Couldn’t use my normal laptop to do some single user web performance tests. So, I remotely connected onto another workstation using Microsoft terminal services. I did the tests and found it took 6 seconds longer for a particular transaction type when compared to my laptop. Why?
That transaction opens a separate browser window which when remotely connected takes 7.5 seconds rather then the normal 1.5. If I physical login to the box and do the test the browser window opens in 1.5 seconds.
Strange but true….
