Here is something that I’ve just noticed, but I am not sure how long it’s been doing this.
After a fresh reboot, I looked in NSC (64-bit) at my 3 720p 30fps cameras and all is well. They are all running at or near 30fps.
(There are other cameras on the system too, but all are lesser FPS and res)
After about a day, I check back in on NSC and find that all three cameras have dropped to 15 fps for some reason.
After trying different things (rebooting wifi routers, rebooting cameras, etc.) I discovered that to fix the issue, all I have to do was go into the services panel and do a restart on the Netcam Studio Server (64-bit) service, and everything jumps right back to 30fps.
I can have NSC in the background on my screen, and the services panel in the foreground (while still being able to view the FPS) and if it’s sitting around 15fps, I can click on the service restart, then I can watch the FPS stop for a few seconds, then pick back up at 30fps.
Also, when looking at Netcam Studio Service in Task Manager, while restarting the service, when it comes back up, the CPU and memory usage are essentially the same. I was expecting to see one or the other drop.
The system still has a fair bit of headroom on CPU and memory.
Odd problem but it seems like it’s related to the Netcam Studio services.
There are a couple of things I haven’t looked at yet
- Does it immediately fall from 30 to 15, or is it gradual over time?
- How long does it take before it actually hits 15fps?
Any thoughts of anything I can check?
