Choppy Video performance from IGEL thin clients for Spice

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • I am having trouble with video performance using the Spice protocol to connect to a Redhat or Windows VM from an IGEL thin client.
  • The video will hitch every 2 seconds, and delay for 3 or 4 seconds before playing again.


  • Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization (RHEV) 3.1
  • The IGEL Thin Client being used is a VIA Nano CPU running a single display at 1920x1200.
  • The CPU specs on the thin-client are: VIA Nano 1.3 GHz, 1GB of memory, 1GB of flash.
