[linux-audio-user] icecast2, bandwidth?

Following up on my recent posting about full duplex operation, I've now gotten as far as installing and running icecast2 and

Connecting it all using jackd or pd without a gui still seems like a bit of mystery to me but that will hopefully resolve along
the way. 

Because a Hammerfall card and some ADAT interfaces is a bit of an investment, I wonder if anyone can estimate the bandwidth. Does
it seem likely that an icecast box with a 100Mbit/s connection can serve and receive eight separate stereo streams simultaneously?
Or would that need gigabit I/O?

Thanks and cheers,
