Not sure what you mean - do you mean a limit on the number of groups a source can stream traffic for. Well as far as i know the only real limiting factor is really CPU/Memory issues on the source and the routers and also the available bandwidth from the source.

Obviously there is a finite number of available multicast addresses but most servers/routers/links would fail long before that limit was reached.

Is this what you were asking ?

I'm studying for the BSCI so I was making some research on real life applications for Multicast... somebody told me that Multicast had a finite number of clients per group, but I didn't find anything on Cisco about it...just as you said the limiting is CPU/Mem or available multicast Addresses, which is not a concern right now....

thanks for your reply
