We are running an installation of network optix server on an linux EC2 instance in AWS cloud. It have about 20 cameras connected on local ports (thru SSH tunnels).
The cameras are of type HTTP_URL_PLUGIN and are very rarly anyone viewing.
We have two really concering problems with our setup.
1) From time to time (like every day) the CPU load of the mediaserver-bin are hitting 100% and stays there until server restart
2) Even thou noone is watching the camera there are periodic (some measurment indicates ever 20 seconds) fetches of the video URL resulting in high bandwith consumption.
Looking at the CPU vs network traffic there seems to be a direct relation between the high CPU load and network traffic in. (indicating that the 2 problems are related) However the network traffic out does not follow the same curve, also indicating that the video stream are not forwarded to any actuall viewer.
(this is my assumption, might be wrong on that)
I know this is a very tricky support case but I need help in where to go from here in trying to resolve it. I have tried looking thru the event log of the server but dont see any specific problems or any hugh amount of log entries in the time of transitions to 100% cpu load. (Still I dont know what to search for so I might be missing something)
