HP Thin Client, Terminal Server & Flash
We have discovered, Flash animations absolutely kill the processor on the terminal server (Server 2008 R2). We have been testing a HP t5565 Thin Client using the ThinPro operating system (based on Debian). HP have released "HP Thin Clients - HP RDP Enhancements for Flash Redirection". I have successfully installed this on the terminal server, and on the thin client, but we're still seeing that ONE user running ONE flash animation will push the CPU usage up to 90%. This 'fix' is meant to move the flash processing from the server to the client to reduce load on the server, but we're just not seeing it work.
