Hope you can help!
We have the following setup:
Cisco 7835 MCS Server
DMM - Cisco 7835 MCS Server
SaS - Cisco 7835 MCS Server
External Web Server Spec
1 x CPU 2400Mhz 4 Core
Fibre Channel Disks
We use HTTP progressive download with SaS being the front end player and having the extenral web server using IIS as a web server to host FLV video content. The video content is set at the following:
Format: Flash video 9 (.flv)
Maximum combined audio and video Bitrate: 500 kbps
Frame rate: 30 fps
Maximum height: 268 pixels
Maximum width: 480 (for 16x9 ratio), 360 (for 4:3 ratio)
File size 25 MB
We ran a stress test yesterday by asking 150 users to click on a specific video at a specific time, 90% of our users reported juddering and problems viewing the video.
Does anyone know what kind of conurrent connections this enviroment should be able to handle?
Has anyone used Show and Share with HTTP progressive downloads? and if so have you found there is a limit to the number of concurrent connections?
In this type of scenario, most of the performance specs should be depending on the external web server rather than on the Show and Share box.
Do you see any difference if you run the same load test accessing the external server directly rather then passing through the Show And Share portal?
