Select Rule Definition

Select Rule Definition includes a Rule definition panel, which sets the session parameters, and a Select List, which sets the data traffic routes and the load balancing percentages.

The Rule Definition panel provides a wide range of operands for setting the session - or type of session - that should use a particular Select List, which determines the session's selection route processing and network traffic. In the following Rule, any sessions in the TODC2 network with an application name starting with "CICS" will use the CICSPATH Select List:

Selection List Example

In this case, the CICSPATH Select List will route 90% of the session traffic to a high priority route and the remaining 10% to a low priority route:

Select Rule Example

You can use a variety of rule definition tools to further simplify the definition process, including operand masks.

Select Monitors

Users can display information for the currently allocated resources, including the resource name, the traffic weighting factor assigned to the resource, and the current count of sessions assigned to the resource:
