Successful View deployments hinge on understanding the systems, network and storage impact of desktop user activity. To more accurately configure and size a deployment, it's critical to simulate typical user workloads across a variety of compute tasks. With VMware View Planner you can systematically simulate workloads and adjust sizing and configuration parameters to demonstrate the impact, resulting in a more successful deployment. VMware View Planner increases consultant productivity and accelerates service delivery for View-related customer projects.
View Planner simulates application workloads for various user types (task, knowledge and power users ) by running applications typically used in a Windows desktop environment. During the execution of a workload, applications are randomly called to perform common desktop user operations, including open, save, close, minimize and maximize windows; view an HTML page, insert text, insert words and numbers, conduct a slideshow, view a video, send and receive email, and compress files. View Planner uses a patent pending watermark technique to quantify the user experience and measure application latency on a user client/remote machine.
