Direct Writing to Object Storage

Post by kellnerp » Sat Oct 31, 2020 11:26 pm

Currently Zoneminder supports S3 Object Storage through the s3fs filesystem. This is inefficient and slow.
There should be a feature whereby Zoneminder can directly create and retrieve blobs in an s3 object storage bucket without having to go through a filesystem and then keep track of the blobs in the database, not by a pseudo file structure in the bucket.

In addition for archival purposes when not using s3 object storage for real time storage of images Zoneminder should have a feature to archive whole events directly to object storage without requiring an intermediate filesystem.

Trust me you don't want this. The latency is too high.

TrueNAS Core has s3 sharing that you can share a dataset on your NAS, it is local and low latency...
