  • Properties. The properties by which the automatch load generator is matched up with a specific load generator at runtime.

    Any is displayed by default. This means that the automatch load generator can be matched up with any load generator at runtime. To specify properties for a particular automatch load generator, click the corresponding Any link in the Properties column to open the Automatch Load Generator Properties dialog box. For details, see Automatch Load Generators Properties Dialog Box.
