alright so, Apache Guacamole is single threaded for it’s idk transcode process, “rendering” I guess.
So if I’m remote, and want to watch a video, or a large video banner ad pops up, if the cpu on the Guac server can’t handle it, it can lock out our input.
I found this to be the case on an old E5-2667 v2. So I installed proxmox on an old 4790s system and got pretty good performance.
Well a few weeks ago, I got a new PC, hooray!
A Ryzen 9 5950x, I loaded proxmox up on it again, iommu’d the gpu for my windows guest for gaming and thought about all the headroom I had on this new machine.
I moved my Ubuntu vm over which had the Guacamole Docker container on it expecting to just have buttery playback, and performance was worse than on my old xeon.
I’m passing the cpu as host, allotted it a bunch of cores.
I’m at a loss.
Is there some sort of AMD trick I need to do to get Ubuntu working well for my guac needs? Or is there some sort of optimization missing from Guac?
I also tried it on a LXC Container, same poor performance.
Thanks for any thoughts,
