How to limit bandwidth usage?

I would like to decrease the bandwidth usage when I connect to console remotely because the upload bandwidth of the server hosting my zoneminder system is limited. I have tried playing with the High / Medium / Low Bandwidth settings but I can't understand how they work. For example I tried to set Lo...

Re: /dev/shm increasing TO 100%

3 of the cameras are wifi only (2 of which old phones running IPcam), so they loose connection at times. Logs do go crazy when that happens but couldn't pin point it as the cause of /dev/shm filling up. How do u turn them of and back on? (states or scripting) If scripting can u please give me a sta...

Re: Troubleshooting two cameras that won't work at the same time

Can you post logs? It's a very strange problem.. try to configure and add third camera to zoneminder. If you don't have other cameras available you can install an application that transform your smartphone in ip camera and attach it to zoneminder (via wifi) to see if the problem is your zoneminder i...

Re: /dev/shm increasing TO 100%

I've got similar problem on my environment (ryzen 5 2600 with 32Gb RAM) but it happens only if ZM can't get the stream from at least one camera (camera power off, freeze, lose radio bridge etc.). My /dev/shm is 14GB: tmpfs 14G 7,7G 6,4G 55% /dev/shm If a camera goes down zoneminder gets crazy and st...

Add-on ZM Advanced Person Detector - v. 0.05a

Premise: I am not a developer. I did not translate notes from Italian. This is a mini guide to install "Zoneminder Advanced Person Detector" on Debian 10. Introduction: I wrote a set of scripts to analyze zoneminder events and notify via telegram the presence of people in the recorded videos / image...

Re: How to deal with shadows of trees in the wind

there is already a system that does what you need and integrates with zoneminder: https://zmeventnotification.readthedocs.io/en/latest/ It analyzes and recognizes faces, plates and objects and can instantly notify you of the type of object detected The only problem I encountered using this system is...

Re: How to deal with shadows of trees in the wind

It is a problem that also affects my environment. To solve the annoyance I am writing some code to integrate with ZM Event Server which analyzes the videos in search of people and / or objects and then according to certain rules sends me a notification on Telegram. In this way I do not receive notif...

How to enable h264_nvenc on storage options.

What's the parameter that I have to write in order to enable hardware acceleration for the encoding of mjpeg cameras in storage options?

I tried:

encoder=h264_nvenc
-c:v h264_nvenc
c:v=h264_nvenc

without success.

Re: Upgraded from 1.34.16 to 1.34.19 - mysqld CPU usage

Now the process is back to standard cpu usage. I think it was due to the fact that a camera was not initialized properly. When this happens usually zoneminder goes into crisis and fills the virtual memory (/dev/shm) even if at that moment there is some free giga as in this situation tmpfs 12G 8.7G 3...
