Hello Steve,

Thank you so much for your response, we are testing each working nodes
separately. These are computers the size of your palm that run on an
average of <10 watts.

With more's law in mind, how far can we push? I just kept the load
under 80% cpu consumptions? Can we increase exponentially till
something starts clunking and pinging?
What I am asking is what is the general rule of thumb when performing
such tests?

Thanks in Advance,
