Question re speed of droplet

Hi, I’m running a Jamulus server - http://llcon.sourceforge.net/ - for real time music collaboration between members of a rock band during lockdown! The server mixes audio sent over the internet and returns it to clients and so it’s a CPU and bandwidth intensive application. Better performance would reduce the latency making it easier to play together It’s on a basic-level droplet. Could you let me know if there are alternatives products which might give better performance. Thanks.

Tom, is your droplet a barebones droplet with just the server? Would you be willing to create a snapshot and share? It would save a bunch of pain on my end setting up a server. cheers, mike conant 207 671-2389 mikeconant@mikeconant.com

Hello, @tomsymonds

What you can do is to monitor the performance of the droplet and see if there are some other processes that are consuming CPU and memory as well. I will suggest you to check on this article:

This can help you to optimize the performance on the server and make the overall experience better.

As for some Jamulus alternatives, I’m afraid there are not many which can be close to the same setup but you can check out Jam Link as well.
