Learn how to configure dedicated on-premises pools and hosts for Gatling Enterprise.

Here you can create an on-premises pool which represents existing machines.

The pool is defined by a name and a team:

On premises pool table

You can edit the name and set if the pool is global or owned by a team by clicking on the icon of that pool in the table. If you click on the name, it will highlight all the hosts which are in this pool in the host table.

You can delete one or more pool by selecting them and click on the Delete button above the table. The number of simulations associated to the pool is also displayed.

Now you need to create an host and assign it to the pool. To do so, you need to fill the following form:

Host creation

An host is basically a server where the Gatling Enterprise server will upload the binary to use it as an injector for the test.

  • Hostname: the hostname of the server
  • User: the username to use for the connection to the server
  • Private Key: the private key used by the server for SSH authentication
  • Pool: Choose the pool to assign the host. You can select Unassigned Hosts if you don’t want to put your host into a pool yet.
  • Working Directory: Directory on the host where the code will be launched, it needs to be executable

To be sure that Gatling Enterprise can access to the host you can click on the Check connection button.

You can edit your hosts by clicking on the icon in the hosts table. You can duplicate an host to quickly create an host with the same parameters by clicking on the icon of the host on the table.

Duplicate host

If you select one or more hosts, you will see a new button named Action appear on the search bar above the table which allow you to delete all the selected hosts or to switch pool to another for all selected hosts.

Hosts actions

You can sort the pool table or the host table by clicking on their respective columns.
