Running multiple adapters from same machine


anuraag kb (93) | asked Aug 25 '20, 3:30 p.m.

As per running some tests with the sample command line adapter we have the below question:


From the same machine we are able to run multiple adapters having same Adapter Name of same Adapter Type and the adapters are visible in the Adapter console in ETM. Would there be any potential problems arising out of this scenario?

[Visually I can understand the connected adapters are assigned sequential IDs - 1,2,3...]

You need to make sure that each instance runs in its own directory and personally I would use a different name.

The Command Line Adaptor is multi-threaded and can process multiple requests at the same time, so in general the reason you would want to run a second adaptor on the same machine would be so that you can run different tests in a different environment.

You need to be careful what you run on each adaptor - imagine that each adaptor is a different physical human being and that each job is a different app running. Now imagine that you have multiple humans all logged into a common environment as the same user, and each running the same app multiple times. It would get very confusing very quickly!
