the last time I tried it, it took 5+ hours for 5 computers.
Multicast performance isn’t really dependent on an awesome server - that’s part of the method. The server only sends one time and many receive.
Your problem is probably poor-quality network equipment you were using for multicast. Higher-end network equipment like Cisco Catalyst would not have these issues. The cheaper the network equipment, the worse multicast will be. It’s total-internal-throughput that matters. If you have an el-cheapo crap 10 dollar switch that is advertised as 1Gbps, it may only have 2 or 2.5Gbps total-internal-throughput. The max it can transmit in and out of all ports simultaneously at any one time. To truly take advantage of multicast, if your 1Gbps switch has 8 ports, it needs 8Gpbs total-internal-throughput. If it’s a 48 port 1Gbps switch, then 48Gbps of total internal throughput.
