IngestRate

The rate at which Media Server ingests video.

You must use IngestRate=1 for streams and in most cases HPE recommends IngestRate=0 for video files.

The parameter accepts the following values:

Options Default SampleInterval SampleInterval = 0
IngestRate=1

HPE recommends using IngestRate=1 and the default sample intervals for processing live streams.

Media Server does not attempt to process every frame, but selects frames for analysis based on the specified sample interval. The default sample intervals should provide good accuracy in most cases. If necessary, Media Server will increase the sample interval to ensure that analysis occurs at normal (playback) speed.

If Media Server does not have sufficient resources, it will increase the sample interval, which might cause a reduction in accuracy.

Media Server attempts to analyze every frame, but frames are skipped if the analysis tasks you have configured cannot process the frames at normal (playback) speed.

HPE does not recommend these settings because processing every frame is usually not necessary and Media Server is likely to skip large numbers of frames.

IngestRate=0

HPE recommends IngestRate=0 and the default sample intervals for processing video from files.

Media Server does not attempt to process every frame, but selects frames for analysis based on the specified sample interval. The default sample intervals should provide good accuracy in most cases. If analysis is slow, Media Server ingests the file at a slower rate so that frames can be analyzed at the requested sample interval.

If Media Server does not have sufficient resources, it will take longer to process the file, but accuracy is maintained.

Ensures that all frames are analyzed.

HPE does not recommend these settings because in most cases this will take much longer and might not increase accuracy.

Use this mode only if it is critical that every frame is analyzed.
