Right now, the only way is to work with different rule bases and working
memories. Even using agenda-groups or rule-flow, rules are still being
eagerly evaluated, as this is how standard Rete works.
The problem of creating and canceling too many activations is a known
problem and the only way around it right now is sequential mode, but
sequential mode has some restrictions on what you can do. For instance, you
must work with a stateless working memory and can not modify/retract facts
in your rules to work with sequential mode, but it will give you big
We are evaluating the possibility of creating physical network
partitions for next version, but that will require some R&D yet.

My bulking logic (I didnt have collect when I started with 3.0) starts a

potential cross product since drools would produce C!/N!(C-N)!
Then once the bulk for a given criteria is create I have a second rule

What I am basically seeing is that asserting a fact that would for

perfect match, causes many of the bulking and breaking rule activations to

of thousands of facts I thought that if I could stage the activation
would increase processing speed.
