#VDI Tip 61: Be Careful when using Client-side Caching with Thin Clients

Client-side caching provides huge bandwidth savings with VMware View 5. Client-side caching can save 30-40 percent of the overall bandwidth. The default size is set to 250 MB and can go up to 300 MB. With older thin clients that have less the 1 GB of RAM you may run into issues. If the client-side cache is set too high, you may start experiencing dropped sessions.

Thanks to Chuck Hirstius, the Master of PCoIP at VMware for making me aware of this issue. Give him a follow at @rexremus
