New! Listen to this post in our daily podcast.
One of the new features of Citrix Presentation Server 4.0 is virtual memory optimization management. This feature lets you put more users on a server and generally enables applications to load faster.
Virtual memory optimization technology is not new to the server-based computing world. It’s been around for years in RTO’s TScale product. (Some people might also know it as “DLL memory address rebasing.”) Citrix licensed the TScale technology from RTO when they created Presentation Server 4.0.
All most people know about this technology is that it “does something” to the DLLs to change the way they use virtual memory.
In this show, Brian Madden has a conversation with Kevin Goodman, the architect and patent-holder of this virtual memory optimization technology. Kevin will provide very detailed description of how this technology works, how you and test and manage it, and when it should and shouldn’t be used.
Utilities Mentioned in the show
Streams is a utility that lets you see when TScale / Citrix memory optimization management is causing a DLL or EXE to read it's data from an alternate stream. (i.e. this thing lets you see this technology in action!)
GUI Utility from RTO for modifying Citrix Presentation Server 4.0 Memory Optimization Management Features. (available soon...)
