To my knowledge, C2 has no mechanism to throttle the number of contracts a subscriber trades in a system. If the strategy instrument is thinly traded, a large group of orders coming to the market at the same time could negatively impact results. Limiting the number of subscribers does not solve the problem.

If you start to think about this kind of potential issues, you should find something smarter than C2.
A machine hosting the system, which knows who are its clients, and knows the overall allowed quantity per signal.
Then this machine act like a scheduler, sending signal for x qty to client 1, y to client 2.
With NT on both sides, a not so hard to code client-server application.
