Select Controller Dialog Box

This dialog box enables you to select a Controller for the performance test.

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

  2. Next to the Controller box, click .

Important information
  • You select only one Controller for a performance test.

  • Due to possible heavy load on the Controller and load generator hosts during a performance test, if you select a C+LG host for Controller functionality, it is best practice not to assign it as a load generator as well.

Description

Automatch: Dedicated Controller

At runtime, an available Controller host in the host pool of the project is allocated for the test run, and is dedicated for Controller functionality. Because it is a dedicated Controller, it cannot be allocated as a load generator as well.

For details about host allocation, see Host Allocation.

Specific

Select this option if you want a specific Controller host. The grid lists the specific Controller hosts available in the project's host pool.

Note: If a host is marked with a red asterisk (*), it is already assigned to a Vuser group as a load generator. Due to possible heavy load on the Controller and load generator hosts during a performance test, if a host is assigned to a Vuser group, it is best practice not to select it as a Controller as well.
