max_concurrent_merge int Maximum number of concurrent merge processes. A value of 0 for this property means that there is no limit to the number of concurrent merge processes running at any given time. This property sets a limit as to the number of concurrent merge processes that can be run against a merge publication at one time. If there are more snapshot processes scheduled at the same time than the value allows to run, then the excess jobs will be put into a queue and wait until a currently-running merge process finishes.
max_concurrent_dynamic_snapshots int Maximum number of concurrent dynamic snapshot sessions that can be running against the merge publication. If 0, there is no limit to the maximum number of concurrent dynamic snapshot sessions that can run simultaneously against the publication at any given time. This property sets a limit as to the number of concurrent snapshot processes that can be run against a merge publication at one time. If there are more snapshot processes scheduled at the same time than the value allows to run, then the excess jobs will be put into a queue and wait until a currently-running merge process finishes.
