HPSS (Darter and Nautilus): Is the HPSS system able to be accessed by more than one process at a time?

There is nothing that should prevent you from running a script that creates multiple simultaneous connections to HPSS. The HPSS system administrator recommends that you should not create more than 1 or 2 connections at a time. Every time you introduce a new instance, the performance of the overall system is degraded.
