I'm wondering whether it is possible to parallelise the load of components from RTC. I can only find references to concurrent connections to the server, but nothing about concurrent connections from a single client.

To clarify the question, I have a stream with seven or eight components in it, and I would like to load each component simultaneously (rather than sequentially, as Eclipse seems to do it).

The RTC Eclipse client downloads files in parallel.  By default, 10 threads are used.  You can modify this with the Team->Jazz_Source_Control->Content_Transfer preference.

Hi Peter,
                 Concuurent connections is possible from a machine - you can open 2 different workspaces at the same time.

What do you exactly mean by parallelise the checkout?

Hi Valli, I've just updated my question to clarify, let me know if you need any more information.

...whether it is possible to parallelise the checkout of components from RTC...
Team Concert does not have a checkout. In this area the only commands are CheckIn and Lock. And both are affecting file(s) and not components.
...concurrent connections from a single client...
Yes, you can open more than one eclipse and connect to the same server; you can use the same or different account and additionally you can login with firefox and IE client.

I apologise—I come from an SVN background—I meant "parallelise the load of components from RTC".
