20.5. Applications

Some applications, such as intensive 3-D visual simulations, might run very slowly on a Sun Ray Client.

Applications that use double-buffering such as pseudo-stereo viewers and applications that use high-frequency dynamic color table flips on 8-bit visual displays might not show the proper result. Turn off antialiasing to save screen resources.

Install interactive applications such as web browsers and PC interoperability tools such as Oracle Secure Global Desktop (SGD) software on the Sun Ray server. The applications benefit from faster transport of commands to the Sun Ray Client's X server and network traffic is reduced.

If an application can be configured to use shared memory instead of DGA or OpenGL(R), using shared memory results in improved performance.
