Troubleshooting application slowness in WVD environment

Danish Saud 1 Reputation point

We have recently implemented a new application into our catalog and the performance of this specific application on RemoteDesktop is extremely bad. For example, once loaded into the application opening a specific screen (which is a new window) can cause the application to enter a "Not Responding" state.

Intuition thinks that it is slow when printing the results from the Session host into the RemoteDesktop app.

When installing the app directly onto a Windows 10 laptop the application performs fine.

I am trying to understand what lower-level investigation can be done to identify the root cause.

Some extra info:

  • Session Hosts (8): Size - Standard D4s v3 , vCPUs - 4, RAM - 16GB, OS - Windows 10 Enterprise for Virtual Desktops.
  • Session limit: 16
  • There are other applications (some much more resource-intensive) that are running on the servers perfectly fine.

    Thank you for your question.

    How is the application Installation size is this application too resource heavy ?

    It can be slow if there is too much graphics which requires rendering and cashing on while displaying using RDP .

    I would also like to suggest public small app like calculator or notepad and see how it works.
