Use this action dialog to modify profiles or to copy profile templates. This action dialog is available in both the Model Wizard and Model Editor. When you directly modify a default profile, all clients or servers in the capacity model that use the default profile that you edit are affected. However, you can copy a default profile template to create a new profile and then apply the profile to either a discrete group of client computers with the Edit Client Profile action in the Model Editor or to an individual server computer when you use the Edit server role action.
|Usage profiles contain parameters for all services that can be modeled for an application, including services that are not being used in a capacity model. When a service is not being used, its usage profile parameters are ignored by Capacity Planner.|
