we have the same issue with fms archtecture , and we are doing some research about the architecture of fms servers.
We also use FMIS, but for many to many live streams (video chat rooms). And we are planning to put logic on FMIS, and streams on Flash Media Streaming Server, what do you think about it?
One thing that must be changed is runtimesize in application.xml. It's only 1mb, increase as required.
I also have problems with a chat with >1500 users, connection drops and other stuff, ending to a "core has suffered 1 failure" and the core restarting and all the users being disconnected.
I think it's a matter of configuring the server just because there are plenty of server resources left, but I'm lost here like you are.
Maybe there's something to do with the maxiothreads (server.xml) I have posted recently.
Any help would be really appreciated as well.
Do you know how to detect if connection is dropped because of FMS?
Unfortunately, I have no clue about this.
What I only know is that I'm having 1800 users connected and suddenly, it drops to 600 and eventually, to 0 (core no longer active)
But there is no log while the connections are dropped. No clues.
Seems that FMIS is not default configured to handle such amount of users and some tweaking is required.
Ok, guys. But anyone of you got situation when one stream listen more than 100 people and it began to slow down and twitch. If you need some additional info let me know.
