Not this weekend but next going to WorldCon in San Jose.
I've been telling people this sort of thing is what to expect for the future of computing solutions for some years now.
Not sure this is the device that will make it catch on but we are ever closer to it being a truly useful option.
Some of our connection attempts have been run direct from my office to a server in the RD farm rather than through their standard method, sessions still exhibit slow behavior.
Neglected to bring my laptop when visiting that office earlier today. All of the staff there are on thin clients so any pings would have been inside the NY network.
Probably there is access to diagnostic tools on these devices but I didn't have time to find them. Need to poke at the manual.
Can you get actual latency numbers, both for Denver and some sites that are working well?
Don't have numbers from other offices that are working will ask. From my desk, sub 50ms but this is a different Denver location(we are also slow when connecting to the RD server).
Probably able to get numbers from at least the actual problem site again a bit later today.
Need to find out about any fine-tuning that may have been done to the RDS servers. These settings may work well for the other sites, but not the Denver site.
Not sure about this bit, will see what I can do. I think there is a load balancer involved as well which I could see being part of the issue.
Not sure we have enough info/access yet to get to an answer but worth a try anyhow!
The company I work for has been bought recently and we are dealing with an infrastructure we aren't super familiar with just yet but have been tasked to help with the issue.
Branch offices access virtual desktop sessions hosted on a server at the HQ(NY).
One branch in our area (Denver) is having performance issues with their remote sessions. Performance is reportedly fine at the rest of the offices. We are by some margin the furthest away so I sort of suspect some kind of latency issue.
Everything in the remote session is laggy at this location. For example load a webpage with a photo slider at the top and each change ends up being drawn line by line.
There is a site to site VPN between the locations provided by SonicWALL devices.
Pings to edge devices and the server being accessed have so far seemed decent to good.
Have checked traffic on the internet connection and so far it doesn't look like they are over running the connection capability.
Also ran an RD session to a host in AWS West region which worked without trouble from the same location, internet, piece of hardware. Not sure this tells us a whole lot though since there is still a lot changed from one situation to the other.
What other steps can we take to find the issue and stamp it out?
@jmoore There are some quests in that game that make me wonder if i am a decent person or not because of my choices.
"did I really just help this person who is a drunk, wife beating murderer? For 200 gold? Yes I did."
"That person I just saved turned into a werewolf and butchered an entire village!"
oh my, guess there will be some interesting times to come
There really are. That game has much more interesting moral dilemmas than pretty much any other and outcomes will not always match expectations. Great stuff.
Probably going to binge the new season of Stranger Things this weekend.
We were thinking the same thing.
I want to do this, but watched the first season while the SO was out of town. Think she wants to give it a go so I may be watching season one again soon rather then jumping into 2 right away.
