Question:
I got the error message "Too many outputs" when adding outputs to a range. Is there a limitation in the RDK?

Response:
The number of outputs is not limited, but the number of outputs in any one range is limited to 100. If you don't need more than 100 outputs in a single summary trend graph, then simply add the outputs as individual outputs and the RDK will accept them.

The purpose of an output range is to let you prepare a summary graph for all outputs in the range. As you add more and more outputs in a single graph, it becomes progressively harder to see any meaningful comparisons between them. Even as many as 100 outputs in a single range is quite unusual.

If you truly need summary graphs for more than 100 outputs, then you need to generate the graphs yourself, possibly using some third-party graphing engine. Otherwise, simply add the outputs as individual outputs, or group them in ranges of no more than 100.
