Resource Manager dialog box

The Resource Manager provides a central place for managing all Output Manager resources. Resources are available to any Output Manager service, running on any server. For example, 2 Output Manager Output Services running on 2 different servers, could use the same resources. Resources are used in business rule and output process actions. You can access this dialog box by selecting Tools > Resource Manager in the Output Manager Console.
