May be this error causing by server or may be by network client, we don't know exactly what part of software cannot process many request simultaneously (because its not our software).
But we implemented several options those help to avoid this problem:
UNC test mode
This parameter defines behavior of UNC tests. Select 1 of 3 options:
Normal - HostMonitor can start many tests simultaneously.
OnePerServer - HostMonitor will start only 1 test per server at one time, but can start several tests for different servers at the same time.
OneByOne - only 1 attempt at one time (one attempt means - if "UNC test retries" value greater than 1, HostMonitor tries to get information from 1st server; if this try failed, HostMonitor will pause test for this server and will try to check another servers, after 900ms HostMonitor returns to 1st server and performs 2nd attempt).
UNC test retries
Define how many times HostMonitor will try to get information from server (in one test)
Options located on Miscellaneous page in the Options dialog.
