Re: Beginner performance questions

As above everyone has their own experience. My first ZM server was a gen 1 i3 (4 threads) and it ran 2x 3mp cameras with modect fine. I added a 5mp camera and found the end of that CPU. I upgraded to a gen 2 i7 (8 threads) and added 2 cameras. Current camera list: 2x 3mp, 3x 5mp and 1x 8mp running 1...

Re: Move Events with Filter / wrong date

Has this been resolved or is there a bug report? When I used a filter to move events it changed the displayed start date and copied the event to the new store, but wrote it to the an unexpected directory. The log entry: Can't create frame images from video because there is no video file for this eve...

Re: PurgeWhenFull not working

I solved the problem. The PurgeWhenFull default rule does not account for Storage Areas. I added a condition and it now returns what it should.

Re: PurgeWhenFull not working

My previous install had the 2nd drive mounted strategically in the tree also. I wanted to use the storage option to be able to place different cameras on different drives. With no apparent solution and no ability to Purge specific locations I will be moving the mount point and resetting some default...

Re: PurgeWhenFull not working

Further information: Using the "Disk Blocks" filter "Greater than or equal" I have confirmed that it is retrieving only the usage of "/" not of "/zmvideo" When I use the Used block number the filter returns events. If I change the number to less blocks it returns no events. What did I set wrong? Is ...

Re: PurgeWhenFull not working

I wish it was a simple performance problem. The system has an OS drive and a video only drive. My previous install worked well with previous ZM version at 97%. This one does not return any events to delete until I set the percent to 9. For now I am running a purge by date which is just to get by unt...

PurgeWhenFull not working

After a clean Ubuntu 18.04 install and ZM 1.32.3 install I have filled my data disk. The Purge when full filter returns no results. I have 2 HDs, 1 OS and programs and 1 Video only. The console page show 3TB (video drive) at 99% and Default at 9%. Testing tends to indicate that those numbers are put...
