Opened: Dec 22, 2016
Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

Impact

Since APM does not support Blast UDP, Vmware Horizon Client always uses TCP transport even when the network conditions dictate that UDP transport would be more efficient

Conditions

1. Vmware View Connection Server is configured for Blast UDP 2. Client attempts Blast UDP

Workaround

None

Fix Information

APM now adds support for Blast Extreme Adaptive Transport protocol, which in turn enables Blast UDP.
