Listeners...How many?

Hi,
Quick question: with a shoutcast sever with a configuration of intel Core i9-9900K and 32RAM, how many listeners can I have connected without problem?
Thanks

that gigabit internet (940000 kbps)will be your limit.
/
the bitrate (? kbps) of your stream will determine how many listeners fit in that limit

there are calculators around here that can do the math for ya.

/* all that hardware is going to waste on a dnas - imho */

So I think the math is 940000kbps divided by 128kbps which is my stream, right?
That'll be almost 7,000 listeners. Am I correct?

What do you mean by /* all that hardware is going to waste on a dnas - imho */

The hardware is way too much for the DNAS.

7000 listeners @ 128kbps -- that's what 1000mbps gigabit ethernet gets you

100mbps fast ethernet - 700 listeners @ 128kbps

10mbps 10baseT - 70 listeners @ 128kbps

...and that's your outbound (upload) bandwidth that matters here

Math is pretty simple

Upload / bitrate = max listeners.

And always leave at least 10 % as overhead.

if your upload is 512 Kbps
and your stream is 128kbps
you can handle 3 listeners max.
4 would kill your connection.
