Select Specific Load Generators/Hosts Dialog Box

This dialog box enables you to reserve specific load generators/hosts for a testing timeslot.

To access
  1. On the ALM sidebar, under Lab Resources, select Timeslots.

  2. On the toolbar, click New Timeslot .

  3. In the Requested Hosts grid, click Add Specific LG (for Performance Test timeslots), or Add Specific Hosts (for Functional Test Set or Build Verification Suite timeslots).

Important information
  • To avoid a timeslot becoming partially allocated in the case that a specific load generator/host unexpectedly becomes unavailable, it is recommended to rather reserve automatch load generators/hosts. For details about selecting automatch load generators/hosts, see Select Automatch Load Generators/Edit Hosts Dialog Box.
  • This dialog box is available for testing timeslots only.
