BladeWare Scalability and Multi-Core Machines
BladeWare scales nicely across multi-core machines by using Commetrex’ exclusive OpenMedia stream-processing framework which allocates media processing onto multiple OpenMedia stream-processing processes. Since the SIP or PSTN channels are partitioned across multiple processes, the Windows or Linux OS can execute these CPU-intensive processes on multiple cores.
Each OpenMedia process supports up to 256 channels, giving a theoretical maximum of 2048 channels on an 8-core machine.
BladeWare queries the OS to determine how many cores are available and allocates a reasonable number of OpenMedia processes based on the number of cores and channels configured.
Alternately, the BladeWare user may configure BladeWare to create a specified number of OpenMedia processes without regard to available cores.
