Before getting too deep into the bits let's make sure we're using the same terminology for things. There are 2 main ways to deploy RockNSM:
- Single Node
- Multi Node
A "Single Node Deployment" is used to deploy one standalone ROCK sensor. This is the simplest scenario and the most common use case.
A "Muti-Node Deployment" is used to interconnect a collection of ROCK sensors that have already been installed and can talk to each other on the same network.
This requires a bit more work up front to deploy, but is allows for a lot of scaling and flexibility to share workload across multiple boxes.
