I tried seraching for scalabilty with SignalR at this forum and also on github wiki, though I found few references to scalability or load etc. , dint find a straight answer.
I want to understand "How well does SignalR scale to handle large data volume as well as high user loads >1000 "
I saw that IIS tuning and ASP.net concurrent users limit tuning etc. however I am not sure if thats the only limiting factor when signalR scalability is concerned.

You're right, the other thing that affects scalability is your hardware. What kind of information are you lookin for?

I want to know if SignalR framework would anyways affect the scalability of application ! does it hinder it anyway ?
If from a single server app, I put app in a web farm scenario... would everything related to signalR would work the same way.

Are you asking if having many connections will impact the scalibilty of your application? Yes it will, like anything else. Do you have a more specific question?

I am asking " would using SignalR within my application affect app's scalability in any manner ?"
of course if there is any problem with the way I have coded for app, it would but if I assume it is near perfect then can SignalR be a performance bottleneck.

If people are connected it can affect the scalability of your application as connections live longer, but I'm still not sure what you're really asking for. Our performance page on the wiki (https://github.com/SignalR/SignalR/wiki/Performance)
shows the default limits on IIS (5000 concurrent connections by default on windows server).

I plan to implement Signal in a Windows Service running on my company's server to communicate with 3000 clients initially an then expand to approximately 8000-10000 clients in the near future (maybe more in the longterm).
Will I be able to do this with SignalR? Since I am running this in a Windows Service, do I need to also configure IIS? What scalability issues should I be paying attention to?
