Original Abstract

This article deals with the possibilities of using terminal servers and virtualization technologies available on Microsoft platforms, VMware and Citrix, and mainly with comparing the communication protocols RDP and PCoIP underlying these technologies. The first part deals with the technical principles of virtualization and compares the benefits of individual technologies. The second part is practically oriented and deals with the design of a methodology for testing the performance of both RDP and PCoIP. Test methodology consists of identifying key factors that describe the behaviour of client stations, which are subsequently used for the selection and design of hardware architecture. The testing methodology is transformed into a scripting language and it is ready for automated testing. Past tests can be divided into groups - the server load performance, monitoring and mapping the data transmission time system response to user stimulus. The performance characteristics of the RDP and PCoIP are monitored and compared.

Czech abstract

Tenro článek se zabývá možnostmi využití terminálových serverů a dostupných virtualizačních technologií na platformách Microsoft, VMware a Citrix, a převážně porovnáním komunikačních protokolů RDP a PCoIP, které jsou základem těchto technologií. V první části jsou rozebrány technické principy virtualizace a srovnány přínosy jednotlivých technologií. Druhá část je zaměřená prakticky a zabývá se návrhem testovací metodiky výkonnosti obou protokolů RDP a PCoIP. Testovací metodika sestává z určení klíčových faktorů popisujících chování klientské stanice, které jsou následně využity pro výběr a dimenzování hardwarové architektury. Testovací metodika je transformována do skriptovacího jazyka a připravena pro automatizované testy. Realizované testy lze rozdělit do skupin zabývajících se výkonnostním zatížením serveru, sledováním datového přenosu a mapováním časové odezvy systému na uživatelský podnět. Jsou zde sledovány a porovnávány výkonnostní charakteristiky protokolů RDP a PCoIP.
