BlueIris on Intel Xeon System - slow performance

Post by AdrianW » Thu Jan 21, 2021 3:32 pm

Hi guys,

would need some help.
At the moment i'm running BI5 at a small system but with i7-6700 cpu.

But i want to change this to my homeserver.
This one is powered by a Intel Xeon Gold 6142 CPU (as far i know this one doesnt have any hardware acceleration)

Already moved BI5 for testing to the new system, but one of the camera was getting connection drops now and then (until i changed to H265 instead of H264).
And all cameras having a delay of ~10-15sec between the live event and the webinterface.
CPU load of that XEON was lower 10%.

Direct-to-Disk is enabled, so thats not the issue.

Maybe adding a GPU to the Xeon system should help? Or any other ideas?
Just dont want to keep the old system running only for blueiris.

Thanks
Adrian

Found (maybe) the reason for this issue, the camera that is mainly lagging and got dropped frames is that one that got a 270° rotation configured in BlueIris.
As soon i remove the rotation the camera is working fine.


Any ideas on this maybe? It's a Hikvision camera and i found no option to rotate the picture in camera settings itself.

And funny fact - if i enable direct2disc i'm getting about 7-8sec delay between live event and shown at webinterface.
At the moment i'm running both blue iris and if i enable the license on the R740 Dell server i'm getting this delay.

Both servers are writing to harddrives in the Dell server, so the small system is using SMB to write the files and is faster than local storage.

If i disable direct2disk the delay is gone by the way AND i've got no more frame drops, even if i rotate the image.
So not sure what the issue is, but maybe that helps developers or other users with that issues.
