    Chat room with ~200 users?

    kmbp

      Hi!

       

      Does it make any sense to create a roboust chat application with stratus?

      What if there are hundreds of people in the same room? It means hundreds of running netstreams.

       

      Will it work without constant latency/stability problems?

       

      Thanks!

          This would be a lot of overkill becouse for every client who connects to the chat room; each connected client must have an incoming stream listening to the connecting client. So when you have like 200 users connected, every client participating in the chat-session should have arround 203-205 streams open (depending on functionality). And I don't think that is verry performance-friendly. For these solutions I would go for flash media server.
