Fujitsu Laboratories Ltd. has developed an automated analysis technology to identify the reason behind the performance degradation in virtual desktop systems. It’s the industry’s first technology that monitors packets on the network to analyze bottlenecks caused by storage without affecting system operations. Moreover, by combining this technology with its earlier developed virtual analysis technology, Fujitsu has developed an analysis technology to automatically detect bottleneck locations when the performance of the virtual desktop systems degrades.
During the trials in a prototype system under an environment operating 300 virtual machines (VMs), the time needed to identify the reason behind performance degradation could be reduced to approximately one-tenth of what was required earlier. Besides, many problems could not be identified in a single cycle and had to be repeated for three times. But with the new technology, the task can be accomplished in a single cycle as the system accumulates only the data which is necessary for performance analysis.

The new technology enables operations managers to comprehensively investigate the causes of performance degradation without spending time on separate processes to identify those causes or adding to the burden on systems in operation. It has the following key features:
• This technology facilitates in reducing the accumulation of data which is important to analyze the storage performance without harming the virtual desktop performance.
• It accumulated data from about several weeks of activity to automatically analyze locations that are acting as bottlenecks in the system as a whole through a comprehensive relational analysis.
