First, I know processing speeds will vary wildly based on hardware but just wanted to share my experience and ask if it was typical/expected or if I possibly have a configuration issue (I’m new to running my own physical server).
I have a Dell r710 with an Intel Xeon 5650@ 2.67ghz and 64 gb ram. I’m running ProxMox and I’ve setup a Ubuntu 18.04 VM with 48 gb of ram and all the cpu power allocated to it. I’ve installed WebODM via the docker image.
I’m processing a 644 image dataset on High Resolution and it’s been running for over 16 hours. Is this normal or expected to take this long to process? For reference, I ran the same dataset on an r5.xlarge AWS instance (32 gb ram, Intel® Xeon® Platinum 8175M CPU @ 2.50GHz ) and it took 4.5 hours to process the dataset.
Is my machine this much slower? I know the CPU on the AWS instance is much more powerful and also has an SSD but I guess I wasn’t expecting it to be this much slower.
The dataset I’m processing can be found here. It’s the Back 9 dataset.
