Server Bottlenecks (other than BW)

Recommended Posts

Obviously bandwidth/network is the number one bottleneck when it comes to streaming servers(audio), behind that what is the next bottleneck?


I've been trying to find detailed information on average ram/cpu usage per listener. But am coming up empty so far, other than vague information like zero, none, very little. no facts/numbers. The only number I could find was in relation to port 80 listeners takign approx 20-25mb RAM per spot.


Any help host providers/big station people?

When a massive surge of listeners connects at one time, it usually slows down the server, but I wouldnt really say bottlenecks it.


DDos attacks, however thats bandwidth/network. Other than that, there really isnt much to say.
