    Default Memory usage - Live and VOD

    Hi, looking at the documentation here:

    I've founded that:
    "For example, a 500 kbps stream will consume the following amount of memory given the default settings above:
    (500/(1024*8)) * 10 * 10 = 6 MB of memory"

    That means that if wee have a server with 6GB of RAM, and without any active stream it has only 5GB of free RAM we could only handle 416 simultaneous clients receiving our HLS stream if we are streaming at 1000Kbps?

    It could be great to have this very clear to know how much load our server could handle.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hello there and welcome to the Wowza support forum.

    The number of simultaneous clients supported would increase by modifying the cupertinoChunkDurationTarget setting.

    You can use the Load Test Tool to generate RTMP load on a single server that's running Wowza Streaming Engine to test configuration and performance:

    Kind regards,
