How does failover work when two VxS units fail and there is only one VxS failover?

Two or more VxS units fail that are being monitored by a single VxS failover.
The VxS failover unit will record all data sources from all of the other VxS units it is monitoring up to its maximum capacity of 450 Mbps or 300 cameras.
*NOTE: In the example shown below, if one VxS is recording 10 cameras and the second VxS is recording 20 cameras
and both units fail, the failover VxS will record all 30 cameras, as long as the total capacity of 450 Mbps is not reached
and the total camera count is 300 or less.
*NOTE: If you have more than one VxS configured as a failover and added to the same recorder group with other VxS failover units,
then when VxS units fail that are being monitored, their data sources will be distributed between ALL the failover VxS units in the group
based on bitrate of each data source.
*NOTE: As an example, if you have 3 VxS units all configured to be failover units and they are all added to the same failover group and they are set
to monitor two VxS recorders with each one currently recording 90 cameras. If VxS unit one fails, then the 90 cameras that it was recording
are now moved to the three failover VxS units in the group and are divided based on bitrate, so if the cameras all had the same bitrate, each
failover VxS would end up getting about 30 cameras each.
