I'm stuck having to transcode all my cameras from MPEG4 via Wowza, the server specs are as follows:
Intel Xeon E5606 @ 2.13 GHz (4 CPUs)
8 GM RAM
Windows 2008 R2 (64-bit)
Java 6 - update 29 (64-Bit)
I have a total of 17 cameras (and I'm planning on a total of 20 cameras) to transcode and stream, and I'm seeing only 14 cameras start up correctly. I think I've maxed it out. CPU runs at 100%, and about 5 GBs of RAM are free.
I've limited the transcoding to 160p only. Is there a way to make the steams even smaller? I'm not adverse to moving to 15 fps (or even 5 Fps), and a frame size of 320x240 .
Will that help?
