Dear Support Team,
I am benchmarking Wowza Streaming Server on Ubuntu 20.04.02 TLS, Intel Xeon E-2288G 8/16 CPU, 32 GB RAM remote workstation. I was expecting to get twise as better results as described in Wowza_Transcoder_Benchmarks_Transrate1080p.pdf, but I have two times worse results. I am transcoding, transrating 1080p Bunny to 720p, 360p, 240p, 160p. Transrate results 1 stream - 20% CPU, 2 - 46% CPU, 3 - 60% CPU, 4 - 85% (unusable). Transcoding results 1 - 7%, 2 - 21%, 3 - 45%, 4 - 55%, 5 - 85% (unsuable).
How would you suggest to proceed with this issue, because I have up to 4 times worse results compared to CPU (8 core, 16 thread) that is in use.
Transcode, transrate templates are used default, just enabled presets. Wowza Streaming Engine 4.8.11+5 configuration by default is optimized as described in your documentation.
