How Many GlobalCapture Cores Do I Need?

What Is A Core License?

A GlobalCapture Core license is essentially allotting physical or logical processing cores on a server to GlobalCapture to use openly and freely at its discretion. Cores are used for image manipulation, such as PDF Conversion or Image Cleanup, as well as used during data extraction and classification. Environments utilizing heavy OCR will likely need to increase their core count to maintain speed as their processing burden increases. Image Processing is CPU-heavy, and additional cores help to spread the burden across multiple processors, helping clients with a heavy document processing overhead maintain an expected level of document throughput. Additional cores can be licensed at any time and the update to the core licensing can be made very rapidly. Please contact your RSM in regards to any evolving processing needs.

Server Processing Burden

Please be aware that “Cores” in the context of GlobalCapture may refer to a physical or logical processor. What this means is that at any point in time, GlobalCapture has as many cores as you have licensed to devote purely to image processing. GlobalCapture can be scaled nearly infinitely with the addition of extra engines and cores, but the burden of processing lies on the physical processors. What this means for the server or virtual machine that GlobalCapture is housed on is GlobalCapture will indiscriminately use up to 100% of it's allotted cores, with no regard for the other applications or processes running on the server. This should be kept in mind when designing or scoping out an environment. Additional cores in excess of the cores allocated to GlobalCapture may be suggested to maintain system stability of the capture server.
