This can be enabled by tenant administrators from Tenant Settings -> General options – “Auto run compatibility checker when user starts the lab”. If enabled, when a user starts a lab, the system prompts the user to choose whether to run a compatibility check.

The speed test will help us evaluate any potential performance issues you are having with VMware Lab Platform that may be related to network bottlenecks. The test will be run three times, connecting to a different server each time. It first tests latency (network delay) and then speed (network bandwidth).

Recommended Scores

Latency - A good latency score would be less than 300 ms; the lower the better

Speed - A good speed score would be greater than 1.5Mb/s; the higher the better
