You can configure the PowerCenter Integration Service to check the resources available on each node and match them with the resources required to run the task. If you configure the PowerCenter Integration Service to run on a grid and to check resources, the Load Balancer dispatches a task to a node where the required PowerCenter resources are available. For example, if a session uses an SAP source, the Load Balancer dispatches the session only to nodes where the SAP client is installed. If no available node has the required resources, the PowerCenter Integration Service fails the task.
You configure the PowerCenter Integration Service to check resources in the Administrator tool.
You define resources available to a node in the Administrator tool. You assign resources required by a task in the task properties.
The PowerCenter Integration Service writes resource requirements and availability information in the workflow log.
