A new white paper has been released by Project VRC which is all about the Impact of Microsoft App-V 5.0. This white paper contains detailed performance data which can be applied to diverse App-V infrastructures. If you are using Microsoft App-V 5.0, this white paper is a must read. In this blog post I want to explain why you should read this white paper.
When migrating to a newer operating system will the App-V publishing time be different? When publishing times are important you don’t want to be surprised with increasing times. With the release of Windows 10 Technical Preview I was wondering if there is a difference in publishing times with Windows 7, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10. In this blog post I will share the result I collected in this research.
I’m proud to announce a new App-V tool called GAP-IT which stand for “Get App-V Publishing Times”. GAP-IT can collect App-V publishing times in your environment and generate a Microsoft Excel report.
The report contains publishing times of individual packages, the percentage of published packages and the average publishing times. This is valuable information and can be used to verify if App-V publishing times are taking too long and if optimization is needed.
Last week the North America edition of TechED was held in Houston and I was one of the lucky guys that presented on stage. Together with Ment van der Plas we worked very hard to bring you unbiased and independent information about the true impact of App-V 5.0. This presentation was recorded and want to share this with you. If you are working with Microsoft App-V and looking for ways to improve your performance, I recommend you to watch the session.

When publishing App-V 5.x applications it is interesting to know how long it takes to publish all applications. I needed this information during a large scale test to get a better understanding of the impact on the user experience. I also wanted to know if the publishing time increases when more users are active. This information can be used to optimize the publishing time and eventually the user experience.
In this blog post I will share a powershell function that can get the App-V publishing time on a remote specific machine.
