Load Balancing

Video Insight stores all camera-related settings in a Microsoft SQL Server database. In multi-server configurations, a single database can be used to store all settings. Using a centralized database has a number of benefits including automated failover, but it also allows administrators to easily move cameras between servers. For example, let’s assume you have 100 cameras spread across two equally-sized servers, but one of the servers is only keeping 20 days of recorded history instead of the desired 30 days. Using the Camera Setup tab, you can easily move cameras between servers with a few mouse clicks.
