What is the maximum number of monitor sessions that a nexus 5k can handle?

does remote vs local vs both span have any bearing on the max?

    I believe a maximum of two sessions regardless whether local or remote.
    LVL 50

    2 (active) span sessions.

    IIRC, you can 16 defined. But only 2 active at any one time.
