Thanks fenderman. How many cameras do you run? I just added my final camera tonight, a Hikvision Dark box camera (nicknamed, "DarkNight").
It varies..I run about 20 systems...some with only 4 some with 12..Thanks fenderman. How many cameras do you run? I just added my final camera tonight, a Hikvision Dark box camera (nicknamed, "DarkNight").
This all leads me to believe I need some serious configuring, both to lean out Widows 10 Pro and Blue Iris..
I'm rereading all of the Blue Iris Help files and seeing what I'm missing.
CPU seems high when you add 2 more cams...Seriously, I cannot express how much I appreciate you taking the time to talk with me.
I have a dedicate PC running only the latest Blue Iris and Windows 10 Pro (64bit).
- CPU: i7-3770k,
- 8G ram,
- 4 hard drives (1-OS, 2-main Blue Iris hard drive, 3-Hard drive for License Plate Capture camera 1 and now "Dark Knight camera", 4-Hard drive dedicated to License Plate Capture camera 2) Each hard drive is connected via eSata cables.
- 12 total cameras. (differing models of Hikvison)
- Resolutions vary but most are 4MP. Two are 6MP, and newest one is 2MP.
- The Cameras themselves are set so that the i-Frame and fps are the same.
- Blue Iris is set to 20MB receive buffer.
- All set "Direct to Disk"
- Windows Firewall is set to all BlueIris.
- I just set an exclusion in "Windows Defender" to (BlueIris)
- (is this the correct way to identify it and its processes? I went to Processes/Exclude a .exe, .com or .scr process, and added the word "BlueIris")
CPU runs at 50% with 11 cameras.
CPU runs at 50-70% with 12 cameras (Highest at night, with 4 cameras grouped to trigger)
CPU runs at 90+% with 13 cameras (I just recently added a Hikvision DS-2CD6026FHWD-A3, Ultra-Dark vision camera (named Dark Knight))
