Motion detection CPU usage


#1

Morning

Can you maybe give an indication of the CPU usage of the motion detection types? I am sure one mode uses more CPU cycles than another.

I am asking because I need to setup Motion detection on 10 cameras. I will be adding a 2nd CPU to the server soon, but would like to try and optimise it as much as possible even before then.

TIA

You are probably correct and maybe/probably there is a difference about cpu cycles between the modes. However, I use the mode that gives me the best result for my application. That would be the most important in my opinion. At the end, settings of parameters and whatever else you have in your system determine what hardware you need. Reliability is another important and costly parameter. Yes, and the size of you expense account ;). So for me each application, each system is individual and must be tested. How about the cams; 720p, 1080p, … FPS, . Parameters that very much effect the need for hardware.
Your result is very interesting so please report back since it certainly will help others here in forum with same sort questions. We have a lot of questions about this and it might be an idea to include these results in some sort of guide lines.
