The Coordinator is responsible for actually running the test using the agents.
You can deploy your test on the workers using the following command.
This command creates a single worker per agent and runs the test for 60 seconds (the default duration for a Hazelcast Simulator test).
If your test properties file is called
test.properties, then you can use the following command to have the coordinator pick up your
test.properties file automatically.
By default, the coordinator uses the files
to generate the correct Hazelcast configuration. To use your own configuration files instead, use the following arguments:
coordinator --clientHzFile=your-client-hazelcast.xml --hzFile your-hazelcast.xml ....
You can control the duration of a single test using the
--duration argument. The default duration is 60 seconds. You can specify your own durations using m for minutes, d for days or s for seconds with this argument.
You can see the usage of the
--duration argument in the following example commands.
coordinator --duration 90s map.properties
coordinator --duration 3m map.properties
coordinator --duration 12h map.properties
coordinator --duration 2d map.properties
By default, the provisioner starts the cluster members. You can also use the
--clientWorkerCount arguments to control how many members and clients you want to have.
The following command creates a 4 node Hazelcast cluster and 8 clients, and all load will be generated through the clients. It also runs the
map.properties test for a duration of 12 hours.
coordinator --memberWorkerCount 4 --clientWorkerCount 8 --duration 12h map.properties
Profiles are usually configured with some clients and some members. If you want to have members and no clients:
coordinator --memberWorkerCount 12 --duration 12h map.properties
If you want to have a JVM with embedded client plus member and all communication goes through the client:
coordinator --mixedWorkerCount 12 --duration 12h map.properties
If you want to run 2 member JVMs per machine:
coordinator --memberWorkerCount 24 --duration 12h map.properties
As you notice, you can play with the actual deployment.
