I have had a 16 camera geovision system for years and it works great. I want to switch to IP cameras. I started with 3 IP cameras and set them to 30FPS. Live view looks fine (looks more like 10-14FPS), but the recordings looked more like 3-5FPS. I added a 2nd hard drive (Seagate Surveillance HDD 4TB ST4000VX000 6Gb/s ) and dedicated the IP cams to it. They were actually worse! More like 1FPS with FREQUENT pauses, gaps, etc. I listed my system below. What items need to be checked/upgraded to make a viable 16 IP camera system?
Intel Core 2 Quad (Q6600)
Gigabyte EP45-UD3R MB (Intel chipset, SATA 3GB/s)
2 - 4GB SATA 6 drives (yes, I know 3 is the max with this MB)
3 GB RAM
NVidia Geoforce 9400 GT
Geovision 1480 A Combo card
Geovision v8.5.9 - I tried a newer version and couldn't even get it to come up, so I had to reinstall this one.
When running, performance is:
Memory - 80%
Disk 1 - 1-2%
Disk 2 - 1-2%
Ethernet - 9-14Mbps
As a note, before adding IP cams, I upgraded from win 7 to 10 and ever since then, even the analog cameras look "blocky". I tried different drivers with no improvement.
