Productivity Killer Number One: The Slow Login
Sure, if your users wait (and wait) to login to their computers, they may end up getting frustrated. But is it really that big of a problem? Consider this: your users might complain about the time it takes to login in the morning and you may be tempted to put the issue on the back burner and attend to more 'important' tasks. But when you consider what five minutes of time lost every morning for every employee may equate to for every day of the foreseeable future, it becomes clear how slow logins can affect the company's bottom line.
Let's take a closer look at common causes of slow logins and explore how to resolve them.
Slow Logins Caused by User Profiles
One common cause for slow logins can be traced to the user profile. Users may suffer from slow login times as a result of a profile bloated with a variety of work-related computer tweaks—if your users have extensive photo collections or like to keep their entire iTunes library on their computers, they may see slow logins. Also, long-time employees with roaming profiles are likely to experience slow logins due to the fact that their profile is overburdened with years of data.
Thankfully, triCerat offers an effective and affordable way to better manage profiles and eliminate slow login times. triCerat's Profile Acceleration Technology™, which is a user profile virtualization software, provides businesses with an alternative to huge roaming profiles and ever growing profile bloat issues. Profile Acceleration Technology™ is a simple piece of software that instantly reduces minute long login times to under 10 seconds and minimizes profile corruption without affecting existing user profiles by ‘virtualizing’ the profile.
Slow Logins Caused by Login Scripts
Login scripts can certainly make life more convenient for system administrators by allowing them to automate a variety of desktop management tasks with a piece of code. However, their flexibility and ease of creation can actually create slow login problems if a new system administrator has to write his new scripts on top of older scripts. In addition, if login scripts are improperly configured, inconsistently maintained, or the computer simply errs while transferring code during logoff, slow login times can quickly shift to the inability to login at all.
Profile Acceleration Technology™ can help avoid slow login times caused by login scripts and can improve the efficiency of the login process.
An Effective, Efficient Way to Handle Login Issues
For system administrators looking for ways to resolve slow login problems due to user profile issues or login scripts, ignoring the problem is certainly an option—though probably not a particularly viable, long term one. Profile virtualization software like triCerat's Profile Acceleration Technology™ (PAT) offers an effective, efficient way to eliminate slow login times and more often than not profile corruption issues.
