Could someone please suggest the steps that i can follow to verify if the load balancing is happening.
- Proxy logs should tell you how many Engine's it can load balance towards when you open a specific App. And which engine it load balances the current user towards.
Can i force a dashboard to load on a particular node?
- Yes, using Load Balancing rules: Configuring load balancing rules ‒ Qlik Sense
Can i verify if the resource is being used only for loading the dashboards on the hub and not for reloading the apps?
- Nodes that have Scheduler service enabled and is configured as "Slave" or "Master and Slave" will be used for scheduled reloads. To prevent reload from happening on a consumer node you will have to change the node purpose to "Production".
See Type section in Schedulers Overview page: http://help.qlik.com/en-US/sense/September2017/Subsystems/ManagementConsole/Content/schedulers-overview.htm
