Thread: CPU Overload

  1. #1

    Default CPU Overload

    Hello we have a server with 10gb of port speed but there is a problem, when we reach the 8k connections the cpu goes really bad, it goes to 100% usage and does not allow more conections, we have 28 cores in each server and 128gb of ram, what do you think that could be the problem?, thanks.

    Wowza does not have a hard limit for connections and this is based on connectivity and hardware, however Java is limited to 5 Gbps per instance without tuning at the OS level.
    Running multiple instances of Wowza on a single server will allow you to use the bandwidth more effectively however you should give a 20% overhead and assume that you're going to be able to use a maximum of 8 Gbps from each server at the most.

    Please see the guide How to run multiple instances of Wowza Media Server on one computer and ensure that all the servers/instances are tuned using the Tuning guide.

    VOD will need to read from disk whereas live doesn't. In that case fast drives and a caching RAID controller may help.
    For VOD you can use Media Cache
