Article Summary

Unlike a State Diagram, a process:

  • allows using the full set of nodes
  • for a stable system operation has a recommended number of tasks limit of (except final nodes) 100 000 tasks.
Tasks limit

Please, note that actually there is no limit for tasks number in a process, and this number is a conservative recommendation for businesses, which is given considering possible cluttering occurring in some nodes
