According to CTO Vern Imrich,, the new Rhythmyx 6.6 will have multi-threaded publishing. But right now, we don’t. I guess you could fake concurrent publishing with closely spaced cron files - I haven’t tried it. Someone said that running multiple publishers might speed things up, but that would mean extra licensing fees.
How many webmasters do you have? I wouldn’t want 30 webmasters and 30 sites in the same Community. One Site per Community is a good rule. On the other hand, I don’t know if I’d want to set up 150 sites by myself. Our university will potentially have hundreds of sites, and the standard solution to that is to limit the number of variations. We’re hoping to make division webmasters responsible for the sites in their divisions.
In Rhythmyx 6.5.x (and earlier versions), one edition per site will run concurrently. This was done to make it possible for installation to limit content in slots to that content that was actually published (and not content that is supposed to be published). Nobody does this in practice any more, and we felt that greater concurrency would benefit more customers, so we decided to remove this restriction. (No matter how closely you space the cron jobs, the editions will still be queued).
In Rhythmyx 6.6 (and beyond) we will remove this synchronization, and you can have as many concurrent editions as you would like. We’ve also included some better support for aborting an edition, etc.
