"Unlimited" depends on the hardware SmartFoxServer is installed on (the more CPUs and memory, the better it is), and on the tasks it must accomplish to (simple chat? turn-based game with light server-side processing? Realtime game with heavy server-side logic? etc.).
Check the following white papers for more info:

million or billion

Millions and billions of concurrent connections are not of this galaxy :)
The concept of concurrent connections is very different from the typical website visit statistics.
Even the larger websites that have millions of visits per hour hardly reach 50-100k concurrent connections.
The same happens for the most popular MMOs out there. If you do a little research on the web you will see it by yourself.

Again thanks . I have one more quire I want to perches SmartFoxServer Pro - Unlimited users for that I have best machine too. Actually I want to build up a turn base or multilayer game like (Car race) with the A/V chat. So in that case can I manage that traffic on my one sever machine easily ?? I can’t use more thane one server machine. For example I have 300,000 gamer online each with A/V chat ! with smartFox we do that ??

you will have to build you application and benchmark it and see how many users you can have online. If it gets below what you expected then you'll have to cluster the servers and that is a bit of work.
Its impossible to say how many users you application can handle. Its like saying how many applications can you run on Windows at the same time. I guess unlimited but if you run a million photoshops it will not run that fast.

I wish you the best luck possible with your application but 300k concurrent users is an unreal number. Don't confuse real-simultaneous-users with websites stats like visits, page views etc... they are different orders of magnitude.

Just to give you an idea a single A/V chat can take 256Kbit of bandwidth (or more)
For 300.000 users you would need --> 76.8 Gb/s of bandwidth :shock:

It's very good to think big but it's also necessary to start small ( 1 server, a decent amount of bandwidth) and scale as the traffic goes up.

Good luck

This is an 8 year old thread.
If you have a client connected to the server you can obtain the list of Rooms in your Zone with all the details for each Room, including the amount of players, spectators etc...

Is this that you're asking?
