Queen as Worker node

Can we make the Queen node also as a worker node??

If it’s NO,  please explain us the challenges.

If it’s YES, could please provide us the detail steps (precautions) before adding Queen as worked node.

Re: Queen as Worker node

You are proabably trying to make maximum use of your resources.  Yes - Theoratically - We can use Queen as Loader or Woreker. But this will make your Queen as "Weakest Link of your Chain". You also might have to consider - The DISK / CPU Capacity of Queen - Your RF strategy - Queen Failover plan (where Queen VWorker will be migrated Vs Other Vworkers). You may end up impacting Queen performance of core queen functions by sharing the CPU.

The queen also functions as a loader. The queen can never be used as a worker (for failover and performance reasons).
