How many artist accounts can Jamroom Support?
Jamroom is really only limited by the hardware platform you put Jamroom on, the number of Artist Accounts your Jamroom install is licensed for, as well as the amount of bandwidth available to it for streaming audio. There are Jamroom Sites that are hosting well over 15,000 artist accounts on a single server.
Jamroom makes extensive use of a MySQL database, so as you grow larger one of the things to keep an eye on is your MySQL resource usage - you may end up needing to increase the number of available MySQL connections. If you get errors from Jamroom that it is unable to connect to the database, this could be the problem. See the MySQL Too Many Connections document for more information.
Also, if you are using the “Jamroom Lofi Creator”, a fast processor is recommended if you are running a large system, since the conversion time can take a while. The faster the processor, the shorter the amount of time for conversion, and the less likely it will be that your system will slow down at all. It typically takes about 35 seconds to create a LoFi song from a 6 Megabyte HiFi song file on a Pentium 4 2.4Ghz machine.
