Load Balancing Engine Node

I am looking for a solution, so that i can configure the apps in Dedicated stream to run only in Dedicated Engine Node. As per default rule, central node runs all the apps. Even if the dedicated engine node is sitting idle, central node is not sending that to that node.

Is there anyway I can run the "DemoStaging" app in dedicate engine node only?

QS Server Version : June 2017

Re: Load Balancing Engine Node

Issue seems to be resolved now by itself. It looks like the load balancing rules will not take place when there is active user sessions. Since there was no user activity during this weekend, dedicated app was synced to its own dedicated engine node. Thanks jaikumarsoni and digvijay for your response.

Re: Load Balancing Engine Node

You can write a load balancing rule to load all the apps from Dedicated stream to load on specific Engine. Something like..

Resource Filter: App_*

Condition: ((node.name="Engine" and resource.stream.name="Dedicated"))

Make sure to disable the default rule.

Re: Load Balancing Engine Node

Thanks for the reply jaikumarsoni‌ I have the load balancing rule in place and I see the rule is valid when I preview/audit the rule. Not sure why the app is still running in central node, instead of dedicated engine node.

Re: Load Balancing Engine Node

Are you going via correct virtual proxy which has dedicated engine association.
