I don’t know if this is the right forum to post this.
I was just wondering if anyone is running WebODM from a virtual machine - either with Microsoft’s Hyper-V , Vmware, or Oracle-box? If anyone is, perhaps we can share notes to tweek the performance better.
I have an old decomission server i purchased a couple of years ago for my home computer lab. It has 160gb of ram, 24 CPU threads, and plenty of hard drive storage space. Because I use the server other things, I didn’t want to load WebODM on the server’s operating system, but wanted to run it from a virtual machine inside the server. Long story short, after about 3 days playing with the settings I finally got WebODM to work. The VM I created had to be Windows 10 Pro, (it didn’t work with Windows server OS) and the most stable specs I used was a Virtual Machine with VM\CPU nesting, with 32GBs of ram and 8 CPUs - with 4 of it’s CPUs and 16 GBs of it’s ram running for the Hyper-V that is built by the WebODM install. I managed to process about 130 images in about 7 hrs. If I add more CPUs and Ram to the VM, WebODM crashes every time and fails to start up. I suspect this is partialy due to Windows 10 Pro’s limitation and if I were able to get WebODM to run on Windows server 2016 or something of the sort it would be more stable.
Anyway, if anyone else is running WebODM in a VM, I’d love to hear how you have it set up. Thx.
