[Spread-users] problem trying to msgs to multiple spread instances

I'm not sure, but having the same IP listed in a config multiple times sounds like it might not work.  I'm willing to bet that Spread uses IPs w/o their associated ports as unique daemons IDs.

You definitely can run multiple disjoint configurations on the same node at the same time, but having the same IP appear multiple times within one config file is probably breaking things.  Although, I could be wrong.

Hi All,

I am having a problem when trying to run spread with multiple nodes and several spread Daemons in each node. I am trying to send a continuous stream of msgs to the cluster and measure the average throughput. As long as I run only one daemon per node, things work fine. But when I try more than one daemon per node none of my client instances receive messages (actually things stop working as soon as I change the config file to have more than one segment with the same IP and different port). But I don't see any exceptions. Have any of you faced a similar problem ? 

(I have attached my spread.conf file  since probably I may have done some mis-configuration)
