How powerful of a server do you need to run VMS software? What drives VMS server load?
There's manufacturer recommendations but, until now, there's has never been an independent test of VMS server load.
In this report, we share our test findings experimenting with 4 VMSes (Exacq, Milestone, Axxon and Network Optix/DW) and an examination of:
- Camera count impact
- VMD impact (full stream, substream and key frame only included)
- Live viewing impact
