In the past, we ran multiple simulator services on the same DevTest server. However, after upgrading to DevTest 10.7 we are not able to start multiple simulators; only 1 simulator service is starting.
Release : 10.7+
Component : DevTest VSE, DevTest Simulator, DevTest Coordinator
Engineering investigated the issue and found that the third-party vendor for install4j made a code change to the installer, and no longer allow for starting multiple instances of a service on a single machine. Therefore, starting in DevTest 10.7, users will not be able to run multiple copies of the DevTest services on a single machine. Instead, users will need to start multiple instances of the DevTest components (executable binaries) and not use the service binaries.
Multiple instances of DevTest components can be run on a single server.
Note: there is a limit on how many instances can be created based on hardware requirements
For the VSE to run, the minimum hardware that is required is 2 CPUs and 4-GB RAM, and it supports up to 250 TPS. Based on the available hardware and your TPS requirements, determine the amount of hardware that should be allocated to each instance of VSE and the total number of instances of VSEs you can run on the server computer.
Below are the examples to start multiple instances of VSE. The same is applicable for other components
