1E 8.1 (on-premises)


The maximum number of machines to wake up in a single call.


Nomad integration with WakeUp enables Nomad to share content from its devices that are holding particular content, even if those devices are offline. One reason why peers in the local subnet may not respond to the request even though they have content in their caches is that they are offline (shutdown, in hibernate or sleep mode). However, if WakeUp is integrated, the Nomad client would know which offline device has the content and can wake it up when it queried Content Distribution.

The wake up list is maintained by Content Distribution and is the same list that Single Site Download (SSD) uses. Separate lists of peers are returned for subnet and site. This feature requires Nomad SSD to be enabled, Content Distribution and a NightWatchman infrastructure. The feature is enabled during installation of NightWatchman Management Center. Please refer to Nomad Preparation for requirements.

Registry value

Default value


Installer property



Sets the maximum number of machines to wake up in one call, for subnet and site separately. (So up to twice this number of requests is sent in total if WakeUp is enabled for both subnet and site.) The next batch is launched, if necessary, after a re-election (usually a periodic election).

The value cannot be greater than MaxDevicesFromAE, and hence itself cannot be more than 20.
