Creating Session Pools

To create a session pool

To create a pool you must have at least one model deployed to the session server. You can deploy models using the Design Tool or on the command line. See the Design Tool help for instructions.

  1. From the Session Server Explorer tree, select Pools under the appropriate session server, and click or right-click and choose Add Pool.

    The Add Session Pool dialog box displays.

  2. Specify the name of the pool. When you create a new session pool, it is assigned, by default, the name Pool-1 (or whatever number is appropriate). You can specify any name you want.

  3. From the Models to use drop down list, select the model you want to associate with the new pool.

  4. The Start pool option is enabled by default. This option starts the pool as soon as it is created. Clear this checkbox to delay starting the pool. Click Next.

    The Session Pool Details panel displays.

  5. Determine the details for the new session pool. Session pool options include session management and host information. See Viewing Session Pool Options for complete descriptions of these settings.

  6. Click Next to configure more advanced options or click Finish to complete creating the session pool.

  7. If needed, complete the Advanced Session Pool Details panel. See Viewing Session Pool Options for complete descriptions of these settings.

  8. Click Finish.

    The pool is added to the Pools view and it's associated session information is added to the Sessions view. You can open both of these views using the View menu.

You can add model variables to the session pool and set pool scheduling options using the Pool Properties page. To open the property page, click on the toolbar or right-click the pool name in the Session Server Explorer and choose Properties.
