I am running Red5 RTMP server on a Linux dedicated server which has 16 CPU cores.

The same server is also running PHP and MySQL.

In the Red5 configuration, what is the maximum that I should set the following values to for optimal performance on the basis that the majority (call it 80%) of the websites load will be on the Red5 server?

rtmp.io_threads=16
rtmp.connect_threads=4
rtmp.send_buffer_size=271360
rtmp.receive_buffer_size=65536

I would suggest 1x-2x no. of cores for each type of jetty threads
And customizing network buffers in Linux instead of on each SW you have.
Network buffers consume RAM so they should be as small as possible (bandwidth x delay)
say you expect 256kbps stream over wimax
256kbx1s=32kB
or set it blindly to 65535 to avoid incompatibilities with broke firewalls in home routers...

also if you do not upload from webcams receive buffer can be one system page - 4kB

I am sorry but I do not understand your reply.

What is io_threads and what is connect_threads?  What are their optimal values for a 16 CPU server?

Connect further...control easier

With the ATEN CE624, you can now enjoy a high-quality visual experience powered by HDBaseT technology and the convenience of a single Cat6 cable to transmit uncompressed video with zero latency and multi-streaming for dual-view applications where remote access is required.

two threads of each type on each processor.
reasonably minimal net buffers.

PS send/receive buffers can be tuned globally using sysctl

You may need to increase thread counts if you encounter connection problems (check netstat -s time after time)
