Rate Limiting Terminals

Salt is able to run commands in parallel on a large number of terminals. This can potentially create large amounts of load on your infrastructure. You can use rate-limiting parameters to control the load in your environment.

For more information about rate limiting on terminals, see salt:salt-rate-limiting.adoc.

Troubleshooting

Sometimes when attempting to reboot a terminal after attempting to apply the Saltboot formula, the terminal will hang at the boot screen. This can be caused by a presence ping timeout value being set at a value that is too low. You can adjust the presence ping timeout value to fix this problem.
