i'm putting together a streaming relay network for the linux audio 
developer's conference #2 (http://www.zkm.de/lad), and i was 
wondering how much cpu power will be required on the master server.

we need to record 2 48k stereo signals simultaneously and encode 
them into three streams each:

2x 54kbit/s 22k05 mono
2x 112kbit/s 48k stereo
2x 192kbit/s 48k stereo

it would be very nice if the same box could handle the streaming to 
between 5 and 8 relay servers, so that we have only one single point 
of failure.

how much cpu and memory do you think we'll need to be on the *very 
safe* side ?

thanks in advance,
