NaViSet Administrator can communicate to multiple different devices in parallel, which speeds up operation by allowing simultaneous connections, and allows more operations to be performed while waiting for other devices to respond to commands. Up to 30 connections can be used by selecting Maximum simultaneous network connections in the application Preferences.
Assuming that all 30 connections are used with the maximum possible efficiency, then operations on all devices will complete at 30 times the speed of performing the operation on all devices in serial using one connection. Depending on the device, connection type, and operation being performed, operation times are typically between 5 seconds to 1 minute.
Example: Approximately how long would it take to power off 1000 displays?
Assuming a power off operation takes 15 seconds to perform on a device, if performed serially using one connection the total time would be about 15 seconds x 1000 = 15000 seconds (over 4 hours). If 30 connections are used, then the time is 15 x 1000 ÷ 30 = 500 seconds (just over 8 minutes). It is assumed that no other operations are being performed at the same time.
