THe feature itself really dose not exists as a whole, you can set up relays to have a mount be hosted on more then one sever, these servers can be anywhere. The servers in the network is not the issue in hosting, it the bandwidth you have access too. The servers can handle a larger capacity then most  bandwidth can handle.


  We have a fall back server we can turn on  when we get up to 75% our bandwidth. This is handle by a simple php script that keeps track of number of  users that will trigger the fallback bases on the bandwidth of all the stream uses.  And it will route new connection to the offsite server to offload some of the bandwidth to them. We don't like to do this because of the over head in cost this causes.   


Other this this we never seen a purpose to use more then 1 master server and slaves on demand :) 


It take planing and bandwidth management to keep  it all running ritght. One rule is don't use more then you need.

Hi all,


I’m looking for some documentation about icecast clustering. Is this feature exists ?


Under this research, i would like to build a cluster to put a lot of streaming channels under a virtual network ip.
