Important information

A host pool is a groups of hosts. Each project has one host pool.

Micro FocusALM Performance Center Edition: When managing a host pool with performance hosts, it is important to understand the total available resources. The host pool must contain at least one Controller, one load generator, and one data processor. Because hosts can have dual functionality, it is recommended that a pool contains, among the other hosts, at least one host that can be dedicated fully for Controller functionality.

A private host can only exist in one pool at a time.

You can add hosts to a host pool in a few different ways. See How to Manage Testing Hosts.
