Selecting the Hosts for a Scenario
Before you run a scenario, you can select which hosts will run Vusers. This
compensates for the possibility that some hosts will be unavailable. For example,
a machine may already be in use when you want to run the scenario.
You select which hosts will take part in the scenario by using the Enable and
Disable commands. Disabling a host temporarily removes it from the list. Enabling
a host reinstates it.
Disabling Hosts
When you disable a host, the host will not execute Vuser scripts during a scenario
execution.
To disable a host:
1
Open the Host window. The Host menu appears in the LoadRunner menu bar.
2
Click a host in the Host window. The host is highlighted.
3
Click the Disable button or choose Host > Disable. The host name changes from
black to gray. The host is disabled.
