no stream, no such file zms-xxxxxx.sock

Post by hingerl » Wed Oct 16, 2013 12:04 pm

if i set a monitors function to none/disabled or none/enabled and try to view a event from this monitor, i get no stream, with this entry in log
getCmdResponse stream error: socket_sendto( /tmp/zm/zms-532173s.sock ) failed: No such file or directory - checkStreamForErrors()
socket_sendto( /tmp/zm/zms-532173s.sock ) failed: No such file or directory

this only happens if i have a state where the monitor is none. If i activate this state, i get this error.
If i set the monitors function to monitor and then to none, if have a stream.
And then activate the state (with this monitor none), the stream is not here.

has anyone the same problem.
can anyone try this

Thanks

I had the same error but no stream under any combination.
Everything started after i decided to go to zoneminder 1.26.4 (or 3) from 1.25 under ubuntu 13:04 abd since two days ago under ubuntu 13.10.
My /usr/local/etc/zoneminder.conf, my /etc/apache2/conf.d/zoneminder.conf and my build configuration(if i remember well) as i build it from source was pointing to /var/www/cgi-bin for the cgi-bin folder.
Zm was capturing and i was able to see the frames but no streaming no matter what i did.
Today i found in the /var/log/apache2/error.log that zm was looking for zms under /usr/lib/cgi-bin

[Sat Oct 19 12:50:21.376566 2013] [cgi:error] [pid 1308] [client 10.20.217.56:63008] script not found or unable to stat: /usr/lib/cgi-bin/zms, referer: http://10.20.217.1/zm/index.php?view=watch&mid=1

I copied my zms & nph-zms from /var/www/cgi-bin, made sure that the user and group was www-data with the proper permissions (user/group could defer in your case) and that's it. Not even needed to restart zoneminder streaming started to work again.
Didn't bother to confirm that during build i indeed use the /var/www/cgi-bin but that is what i remember.
I searched but most solutions to the problem was pointing to wrong script alias under the zoneminder apache configuration but that was not my case.

thank you stefanos,

thats not my problem; i have zms in both directories:

Code: Select all

lrwxrwxrwx 1 www-data www-data 27 Sep 18 16:16 nph-zms -> /var/www/zm/cgi-bin/nph-zms
lrwxrwxrwx 1 www-data www-data 23 Sep 18 16:16 zms -> /var/www/zm/cgi-bin/zms
zm3:/usr/lib/cgi-bin# 
i can see the streams.
only if change the state for example: from night (all cams modect) to day (all cams none) then no stream. if i change back to night (all cams modect) i can see the streams.

apache2/error.log:

Code: Select all

[Mon Oct 21 13:43:42 2013] [error] [client 172.25.*.*] ERR [socket_sendto( /tmp/zm/zms-782550s.sock ) failed: No such file or directory], referer: //172.25.*.*/zm/index.php?view=event&eid=21627&filter[terms][0][attr]=MonitorId&filter[terms][0][op]=%3D&filter[terms][0][val]=1&sort_field=StartTime&sort_asc=0&page=1
ok: i see zms-782550s.sock apear in /tmp/zm, seconds later it disapears.

Exact same problem over here with a Slackware install.

Have you found out yet the solution? Im thinking about a reinstall and some other things to try, I will post back when I have tried them.

OK perhaps this is not related to the socket_sendto errors, but reinstalling (properly this time ;) libjpeg-turbo seems to make everything work as normal... no more of these errors except when I restart the service (zmpkg.pl restart), then I see a few of them being thrown in the logs, but a few seconds later, all is back to normal.

Other than that, I havent modified anything else since last time..

Of course I recompiled ZM to make sure it would use the freshly installed libjpeg-install. Ill keep an eye out for these annoying errors and post back if I find something.
