Because BlueIris runs on windows, it is VERY important to make sure that in your VM, you have selected 1 CPU socket and 8 cores per socket.
Standard ESXi make the VM with 8 sockets and 1 core per socket.
My CPU utilisation went from 100% to 25% after that (4 core, 1 socket in stead of 4 sockets with 1 core).
Hope this helps.
Yep, silly Windows licensing restrictions. I typically set up all VMs in ESXi as 1 socket, many cores. Even if they are going to be linux VMs. As I understand it, there is no performance difference either way.
