1)Do the satellites accept multiple master connections concurrently and if so, how do they handle it?
ie. one satellite recieves render tasks from 2 masters at the same time (multiple masters using the same rayhosts file).
2)Is there a way to get the satellites to output their activity/progress(to a console/terminal)?
3)If there are more than 8 satellites in the rayhosts file, will the first 8 in the list get used (unlimited license)? Or will the first 8 idle get used? Is there any load balancing?
ie. Say I have 4 master machines and 20 machines total. Can I setup a pool of 16 satellites and each master will choose any 8(unlimited license) based on their current load/queue?
4)Does a hyperthreaded P4 count as 2 satellite CPUs? Because 8 physical P4s are better than 8 logical P4s anyday.
