    Cirrus limitations we must know

    chr1st0scli
      Hello people,

      we are using the Cirrus  service as a rendezvous point, not with RTMFP groups, to establish peer  to peer connections based on RTMFP, i.e. one to one conversations. We have built a  service around this and we wish to know about some details that might  affect the workings of our service. Would you please answer the  questions below if possible?

      Are there any limitations we should be aware of?  E.g. is there a limit on the number of connections we can establish to  Cirrus? I saw somewhere on this forum someone mentioning a 50 connections limit but we disproved that by actually opening 54 simultaneous connections. Are there any other limitations?

      Can we publish a service that uses Cirrus as a rendezvous point or is it against Adobe policy?

      Will  the Cirrus server go offline when RTMFP is included in the next Adobe  media server version? If so, will we know soon enough so that we can  make the transition smoothly without having our service stopped and how  will this be communicated on time? Will it be emailed to all Adobe  developers? Is RTMFP already included in media server and we unfortunately happen not to know about it?

      Thank you for your time and looking forward to hearing from you all.

          Cirrus (codename) has no limits to the number of concurrent users you can have connected with your developer key, although we ask that you let us know if you'll have more than about 10,000 concurrent users.  and we reserve the right to throttle or block any developer who causes a disruptive or egregious load to the system, but we've only ever had to do that on one occasion. 

           

          Flash Media Server 4 includes support for RTMFP.  the developer edition of FMS 4 has a limit of 50 connections, which is probably what you were seeing.

           

          please consult the Cirrus (codename) Terms of Use that you agreed to when you signed up for your developer key for the limitations of using the service.

            1) although we ask that you let us know if you'll have more than about 10,000 concurrent users ...

             

                Ok, but what will you do when we will let you know this info??

             

            2) but we've only ever had to do that on one occasion...

             

                When and why???

             

             

             

            Thx

              Where to write to? It is possible to have unlimited RTMFP server in own disposal to avoid overloading your data center? Thanks
