The $SWD/slaves.tcl file stores the persistent configuration of the vovslaves for a vov project for FlowTracer, NetworkComputer, LicenseMonitor and other Runtime software products.
If you make configuration changes to this file and want them transferred to the vovslaves, without stopping and restarting them, use the vovslavemgr update subcommand. It makes running vovslaves reflect the current state of the slaves.tcl file.
You may also change vovslaves on the fly by using the vovslavemgr configure subcommand, but your changes will be lost when the vovslave is re-started.
To change just the resources of vovslave, use the slaveClass.table file.
