practical CPU and bandwidth limits for 4 peers

    Some of the more tech-y and adventurous members of the Baltimore Mens’ Chorus hope to set up p2p of three or four peers, at least. As a practical matter, what are the minimum processor requirements to be such a peer (processor speed, memory, number of cores)? And if one has upload speeds in the 5mbps range, can they still be a peer?

    Thank you for your feedback! -Brian


    Regarding bandwidth a 96 kbps mono stream at 128 samples network buffer requires about 250 kbps. In that context 5 Mbps upload is more than enough. Regarding machine (CPU) performance it depends on numerous factors which cannot be clearly determined. We saw that the amount of cores has a major impact (four is typically better than two etc.). Well, at the end it’s always a trial-and-error situation especially with many peers.


    Thank you , Alex- good to know.
