To ensure optimal performance, do not exceed the maximum number of cameras supported in Security Center 5.9 Unit Assistant Role (UAR) batch operations.

Some operations, like camera password change, introduces camera reconnection. It is recommended to plan these operations to occur during non-critical periods.

By default, the role runs on the server hosting the Directory and into Video Unit Control agents running on Archiver servers. It mainly uses CPU resources along with some network and disk resources.

IMPORTANT: Monitor server CPU usage if normal usage is already high to ensure UAR operation does not introduce undesirable impacts.

The maximum number of cameras supported by each server type in Security Center 5.9.1.0 and later is as follows:

Server Type Recommended High Performance
Directory & UAR 5.9.2.0
  • Batch of 10,000 cameras
  • CPU usage increased by over 80% during operation
  • No impact on system
  • Tested duration 110 seconds
5.9.2.0
  • Batch of 10,000 cameras
  • Low CPU increase
  • Tested duration 35-65 seconds
5.9.1.0
  • Batch of 3000 cameras
  • CPU usage increased by over 80% during operation
  • No impact on system
