Assess concurrent stream capabilities
Once you have confirmed that your hardware is supported by
Go Livepeer, you should assess how many concurrent streams it can support.
Some of these terms restrict users from utilizing their own hardware to its full capacity through artificial restrictions. While googling for open-source patches reveals workarounds to these limitations, Livepeer encourages operators on the network to read and comply with the terms of service and usage policies of the hardware that they are using.
If you are using an NVIDIA card, check you are running the latest driver version on your NVIDIA GPU, or update your driver before proceeding to benchmarking. You can access the GPU configuration, Display Adapters, and drivers for your operating system either directly or through your NVIDIA Control Panel.
Concurrent session caps for NVIDIA hardware can be found here (opens in a new tab).
You can test the performance of your card using the
livepeer_bench benchmarking tool.
