During a Login VSI test an error pop-up can show which originates from the "login vsi management console.exe" process. It will usually occur during the session ramp-up phase of the test. The message might look like this:
The VSIshare host's IO or networking likely is overloaded
Potential resolutions are:
- Restart the VSIshare host and re-run a test
- If the issue persists then monitor the IO and networking usages on the VSIshare host
- Increase VSIshare host resources if need be. In this case, if spinning local storage media is used, its recommended using, or migrating the local storage to, a flash hard drive or RAM disk
- In some cases adding more Login VSI web and content shares can lessen the VSIshare host load, especially during tests of 1000 or more test sessions.
- Refer to instructions to add more shares here
Check time differences between targets and the VSIshare host. If there is a large deviation this error can occur
Reinstalling .net 3.5 can potentially resolve the issue
Try running the "Login VSI Management Console.exe" as an admin user
Note: closing the "Login VSI Management Console.exe" UI and closing the error message box during a test will not interrupt the testing, though it will not resolve the aforementioned potential issues.
