View Full Version : 32 user limit
16th March 2004, 22:21
The READMe of shoutcast says be aware of the LIMIT for more than 32 simultaneous streams.
Can you provide more info about that, how to check= ?

What are you streaming from. A server from your cable or dsl connection. Or are you using a full bandwidth provider?
Additionally this.. www.radiotoolbox.com has some tools to determine how many listeners you can serve.

32 is just the default value of the config file. You must figure out how much UPstream bandwidth you have, and how many listeners you can support at your choosen broadcast bitrate (could be more or less than 32 depending on where your DNAS is installed, like DJHotIce said).

Here is what im talking about, from the README file :
"If you intend on broadcasting to more than 64 listeners, you may also want to look into unlimiting the descriptors allocated to your shell. The commands lim
it, ulimit, and unlimit may be of some assistance to you.
On Linux, I have a 100Mb bandwith, but the shell will limit something ? uhu ?

depends on ram, and speed. also bandwidth availability.

if you are unsure. I'd set this to a value arround 10 or less. IF broadcasting on cable at 128 try 2. IT all depends on many varitables but most you can rule out :)

Hey Eric, sorry, I don't know about the shell stuff; hopfully someone can answer that. But I do know that one DNAS program can handle hundreds, if not thousands, of connections.

The program yes, but maybe not the shell !

Let us know if you figure it out.

well when i type "ulimit" in the shell, it says "unlimited".
Maybe on some configs, it is limited.
Im on Linux Redhat

there is no such as unlimited (unless you actually own AOL)
Looks like somebody edited the page. Now it says Hi FUNNY
