I have an HP G7 Server having 24 Xeon E659 @ 2.53 GHz with 128 GB of ram no graphic card running linux 6.2 Santiago.
Currently, I have 8 live stream which, I transcode in Wowza server different bitrates and CPU of machine goes haywire i.e. 90% utilized almost all 24 CPU’s.
Also we are using adaptive bitrate streaming i.e. SMIL for our customers.
Wondering if anyone can suggest a good graphic card we can use for transcoding taking the load of CPU’s.
Also, If we add a GPU for transcoding how many live streams can we push to a single wowza server?
How much load would a GPU take away from CPU’s while transcoding?
We are planning to have 20 live streams over a single Wowza server.
Appreciate if anyone could help.
