Reserve <xx> load generators/hosts...

The number of automatch load generators/hosts to reserve for the timeslot.

Note: Performance Testing timeslots: The total number of hosts (Controller + load generators) reserved for the timeslot may not exceed the Performance Center host and host pool limits of the project, as defined in the project's settings. For details, refer to the Micro Focus ALM Lab Management Guide: Project Settings Details Dialog Box.

Tip: To select multiple automatch load generators/hosts with the same properties, you can do one of the following:

  • In the Reserve <xx> box, enter 1, and select the relevant properties. Repeat this for the other automatch load generators/hosts. If you do this five times, for example, then five identical automatch load generators/hosts are displayed in the Requested Hosts grid.

  • In the Reserve <xx> box enter the number of automatch load generators/hosts you want to select with the same properties. For example, enter 5. One entry is displayed in the Requested Hosts grid, representing all five automatch load generators/hosts.

<Load Generator/Host Properties>

Enables you to specify properties for the requested automatch load generators/hosts:

  • Purpose. The purpose of the host, depending on the type of tests that are linked to the timeslot.

    Available from: Edit Hosts dialog box.

  • Location. The location of the load generators/hosts. To find a specific location, enter the value in the Find box, and click .

  • Host Attributes. Load generator/host attributes.

    The list of attributes can be customized. For details, see the Performance Center documentation.

Note: If no properties are specified, any available load generators/hosts are allocated.
