Max clientes Storage Node
Hello person, thank you very much for Project Fog.
I have a doubt about the Max Clients of the storage node.
By default, the defaultmember node’s max clients have a value of 10. Can I simply increase this value if I want to deploy to more than 10 computers at the same time? or do I have to deploy a new storage node for this?
sorry for the english.
@george1421 Thank you very much. I will try to run the multicast deploy

The quick answer is yes to increase the number to deploy to more clients.
A bit longer answer is that if you are deploying to more than 3 unicast images at the same time you will saturate (fill up) a 1GbE network connection. Depending on how fast your storage disk is in your server you will saturate your disk subsystem at 6 unicast image deployments at the same time.
So to your question if you need to deploy to more than 10 computers at a time you should use a different FOG imaging technology called multicast image deployment. In this case the fog server only sends out one image and that same image is deployed to all computers that are signed up to listen to that image deployment. Multicasting requires more cooperation with your network infrastructure than simple unicast imaging (sending the image to one computer at a time)
