Example Configurations with Benchmarks
The following is an example of a set configuration with specific benchmarks set:
Host Platform: Dell R7910 (Xeon Haswell E5-2637v3 3.5 GHz) Windows 10
Hypervisor: VMware ESXi 6.7
Virtual Machine: Windows 10, 8 GB RAM
Graphics: NVIDIA M60, GRID 8.0
Network: 1 Gbps LAN
Client Endpoint: Asus VivoMini VC66C, Windows 10
Display: 4K/UHD 3840 x 2160
PCoIP Agent: Version 19.08
PCoIP Client: Version 19.08
Video Content: Big Buck Bunny 1080p 24fps (Opening Scene)
Network Bandwidth Consumption¶
The network bandwidth used in conjunction with PCoIP Ultra AVX2 CPU optimizations are dependent on the configured image quality and size of the video display surface. The table below shows the average bandwidth consumption (in Mbps) for the opening scene of Big Buck Bunny at native 1080p resolution and 1080p upscaled to full-screen (4K/UHD) playback at PCoIP Maximum Initial Image Quality settings of Q70 – Q100.
|Native 1080p Playback||16||27||40||61|
*Q80 is the default
On constrained networks, the PCoIP protocol dynamically adjusts to the available network bandwidth. In cases where bandwidth needs to be proactively constrained, refer to PCoIP settings section for policies that enforce bandwidth and/or frame rate limits.
Host CPU Utilization¶
The table below shows host virtual machine average CPU utilization as measured by the VMware ESXi Performance Monitor at default image quality settings for various virtual machine pCPU core allocations.
|2 pCPU||4 pCPU||6 pCPU||8 pCPU|
|Native 1080p Playback||20%||12%||6%||5%|
