Very interesting problem. If I just look at the specifications of the CPU there should be no problems at all. Normally, more cores/threads is very good for the performance. One of my systems run on a xeon 4 cores 3.2GHz 4GB RAM server2008R2 with 18 cams from VGA to HD in motion detection. That system goes to a CPU load of 95-100%. Your system should definetly have a much lower CPU load. So the question is why?
1.when you do the following tests I would like you to run NCS X with the blue icon and not the service.
2.use the default settings that comes with the installation.
3.since you have a licensed version you can enable the following in the settings
That will give the codec more cpu power to work with. Enable these 2 and see what happens?
4.In the same Tab you can also select Decoding Library. Default is Software_Internal which is usually very good.
Test and change that to Hardware_DXVA2 or Hardware_QuickSync and see what happens? These 2 settings make use of the hardware in the graphics card and in CPU. Remember to restart NCS when you change these 2 settings.Change to hardware acceleration might not do that much since the Software_internal is very efficient.
Now, go back to default settings and we start from the beginning.
5.What is the CPU load when NCS is not running at all?
6.Start NCS X (the blue icon). You can have all cameras connected. All cameras should be OFF, no motion detection or no recording. Go to a view that not show the videos. Now all cameras should go to idle since they are not used. What is the CPU load now? This should be very low. More or less the same as in 5.
7.Make one camera active by setting it to motion detection or recording. What happens with the CPU load?
8. Make another camera active and see what happens with the CPU load. Continue and add active cameras and see what happens.
9. Make sure the settings for Recordings are these
We start with the above and I will be back with info about the App. That live feed is controlled with a Token that might be limited in time due to security. I have to come back with that.
Looking forward to the results from the testings.
