SAS 9.4 SLOW App-V Load RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey can someone give me some pointers here.  I have created an App-V package to run SAS 9.4 and it is SLOW

    Here are the details:

    APP-V Package size-5.1gb

    Vmware Workstation running Windows 7x64

    SSD drive holding the VHD

    4gb of ram

    It it is taking about 30 seconds to load--don't laugh.  Trust me we have faculty members that will start clicking the program several times..

    also I anticipate on a SATA drive it will be a minute or more to load.

    is there any "Tweaks" I can do to speed it up?  Or is this average.. Please keep in mind the 30 second load time is a SSD drive.

    Thanks.

  • How does the app go to the VDI machine? Ist it already part of the bas eimage, will it be added/published/mounted during off peak hours or are the VDI VM's 'clean'. What happens the second time (user shuts down and re-opens the app)? 
    What version of the App-V client do you use (incl HFs)

  • Hello,

    Whats the difference between a native app and the virtual one?

  • Hey usgrcm,

    I've experienced this same issue when an AppV application is mounted and then launched for the first time.

    AppV 5 Shared Content Store performance profiled vs. local disk

    The performance speedup was true regardless of whether it was mounted locally or SCS.  After the 15th launch of the application, application startup times were near native performance.  But the first 14 or so launches it was slower and the first launch of an AppV 5 application is really slow.

    23 18:03.7 18:07.3 00:03.6

    To combat this slowness we've created a script that will launch the application, wait 30 seconds, terminate, repeat 15 times.  It's a huge hassle.
