Cisco Genie fails to parse output when using > 1 inventory worker

The original issue was here: https://github.com/nornir-automation/nornir/issues/440

Looking for discussion on possible work-arounds

pyATS | Genie developer here;

From this

try:
    # Test of whether their is a parser for the given command (will return Exception if fails)
    get_parser(command, device)
    parsed_output = device.parse(command, output=raw_output)
    return parsed_output
except Exception:
    return raw_output

I am also confused why it would not work ? The output is provided to the parser, it isn’t using the connection.

The thread limitation is related to the connection to the device, which is also mostly working today. (Since ~July)

Is there a quick way for us to replicate this ?

@jeaubin Okay, let’s move this back to GitHub:

As it is probably easier to track / work-on there.

I reproduced this earlier so I will post a test case there.
