Unable to decode frame

Post by lbm » Mon May 13, 2019 11:34 am

Debian 9.9 with zoneminder 1.30.4

Im suddently after an server reboot, starting to see quite poor performance, on primarily on one of two webcams.
I have many of these errors in the log:

Any clues, why this happened? As stated, it came "out of the blue", after an server reboot.

Also, whenever, zoneminder is started, I get extremely poor respones (ping timeouts) from the camera.
So, it seems that ZM "drains" much of the network, or performance itself from the camera ?
E.g.
zoneminder started

Hm. I'm getting signal lost as well..

Again, it was working fine, until an reboot of the server. No changes has been made, not even patching.

If I do not use the 802.3ad VLAN bond, I do not have these issues.
So the issue seems to be somehow network related in my setup, with my 802.3ad VLAN on the KVM host, and not ZM related.
