Resources are available if the domain's feature set allows either Weighted Random Load Balancing or Performance-Based Load Balancing.

Before you begin

After you save a Performance or Weighted Load Balancing property to the change list, click the Resources tab on the editing tab to access the Resources Page. See Load feedback resources for information about load feedback resources, including guidelines for using them.
