Salient Server And Memory Load Question

When trying to use the Salient Server calc system: Salient CompleteView Server & Storage Calculator

How is it determining server and memory load. For example if I put 100 Axis Cameras ranging from 5 to 8MP it says it needs two of their platinum servers and each server runs around 65% load. I am trying to determine where this number is coming from to see if we could just use another single high performance server instead of having to use two.

UI1, I do not have background using their Server/Storage Calculator, but I emailed Salient for feedback. Myself or Salient will post the response here.

Part of the problem with Salient is that they refuse to provide true server spec's if you or your customer want to provide one yourself. If you get loud enough they will provide which CPU is on the server they spec'd and you can compare that to passmark scores to get the CPU you want.

UI1, please email me at brian.carle @ salientsys.com with your saved Design Tool Wizard results (use the "Save Report" button on the results page to download an HTML file of the results).

That will show us the exact camera and recording server configuration and we can help you estimate a single server solution.

Best regards,

Brian Carle
