In an environment with multiple concurrent user sessions that run queries, not all user sessions have the same importance. You may want to give more priority to queries executed by transactional applications, which need an immediate response, than to queries executed to generate a daily report.
The Resource Manager allows you to classify sessions into groups based on the attributes of the session, and to allocate resources to those groups in a way that optimizes resources utilization for your application environment.
We recommend managing the Resource Manager from the administration tool.
The section Resource Manager of the Administration Guide provides explains how the resource manager works and how to use it from the administration tool. This section only lists the VQL commands related to the management of the plans and rules of the resource manager.
