I have a question regarding hardware requirements of a virtual machine. Last week we had a livestream with 150 concurrent viewers at 1.6Mbit/sec. The server is on a 1GB line so bandwidth was not an issue.
when we reach the 130 concurrent viewers the video was pauzed every 5 seconds. While the audio was still going al long. Sometimes the complete stream stopped for a couple of seconds..
We are running Wowza on Ubuntu 14 in VirtualBox
Network: 1Gb Ethernet (shared)
Should this be enough to handle 150 concurrent viewers? And what kind of hardware is needed to server 800 mbit's of data?
Thanks in advance
