Dynamics 365 USD Performance Testing (Part 3)

This is the 3rd part of a series of blog posts which cover a set of Performance Testing scripts I have used to test Dynamics 365 CE with Unified Service Desk with XenApp.

This test focuses on the controller script which is used to launch user sessions.   Below is a version of the script I used.  It has some comments which cover what each of the sections do.
One of the fundamental issues I had was how to programmtically launch Citrix sessions from PowerShell.  Fortunately LoginVSI comes with an executable called SFConnect.exe.  This is a really simple application which makes it easy to launch Citrix sessions.

If you are not lucky enough to have access to SFConnect.exe, then you could use something like this.

In the next part I will record a video of this in action in my lab and in the final blog I will look at areas where this could potentially be improved.

I would love to get your feedback on the blog so far, so feel free to make some comments.
