Hardware Benchmarks


Do you have general benchmarks for maximum connections on your server?



The concurrency you can expect per Red5 Pro Server depends on two major factors, the specs of the hardware you deploy on and the quality of stream you are sending.  Concurrent connections are the number of connections occurring at the same time where a connection consists of 1 broadcaster OR 1 subscriber.
Our latest benchmarks can be found in our release notes.

Tests were run against an AWS m5.large instance (2 CPUs with 8GB memory, 2GB allocated to java_heap).

Publishing a 240p (426x240, 200 kbps) stream via RTMP, we were able to achieve the following while still maintaining quality of stream:

WebRTC = 500 Subscribers

RTSP (Mobile) = 2,000 Subscribers

RTMP = 1,200 Subscribers

The same server type can support approximately 60-70, 480p RTMP publishers or 30-40 480p RTC publishers.
