Currently I'm looking for a solution for tracking my devices, I'm interested on this project but I'd like to know whats the maximum capacity of gps devices this Traccar can handle without hanging?
Thanks In advance.
It depends on your server specs and configuration. Traccar has been successfully tested with 100k devices. It can handle 8000 messages a second and possibly more with right set up.
What was the server configuration for your test of 100k devices?
As far as I remember, it was Amazon EC2 server with 64GB RAM and SSD hard drives.
Was the DB running on the same machine?
I think we tested both options local MySQL database and Amazon database option.
Do you recommend database on the same instance or a separate instance is better?
Database on the same server is recommended.
