Graphic workload testing with Login VSI
Last week Floris van der Berg, an R&D engineer at Login VSI, blogged about testing graphic workloads with Login VSI.
More and more companies want to use graphics software in their virtual environment. But, before you implement it throughout your complete organization, you want to test the scalability and usability of it.
From the blog:
Because of the many complexities, we decided not to create a graphical workload, but to instead provide a customizable graphical testing framework which can use any graphical application with different visualization modes, models and frame rate requirements.
By providing a “template” graphics workload–which contains only the basic workload commands to get started–it is easy to incorporate the graphics application of the end user. As long as the application supports some kind of automation (for example, using an API, keystrokes or a macro), it can be used in the Graphics Framework.
