From reading through the forums it seems that one server seems to max out around 100 concurrent incoming streams. We are currently right around that number and slightly over at times and are trying to develop a plan to go to 200+ simultaneous incoming streams. Is it possible to have multiple origin servers where all broadcasters can connect to one rtmp URL? Maybe in a 2 origin and 1 edge configuration where all users connect their encoders to the same rtmp URL. Then, a load balance type system routes the incoming stream to one origin or the other?
One more quick question... If our server's memory and CPU resources max out at 100 concurrent incoming "live-record" streams, would we be able to have more if they were simply "live" incoming streams (i.e. not recording to hard drive)? Basically the question is, does it take more RAM and/or CPU to do "live-record" vs. just "live"? And if so, would rough percentage increase in concurrent incoming connections would we be able possibly see (5% more, 50% more?)?
