Package Measurements for Online Radio Station

If I take the very beginning droplet and install Azuracast or Shoutcast and run the stream at 128kbps/192kbps/320kbps then how many listers can listen live? I need to calculate with these three different bit rates. Thanks

Memory: 1GB, vCPUs: 1vCPU, Transfer: 1TB, SSD Disk: 25GB

How can I monitor? How can I get this number of audience in starting? So, I asking the official support member to submit their analysis statements.

Hi there @mohsinworld,

I have not done any load tests with Azuracast to test how many users it could handle on a $5 Droplet, but what I could suggest is starting with a small Droplet and then actively monitor your CPU and RAM usage. Then as your audience grows, and you start to consume more resources, you could scale up your Droplet up at any time.
