How to Troubleshoot Performance in Windows Virtual Desktop (WVD) Environments

Troubleshooting performance issues in virtual desktop environments is challenging.  It requires a solid grasp of the deployment architecture and an understanding of how the various system components interact with each other.  Poor or inconsistent performance is the single biggest reason for an end-user to be unhappy with their virtual desktop and is by far the...

How to Troubleshoot Performance in Windows Virtual Desktop (WVD) Environments – Part 5 of 5 (NETWORK)

In part 5 of 5, we're discussing Network-related performance issues in WVD environments. Network latency and packet loss can create a poor end-user experience.  Bandwidth, on its own, is not a likely contributor to poor performance unless the bandwidth is very constrained and that leads to latency of packet loss.  It is very important to draw the distinction between bandwidth, latency, and packet loss.  They are different, and often independent, measures of network quality and troubleshooting one when the problem is with another can lead to lots of wasted effort and erroneous conclusions.
