VCAP-DTA PCoIP Tuning Quick  Reference

Following on from my previous post regarding tuning your Windows 7 image for the purposes of the VCAP-DTA exam, I lifted the following table from the View 5.2 Best Practices guide. In the exam you don’t have a lot of time and you’re probably going to have to tackle a question at some stage about PCoIP performance or be asked to tune it for certain restrictive network conditions. The table below has a handful of settings which should help you go a decent way to getting good marks for this question:-




Build to lossless


Turn Off

Enables the ability to enable or disable build to lossless
Session Audio BWlimit


50 – 100Kbps

Reduces bandwidth usage of audio with usable quality
Maximum frame rate


Change to 10-15 based on network settings

In WAN conditions, this will be helpful for video playback and fast graphics operations
Maximum sessionbandwidth


Set per network conditions

Good for better bandwidth estimation
Client side cache size


Set per client-side memory available

This allows you to configure the client side image cache size
