Successfully predict, validate and manage the performance of centralized virtualized desktop environments
Login VSI makes it easy to benchmark, load test and plan capacity for even the most complex virtualized desktop environments. Because end-user experience and productivity are key in any digital workspace environment, Login VSI tests performance via virtual users, so as not to affect real-user productivity.
With Login VSI, you can gain performance insights that enable you to:
- Predict the performance impact of necessary updates and upgrades
- Know the maximum user capacity of your current infrastructure
- Understand the end-user perspective on performance
With agentless installation and minimal infrastructure requirements, Login VSI works in any Windows-based virtualized desktop or published application environment, including VMware Horizon View, Citrix XenDesktop and XenApp, and Microsoft Remote Desktop Services (Terminal Services).
Find hidden performance problems
Change is constant in every hosted virtual desktop environment—and with every change there is a risk the environment will behave unexpectedly. Using Login VSI gives you confidence that you will find any application and desktop performance issues before your end-users do. Furthermore, you will also maximize the performance of your current infrastructure.
Simplify performance testing
Load testing used to be complicated, time-consuming and difficult to scale in large production environments. However, Login VSI makes it easy for organizations to quickly set-up and integrate into even the most complex environments. Turn-key yet customizable workloads, agentless installation and minimal infrastructure requirements mean you can be testing within hours.
Predict capacity changes
Software, hardware and security updates are constant. No other load testing or monitoring product will tell you what capacity you can expect or how different it was after an update. After every test, Login VSI will report when the maximum capacity was reached with the patent-pending VSImax calculation.
Improved resource allocation
Login VSI enables you to test, compare and validate the performance of different software and hardware solutions in your unique environment. Through benchmarking, you can make educated and objective decisions on both resource deployments and investments.
Login VSI Virtual Users
The virtual user is utilized at scale by Enterprises for over 10 years and is used to publish hundreds of reference architectures by all the leading VDI vendors in the market. Login VSI’s virtual user is regarded as the benchmark in the industry and is heavily utilized for scale—reaching thousands and even tens of thousands of users. We’ve spent years making the virtual user a representative member of the production environment, and given our capability to time and measure each interaction within the user interface, it is instantly clear when the digital workspace experience has deteriorated.
Login VSI deploys virtual users with realistic workloads to test your environment so you can take the guesswork out of performance.
Optimize GPU performance
The new Multimedia Workload for Login VSI is intended to provide the type of information necessary for successfully scaling solutions leveraging GPUs to deliver the best end-user experience. With the Multimedia Workload the virtual user will use a number of contemporary and graphically intensive applications that are commonly used by most end-users.
Login VSI feature highlights

- Workload customization: It is easy to customize workloads, if required.
- VSImax: VSImax provides a common language for interpreting and comparing performance test results.
- Vendor agnostic: Login VSI works with every Windows-based virtualized desktop solution.
- Easy to install and use: Login VSI does not require any special infrastructure and uses standard Windows-based hardware.
- Multi-language support: Login VSI supports every Windows OS and every MS Office version, in any language, that Microsoft supports.
What our customers are saying
“Predictability is a key piece to VDI. It’s one of reasons that VDI has scared people away, but Login VSI solves that. If you’re going to do it, do it right. Login VSI really gives that rubber stamp on doing it right.”
Andrew Mills, VDI Alliances Manager at Nutanix
“Login VSI is my favorite test orchestration and simulation tool for large-scale reference architecture testing. Not only do we use it in our testing, but we work with partners who use Login VSI exclusively, with the idea that you create the most realistic simulated workload at scale, to really test infrastructure and software capabilities. What’s more, getting the results and be able to measure yourself across platforms and across vendor solutions is just fantastic and is unequalled in the industry.”
