This article is a quick peek into how Loomiere 2.0 is (currently) serving close to 3k active streams from a single server in production which is restricted to 1.6 Gbps of bandwidth (we are currently negotiating with our ISP to raise this limitation). All these statistics represent a single machine, in real time, over a period of 12 hours, equipped as follows:
- 2 x Xeon Dual Core (with HyperThreading) at 3.2GHz
- 16 GB RAM
- 15 x 1TB HDD (7200rpm)
- 4 x 1GB NIC’s
- This system runs on Ubuntu 10.04.1 LTS.
OK so here are the graphs:
- Cpu load.
- Network traffic (i.e. all interfaces cumulated).
- Active connections (i.e. concurrent streams).
- Memory usage.
The graphs may not yet be as stable as I would wish at the moment since I am still testing this setup as well as Loomiere itself, but I think soon I will have a more stable configuration and also some time to comment on these graphs.
