I'm really new at this appreciate any suggestions.
I have a dual quad xenon server running Linux that will be used for a video sharing site. Currently it's set up for testing.
I have the impression that although the encoding software is able to use all 8 cores simutaneously I'm not convinced that is what's happening. Can someone suggest software that would show all 8 cores displayed individually in a graph. Something like the way task master on a windows machine does with the performanc tab showing cpu usage. And the second part of the equation is can I delegate for example 6 cores for encoding and 2 cores for streaming the videos?
