Re: Log keeps growing

OK been running a few days now log still has data from the 19th onwards when I manually cleared despite being set to "1 day". The logs are invaluable for debugging and setup, but cant afford them to grow indefinately, Any input appreciated.

Re: zoneminder service stopped itself

I didnt not realize overload frame count meant what it meant. I have now reduced the overload frame count from 3 to 0 on camera m8 (the rest were at 0 already) shall see how that effects the logs.

Re: Zoneminder not working

could you set it to record for a while, then manually check the correct folder for the captured files and open a jpg (in gimp or something that isnt zoneminder) and see if its actually recording. if so it may be capturing fine but the web interface isnt able to access the images to display them. I s...

Re: Limit to 30 monitors

Carefull with that, its my understanding the tmpfs is mounted in ram, so you need to take into account how much ram the rest if the system needs, if you have 32gb of ram you may be cutting it fine if you have less than 30gb of ram your in for lots of swappyness.

Re: Limit recording space in HD

There is an option for specifying filters with respect to disk blocks rather than percentage, see the linux command "df" to get in idea how blocks relate to capacity on your system ( it is dependent on file system and drive capacity)

Re: Limit recording space in HD

limits are set using the "filters" button, you set up rules to govern HD useage, However I dont think you could set limits per user, (as its dynamic depending on what cameras each user has access too) more realistically you can set limits per camera then assign the relevant cameras to each user.

Log keeps growing

Currently at 536360 items, have changed "LOG_DATABASE_LIMIT" to 1000 rather than "7 day" restarted then left it a few hours to let the audit thingy do its business, but still the log remains huge. Would like to manually purge then have a limit set, any sql whizkids know how? I did find an old thread...

Re: How to custom settings in IP cams without Windows ?

unrealistic to expect ZM devs to pander to every custom app required to set up every camera that sails out of china. You can however pick up the mantle and roll your own code :), given these cams should have purely html interfaces not custom IE widgets its the cam manufacturers fault. Whats more ins...
