@distributed fails for many workers?

I dont know I would have to test. Do you mean there is only 48 workers possible at max?

No. That ‘count’ value seems to affect the blocking/nonblocking nature -I cant figure out exactly how.
However, I am no the wrong track.

The environment variable UV_THREADPOOL_SIZE defaults to 4
I think we should increase it.
I think I better shut up here - I am not adding any value.
