This section explains how to inspect and configure the maximum number of consensus instances at any time for a group. This maximum is referred to as the event horizon for a group, and is the maximum number of consensus instances that the group can execute in parallel. This enables you to fine tune the performance of your Group Replication deployment. For example, the default value of 10 is suitable for a group running on a LAN, but for groups operating over a slower network such as a WAN, increase this number to improve performance.
