Configuring Resources

Configuring Resources

When you configure the PowerCenter Integration Service to run on a grid and to check resource requirements, the Load Balancer dispatches tasks to nodes based on the resources available on each node. You configure the PowerCenter Integration Service to check available resources in the PowerCenter Integration Service properties in Informatica Administrator.
You assign resources required by a task in the task properties in the PowerCenter Workflow Manager.
You define the resources available to each node in the Administrator tool. Define the following types of resources:
  • Connection. Any resource installed with PowerCenter, such as a plug-in or a connection object. When you create a node, all connection resources are available by default. Disable the connection resources that are not available to the node.
  • File/Directory. A user-defined resource that defines files or directories available to the node, such as parameter files or file server directories.
  • Custom. A user-defined resource that identifies any other resources available to the node. For example, you may use a custom resource to identify a specific database client version.
Enable and disable available resources on the Resources tab for the node in the Administrator tool or using
