Re: BUG - Issues since upgrading the v5

Yeah... I'm not a developer or an analyst, but it feels like the service is bleeding memory like there's no tomorrow. We have a client that has 50+ cams, so having server w/32GB of ram wasn't unjustified. After numerous "low memory conditions", we upgraded to 64GB. Same issue. Low memory. Double th...

Re: Ghosting - I think this is what this artifact is called - anyone esle struggle with this?

I've tinkered with various settings but I hate doing random changes without understanding the exact impacts. I've set both the i-frame and the fps to 10 in the cameras. By the way, what are the units on the i-frame number? Obviously frame rate is in frames per second. I know the general idea is tha...

Re: Reeolink Cameras Bringing BI to it's Knees :-(

Does anyone know if it would be worth my while to upgrade to BI5? Or are the Reolink cameras just trash. I saw Glenn's comment that he shelfed his.... :-( JB Worth upgrading, but won't reduce your CPU usage. Honestly, in your case it's more that BI is targeted\optimised for Intel and\or Nvidia user...

Re: My server PC

Right now I am running BI on an Intel NUC (i7) along with PLEX and am finding the limits of what the CPU can handle. With 7 cameras of various resolutions and only recording when triggered, my CPU use for BI stands at about 40-60 percent even after all the settings to keep proc use in check. I am p...

Re: H265 issue

I'm not Tim but a recent minor release of BI5 noted a new library of some sort that the author stated "might help" with H265 acceleration. That type of loose statement that it 'might' help is not too comforting to me. I read that as applying to NVIDIA GPU acceleration for H265 My BI device doesn't ...

Yup, H265 works here, but loads up the cpu. Since the PC is running Emby, TVMosaic, Homeseer etc, I prefer to keep the BI CPU usage as low as possible. My cameras are all set to H264.
Tim do you know if H265 Quicksync support is on the roadmap?

Re: Reeolink Cameras Bringing BI to it's Knees :-(

Did you fix this? Follow any of the guides on the internet, showing how to reduce CPU usage with BI. - Always use direct to disk recording - Disable BI Overlays - Use Hardware Decoding (check your CPU supports Intel Quicksync) It's often the motion detection that consumes BI resources, - Lower Frame...

Re: VLAN & Firewall rules

Possibly Overengineering it a bit. If you have BI and the CAM's on different networks, you then need a vLAN capable router or firewall router to bridge them together, but then you might as-well not have them separate. The router and firewall will also kill performance. Typically, most people want th...

Re: BI 5 Feature suggestion thread

I am actually very happy with BI. I have 3 feature requests a) H.265 Intel CPU Hardware Decoding b) Motion Detection to operate on sub-streams (sure you can manually set this up to then trigger recording on the HD channels, but there is a bug in the triggers that stop recording despite continual mov...
