Comments on 2020-03-26 Jitsi and the CPU

Other people: Jitsi Meet and the Number of Video Participants – 「… 2 virtual cores and 4GB of memory … both CPUs ran at around 70% with 10 clients and memory use was around 1.4 GBs at the beginning and 800 MB a little while later when everyone had joined and settled in … I was far away from saturating the CPU with 10 simultaneous video streams in the conference.」 – Nice! 🙂

Other software: Big Blue Button: Requirements – 「… we recommend starting with a ‘clean’ Ubuntu 16.04 64-bit server dedicated for BigBlueButton. … 4 GB of memory with swap enabled (8 GB of memory is better) … 4 CPU cores (8 is better)」 – but as noted I only have 2 GB of memory, only 2 CPU cores, it’s not a dedicated server, and it’s Debian Buster, not Ubuntu 16. Oh well!

Had another session yesterday and when the conference ended it seemed to me that some of the other services on this machine had been killed. Out of memory? I don’t think so. I need to investigate. Perhaps the response times for requests had grown so long that Monit decided the services were down and started restarting them?
