The maximum number of CPU threads to use for analysis. In most cases this specifies the number of video frames to analyze concurrently.


If you are using HPE Media Server with GPU support, HPE recommends that you set NumParallel=1, and set the parameter GPUNumParallel.

As long as your server has sufficient resources, increasing the value of this parameter allows HPE Media Server to analyze a greater number of frames in a given time. The result of this depends on the value you have set for IngestRate:

Do not increase the value of this parameter unless your server has spare resources (CPU cores), because doing so will significantly decrease performance.
