TIP: Create allocations for your environments
We recommend that you create an allocation for each environment and region in which you have players. For example, you might create the following allocations if you have development, test and production environments and players in Australia and Asia:
- Allocation with region AUSTRALIA, for the development environment
- Allocation with region ASIA, for the development environment
- Allocation with region AUSTRALIA, for the test environment
- Allocation with region ASIA, for the test environment
- Allocation with region AUSTRALIA, for the production environment
- Allocation with region ASIA, for the production environment
The scaler increases and decreases server hardware resources and payloads in line with your game’s requirements, within the boundaries you set in the allocation.
Log into the zeuz control panel and go to Orchestration > Allocations to view your existing allocations.
