GSX Solutions today announced the release of GSX Monitor & Analyzer support for Microsoft Lync 2013. The new release continues GSX’s mission of supporting customers’ unified communication systems wherever they are, including the cloud-hosted version of Office 365.
Most performance monitoring tools only provide a bird’s-eye-view of systems and servers and whether they are on or off. GSX Solutions actually measures service performance from a user’s perspective to anticipate and avoid costly outages.
GSX Robot User is performing stress tests on the system in the following ways:
- Simulating the creation, connection and activation of the web conference services;
- Measuring time delays when attempting to create a Web conference, including video and presentation features via the Lync Web application.
- Performance stress tests on the system-level PowerShell Connection, Windows services and processes, performance counters and potential disk outages;
- General front-end services, including tests on user authentication, address-book services access, presence service, number of connected users, etc.;
- Instant messaging services between two and more users;
- VoIP services, commutation abilities of the Lync server, PSTN peer-to-peer calls and VoIP calls through Lync.
