Hi, I use “partition by range” to partition 20 wedge to 5,when I save the wedged geometry, it left only 5 geometry. how can I get all 20 wedge result?
the main things I want is: when the Top runs all the 20 task at the same time, may use to much memory, so I want them only run 5 tasks once. just like what “slots per work item” do.

A partitioner node won't have any impact on the scheduling of work items. Partitions are used to wait for multiple upstream work items to complete, and/or to merge attributes from those work items. A partition is like any other work, except it has multiple upstream dependencies and merged attributes. Other PDG nodes will generate from a partition just like they would from a regular work item.
To limit the number of tasks that run, you should be using the scheduler options. They can be set globally on the scheduler or a per-node basis by adding scheduler properties onto that node as spare parms: https://www.sidefx.com/docs/houdini/tops/schedulers.html#jobparms
