Maximum SMB Connections
To ensure CloudFS stability, and that each node is not overwhelmed by SMB connections, the following table delineates the maximum limits of SMB connections a node will accept given resources (system memory, CPU) available. CloudFSs will not accept SMB connections beyond the stated limits in this table. These limits apply to nodes deployed as VMs both in-cloud and on-premise. Please note that this table is not a substitute for proper sizing of nodes. Please consult your Panzura Sales Engineer for complete recommendations.
