I have a lot of questions I need some help on. My current dedicated server:
i3-6320, Asus Z170-E, 16 GB G-Skill DDR4 2400, Quatro P2000, WD Black 5 TB, WD Red 10 TB, WD Red 8 TB- Windows 10 Pro (No SSD)
I have (13) users, around 2,500 movies (2/3 DVD- 1/3 BR), 14,000 songs, few hundred TV Shows
I have a 1 Gbs Fios to my house- both up and down.
I am having problems with simultaneous streaming. A few weeks ago I could get at least 6 streams (1 local and 5 remote) going without any issues. Maybe more, I never really tried to see how many I could get at once. This maybe caused by Covid-19 and everyone clogging the internet. Not sure.
I just want to make the system work to the best it can be, so:
1. Should I install a 1 TB NVME SSD to help the system run more smoothly? Will it vastly help?
2. Are there Windows services I can shut down to eliminate anything I don't need to run? I really don't want to change OS.
3. Are there any settings in the Nvidia Control Panel that will boost the use of the GPU vs. the CPU for the Emby Server?
4. Would more RAM help?
5. Change settings on the Emby Server to improve overall performance? I have hardware acceleration set to the Quatro.
If the CPU is maxed out, I am getting ready to retire my daily driver computer and could install the CPU/MoBo/RAM in the Server. That system is:
i7-3820, Asrock X79 Extreme, 32 GB DDR 3 1600, and Reuse the Quatro P2000, hard drives, and add a SSD?
The I3-6320 has a benchmark of 6047
The i7-3820 has a benchmark of 8990
Or, take the new rig I built in December to be my replacement server until I completely took a left turn on energy efficiency and built:
i9-9900K, Asus Maximus Hero XI Z390, 32 GB DDR 4 3200, Sabrent Rocket 1 TB M.2 NVME, MSI RTX 2060 Super
And use the above for my server? It has a benchmark of 20215.
I look forward to getting some answers.
