Adding or trimming agents

This section describes the steps you perform to add and trim agents.
To initiate a WebSpeed agent add and trim request:
1. From the grid frame for Resources, click the Edit icon to display the details page for the WebSpeed broker for which you want to initiate an agent add and trim request.
2. Click Agent Pool Control in the Command and control section to display the Agent Pool Control page, as shown:
3. From the drop-down list box, select Add or Trim.
4. In the agent(s) field, enter the number of agents you want to add or trim. The value you enter must be a positive integer.
When you initiate an add or trim request, OpenEdge Management consults the following two sets of initial configuration details to determine if and how it can honor either request:
*The number of agents for which you are licensed
*The broker property configuration settings stored in the file
See the for information about the configuration details.
5. Click Submit. Depending on the changes you make and OpenEdge Management's ability to implement them, you might notice updates to the numeric values that appear in the Agents state table. See Agent pool initial configurationthe for more information.
Note: Any time you either add or trim WebSpeed agents, it is recommended that you refresh the management console to ensure that you are not viewing stale data.
