Title: Citrix MetaFrame XP Presentation Server Windows-based Application Access Performance and Functionality

Publication date:   23 June 2003
Document number:    203104


The Tolly Group recently evaluated Citrix MetaFrame XP Presentation Server application access software in conjunction with the Citrix Nfuse Web-based client. Citrix Systems, Inc. commissioned the tests.

Results show that Ctirx Systems application access suite delivers an “on machine” experience for Ethernet/Fast Ethernet users, as well as users accessing the server via WiFi 802.11b wireless connections. An “on-machine” experience is the perception of working on the PC from where the application is running.

When simulated WAN connections of T1 and 56 Kbps were evaluated using Shunra\Cloud 4.0, users saw little or no lag between what they typed and when it echoed from the server. As expected, load times for the initial program startup, as well as for insertion of bit-mapped graphics, were noticeably slower. But even when the WAN speed was reduced to 28.8 Kbps, users were able to complete the business process in only a little over twice the time it took when using a “full-throttle” Fast Ethernet connection.
