Hi. If I have a number of MPEG4 live feeds coming into a single streaming server, that is a decent size..32GB RAM, quad processor etc, how many connections should I have come in?
Is there a limit or a recommendation of limit for performance. I want to publish in formats for iPhone, blackberry, Flash etc from the same server. Basically looking to see if I should connect 1, 10 or 100 feeds to a single server. thanks in advance.
The number of incoming streams is limited by cpu and ram, whereas outgoing streams is usually limited by bandwidth. So a very robust server is required, a late model quad or dual quad cpu, 8-16g ram, 64bit OS/Java, and
well tuned. You have to test to find the limit. I have heard of over 100 incoming streams on very robust servers
