We are going to be deploying 2018.1 EPM agents to our VDI environment soon and the folks that manage it are inquiring about any kind of metrics that can be provided. We've gotten recommendations from Ivanti about best practices, but are interested in what some of you may be doing.
VDI Environment details: 1600 - 3000 active non-persistent and around 60 - 300 persistent VM's. Our virtual desktops are accessed on thin-client embedded OS devices. These thin-client devices are also set back to a pristine state once rebooted similarly to the connection to a new VM when the non-persistent VMs are disconnected from.
Our VDI administrators concerns:
- Will there be any noticeable performance issues (VDI Server level, VM level)? If so, what is done to combat that?
- Any Agent configuration settings to disabled / enable to reduce footprint?
- They want to turn off all scheduled scans, or schedule scans out so far in the future that they never happen. Value in this?
- Any comments on Self-Electing Subnet in a virtual desktop environment?
Any anecdotal evidence, experiences, pitfalls are welcomed.
