> Hello! I was just wondering how should we go about finding the maximum number of commands running at a time. I can't seem to wrap my head around trying to find it (unless i'm thinking too much into it) Any hints would be great..
It's a good question because it demonstrates the need for spending plenty of time designing your programs and their data well before you start coding (not suggesting that you're not doing that). Unsure if this helps, or if it's already obvious, but if you know the number of processes running at any particular time (each minute, when cron 'wakes' up to consider new activity), then it's easy to remember the maximum of all those values.
