Assign Load Generators to Multiple Groups Dialog Box

This dialog box enables you to assign one or more load generators—automatch or specific—to multiple Vuser groups at once. You can also use this dialog box to remove one or more load generators from multiple Vuser groups at once.

To access
  1. In the Performance Test Designer window, click Groups & Workload.

  2. From the LG Distribution drop-down list, select Assign manually.

  3. Click Assign Load Generators to Multiple Groups .

Description


Enables you to add more automatch load generators for the test. Enter the number of load generators in the adjacent box and click Add LGs.


Assigns the selected load generators to the selected Vuser groups.


Removes the selected load generators from the selected Vuser groups.

Automatch tab

Enables you to select automatch load generators to assign to Vuser groups in the test, or to remove assigned automatch load generators from the Vuser groups.

  • Name. The name of the automatch load generator. By default, these are named LG1, LG2, and so on.

  • Properties. The properties by which the automatch load generator is matched up with a specific load generator in the host pool of the project at runtime.

    Any is displayed by default. This means that the automatch load generator can be matched up with any load generator in the project's host pool at runtime.

    To specify properties for an automatch load generator, click the corresponding link in this column to open the Automatch Load Generator Properties dialog box. For details, see Automatch Load Generators Properties Dialog Box.

Tip: To select all the load generators in the list, select the check box in the check box column heading.

Specific tab

Enables you to select load generators from the project's host pool to assign to the Vuser groups in the test, or to remove them from the Vuser groups.

  • <filter>. Enables you to filter the information being displayed in grid.

  • Name. The name of the load generator.

  • Status. The current status of the load generator.

  • State. The state of the load generator: Operational; Non-operational; Unavailable

    Note: Assigned load generators must be operational during runtime.

  • Location. The location of the load generator.

  • Purpose. The purpose of the load generator. Controller, Load Generator, Data Processor, or a combination of these.

      Note:
    • Only the hosts in the pool with at least a Load Generator purpose are displayed.

    • UFT GUI tests cannot run on a load generator that has been selected as the Controller of the performance test.

    • If a load generator is marked with an asterisk (*), this indicates that the load generator host has been selected as the Controller. It is recommended not to use a Controller host as a load generator as well.

Tip: To select all the load generators in the list, select the check box in the check box column heading.

<Select Load Generators pane>

Enables you to select load generators to assign to the Vuser groups in the test, or to remove them from the Vuser groups.

  • Click the Specific tab to select specific load generators.

Select Groups pane

Enables you to select the Vuser groups to which the selected load generators are to be assigned, or from which they are to be removed.

  • Name. The name of the Vuser group.

  • Assigned Load Generators. The load generators currently assigned to the Vuser group.
