Multithreaded Logons (How I got a 5-7 second logon time), from BriForum 2008

As more users rely on VDI/Citrix/Terminal Services for application delivery, extremely fast login times have become more of a necessity.

This is a video of a breakout session from BriForum 2008, presented by Michael Thomason.

Session Description: As more users rely on VDI/Citrix/Terminal Services for application delivery, extremely fast login times have become more of a necessity. Not only does it enhance the user experience, it also creates less resistance for porting applications. Until now, the Windows logon experience has been sequential: load profile, roam settings/data, redirect folders, map drives, run logon scripts, etc. It is no surprise logon times are increasing! Users expect consistent login performance.

In this session, you will learn:

  • Multi-thread the Windows login process!
  • Windows 2008 improvements/changes to login process.
  • Detailed overview of the user login process.
  • Various system settings which dramatically decrease login time.
  • How to enable User Environment Debugging to trace user login experience to determine bottlenecks.
  • Dramatically reduce GPO policy processing time.
  • Proper antivirus software configuration and other various filter driver tweaks.
  • Various redirector and workstation service settings which enhance performance.
  • An understanding of how various disk/profile layouts affect login time.
  • Efficient methods for creating “roaming” user profiles/settings.
  • Recommended methods and techniques for folder redirection including Favorites, My Documents, IE history, cookies, and others.
  • Monitoring/Reporting on user login/application experience.
