8GB RAM. The image for all three solutions is from PVS and it is the same image booting all three XenApp servers. If you would like more details on my test setup please let me know.
