    Zero Client Stress Testing

    What do people think would be good tests of performance for Zero Clients? Although I only have 2 devices (hopefully going to get a few more)

    Currently i can only think of two tests

    1. Streaming multiple videos to the clients
    2. Using Intensive programs on multiple clients (such as photoshop etc)


    Anybody think of some good tests to stress these devices. The host is Intel Core I3, 4Gb ram, 64Gb ssd

    Find some flash interactive websites that have a lot of flash on the front page and load that up a few times. The nickelodeon website (Nickelodeon | Kids Games, Kids Celebrity Video, Kids Shows | Nick.com) used to kill lots of older thin clients, but they've redesigned it now so its not as bad!

    Yeah i noticed flash seems to drive CPU Up. With these clients there is a process providing the graphics which can eat CPU
