My favourite VMworld 2017 sessions (US and EU)

User Experience Troubleshooting Deep Dive, Part 3: protocol metrics

In part 1 and part 2 of the User Experience Troubleshoot Deep Dive Series I focussed on explaining what metrics to look at and how to monitor them. In the next coming parts I would like to dive deeper in the metrics. Part 3 is dedicated to protocol metrics, so PCoIP and Blast Extreme/BEAT. Why not RDP you would say?
