Would like to clarify licensing for MQTT Distributor. I understand there is a standard with 50 clients and a plus for 250 clients. Just want to make sure I understand what a “client” is in relation to group, node and devices.
Is a node a client as well as anything else that connects through the distributer, like the Ignition server? Device is not considered a client? Any limitations to devices? I can’t get them numbers to match up so just want to make sure I don’t push any limits and get a base understanding. I didn’t see how to get a list of “clients”, just the count in the MQTT Distributor tags and the client count is 11 more than the node count under MQTT Engine.
In the case of my client, they have the edge devices organized in such a way that there appears to be multiple nodes on each edge device because there was the desire to use the grouping to group tag types together coming from the edge.
