Our initial set of testing with the A16 GPUs produced the following results:
- Ipsotek VISuite DB node - performance met expectation.
- Ipsotek VISuite Management Node - performance met expectation.
- Ipsotek VISuite Processing nodes - we observed higher than expected CPU utilization and a subsequent low camera stream processing count.
We determined that the 8 vCPU configuration used previously with the A40 testing did not have the sufficient processing power to transfer the video workload to the A16 GPU. The vCPU count was increased in increments of two until the system stabilized at less than 80% CPU utilization with 24 vCPUs that were required to transfer data to the GPU from 60 concurrent camera streams.
The final configuration for each processing node in this testing was as follows:
- 64 GB
- 1 x A16
- C:\ 200 GB
- D:\ 400 GB
- Windows 2019 Server
