A client virtual machine can connect with multiple desktops in the passive mode configuration. Passive mode requires fewer client machines in comparison to remote mode while simulating network and system load of VDI protocols.
In this mode, a client virtual machine can act as a passive user and can connect with multiple desktops. Therefore, you can test the same number of desktops with lesser hardware while simulating network and system load of VDI protocols in desktops .
During the run, the View Planner agent in the desktop virtual machine acts as a user and takes the virtual machine through a series of predefined operations while measuring its performance.
When the run is completed, the desktop virtual machines report their results to the harness and the result is stored in a database for post-processing.
