I am pointing multiple publish instances with single dispatcher. What is the maximum number of publish instances I can point.

Is it recommended to use the above scenario?

This will result in single point failure. If your apache server goes down(though chances are less), the entire site goes down and hence not recommended. you need atleast one more apache server  when you have more than one publish server. The typical recommendation is 1:1. Please refer to https://cqdump.wordpress.com/2015/01/12/connecting-dispatchers-and-publishers/ for discussion on that.

Hi Selva,

 There is no rule of max number of publish instances per dispatcher. However as Kalyan mentioned one dispatcher per publish instance and then load balancing it is the best and recommended approach.
