Subject Re: How to configure a limit on simultaneous replications?

If you mean the _replicator database then, yes, currently it will
attempt to run all the jobs at once. That is, there is Considerable
Room For Improvement.

the slower / laggier / flakier the network is, the more roadblocks are thrown in the way of
the replicator. It should still work reliably, though, so what you’re describing sounds
like a bug; a dozen tiny databases should be able to replicate in a few seconds unless there
are major network issues.
