    Server Software CPU usage

    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?

    Thanks

    Type 'top' then hit 1.

    It doesn't graph but it shows you individual usage per cpu.

    Thanks, Could you give me a little more detail and is there a way to delegate resources such as cpu cores for specific tasks?

    As far as I know, it's not easy to do so, if not impossible.

    You can try to set process priority for these tasks, generally, high priority process get more CPU time.
