I’m currently implementing a project that will have 20 production lines, each with their own VXL V200 thin client running Ignition and communicating PCoIP to the gateway on a VMware horizon view server.
Upon opening an Ignition client on one of the V200s, I’m seeing very slow navigation, sometimes up to 5 minutes in switching pages. This project includes quite a bit of indirection based upon a client tag as the current production line number of the client, as well as a few screens utilizing a template repeater.
Based upon these diagnostics, it seems like the CPU is getting hit pretty hard. the two long plateaus are two different attempts to switch screens. the longer one took about 5 minutes:
I have no issue on my machine or regular PCs within the plant loading up screens quickly. This only seems to affect the clients accessed through the V200s.
Also, an older project without indirection/templating was loaded up on a V200, and we had no navigation issues.
Has anyone had experience with this type of architecture before, or could point me to a solution?
