Display FPS and lantecy


I’m currently able to stream the volumetric video on a local network. But wanted to display the current fps values and latency on the screen. Is this possible? Or to save them to a .txt or .csv file.


Hi @Rengo,

You can use this method to retrieve the current frame rate of the camera: Camera.getCurrentFPS()

And regarding the latency or ping? Is there any way?

Are you using the Local Streaming module of the ZED SDK or something different?

Local Streaming module

You can use the system time and the frame timestamp to estimate the latency, but sender and receiver must be time synchronized.

You can use PTP to synchronize the time clocks:

I’ll look into that! Thanks :slight_smile:

Hello again!
I’m trying to connect my 2 pcs and got this responses from ethtool -T enp3s0:

  • PC 1
Time stamping parameters for enp3s0:
PTP Hardware Clock: none
Hardware Transmit Timestamp Modes: none
Hardware Receive Filter Modes: none

  • PC 2
Settings for enp3s0:
	Supported ports: [ TP	 MII ]
	Supported link modes:   10baseT/Half 10baseT/Full

I’m pretty sure this means PC1 does not have the requirements to use this tool right? It has an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060.

If approach does not work is there any alternative?

Follow up questions:

  1. Where should I set my camera resolution? On the sender or receiver device? (Or on both)?

  2. The same for H264/H265. Where should I set it?

  3. Is there a way to save the point cloud from the spatial mapping?

@Myzhar @mattrouss Could you help me out?

The sender controls the camera settings concerning resolution and framerate.

The sender controls the compression settings

This example provides you with the required information:

Thank you, got it to work :slight_smile:

Could you just hit me back with this?

PTP support is provided by the hardware of the ethernet controller.
Not all the ethernet controllers provide this feature.

It does not depend on the GPU card model.

So is there any other approach?

Unfortunately, PTP is the only method to obtain sub-millisecond system clock synchronization.

If it’s a desktop PC you can add an expansion ethernet board with PTP capabilities.

Just to close the thread, I was able to synchronize the PC clocks using NTP.
I’ve followed this link and seems to be working fine! :slight_smile:
