Please see the minimum system requirements to the host server for running Flussonic Media Server in the table below. In reality, the requirements may slightly vary depending on the number of concurrent connections to Flussonic server.
When calculating host server capabilities, all resources required for normal functioning of the operating system and other services running parallel to Flussonic must be taken into account.
Minimum system requirements
|Concurrent connections||10||100||1 000||5 000+|
|Processor||Any||Single core||Quad core (Xeon/Core i7)||Dual core Xeon E5|
|RAM||128 MB||256 MB||1024 MB||16 GB|
|Free disk space||40 MB||40 MB||40 MB||40 MB|
|Network adapter||100 Mbit/s||1 Gbit/s||1 Gbit/s Server NIC||10 Gbit/s Intel|
|Operating system||Ubuntu Linux|
For stable streaming video playback with a high volume of concurrent connections, we recommend distributing the traffic load among several real servers. For detailed information on clustering of Flussonic servers, please see the Clustering section.
Please note that when files on disk are used as the data source, the disk subsystem bears the main burden. Consequently, when planning the host server architecture for running Flussonic Media Server, special attention should be paid to the hard disk performance. For more detail on this subject, please see file streaming.
If the host server is protected with a firewall, exception rules must be set for ports and protocols used by Flussonic Media Server.
To validate your license key Flussonic Media Server must have access to the Internet via HTTP and HTTPS.
