Just so, how many people can a server handle?
1 Answer. On Windows there are some resource limits which might cause you problems, but 10,000 connections is easy. In fact I've run more than 70,000 connections on a pretty low spec VM, see here http://www.lenholgate.com/blog/2005/11/windows-tcpip-server-performance.html for details.
Secondly, can multiple clients connect to same socket? 5 Answers. A server socket listens on a single port. Multiple connections on the same server can share the same server-side IP/Port pair as long as they are associated with different client-side IP/Port pairs, and the server would be able to handle as many clients as available system resources allow it to.
Regarding this, how many computers can connect to a server?
7 Answers. There is no limit to the number of computers, however there is a limit to the number of simultaneous connections because of the possibility of ephemeral port exhaustion. More computers usually means more connections so there is a practical limit to how many computers will typically share the same IP address.
How many concurrent requests can a server handle?
5 Answers. You can have 1,000 concurrent requests per second, depending on what is being requested.
