How many Rendezvous and Relay connections should I allow
I'm working on a Rendezvous/Relay server that will be sitting on the internet and potentially serving a lot (1000+) of peers. I've been wondering about the "max connections" setting in the network configurator.
What is a reasonable number to set as the max number of connections?
When peers connect to a rendezvous, are they permanently connected or is it more of a "check back every 5 minutes" type deal?
In this case setting max connections to 100 would seam reasonable. Of course, if peers stay permanently connected, then I'd need to set ~1000 as the max connection value. Could this be a problem?
Is it reasonable to set a max connections value of 1,000? 10,000?
What will this affect? Bandwidth? Memory? CPU time?
thanks in advance,
your insights will be greatly appreciated
