Re: ZoneMinder 1.25.0 extremely slow to log in et al

I don't think it would help much but maybe some more memory?

Also, I would try and disable the red cameras and the Monitor cameras to see if that helps reduce the load.

and I would take a look at iotop to see if the io is over taxed.

It sounds like the the memory is all used up and it's swapping, that makes mine crawl to a stop. regular at times things should be identifiable in crontab or your zm filte...

Re: Black Screen on ubuntu appliance 1.25.0

dunno,
did you try with only one camera installed in zoneminder ?

how much memory did you allow for the vm?

where did you get the, I'm guessing, vdi ?

Re: Looking for recommendation for inexpensive camera for ZM

1280x1024 and inexpensive ? I guess it will all depend on what you think expensive is? For me $30 is an expensive camera so I get those cheapo Harbor Freight cameras when they are on sale and I have a 20% off coupon.

Did you have a hunt at store.bluecherry.net

I have had great luck with these instructions and by far the easiest method of installing zoneminder that I have found
my box is only 32 bit but the guide still works very well

Re: how do I find current run state ?

dunno,

running ubuntu ?

sudo service zoneminder status

but I don't think that will tell you if the cameras are working, guess you would also need to check mysql and apache to see if they are running as well

Re: ZoneMinder 1.25.0 extremely slow to log in et al

dunno,
maybe you could turn the user login off and use .htaccess

is it a server install or is zm running on a desktop install?
what's the load on the system?

maybe you could try and put a usb cam on the box and see if that will give you a stream? you can watch and see if the cam shows up when you plug it in with watch 'ls /dev -al | grep video' -n 5 -d use Ctl-c to quit you need to be careful with hardware selection and linux distros, there are really fe...

I wanted to try putting up a Slackware box with zoneminder 1.25 but my mojos not strong enough.

Thank You,

ftp event upload ?

Greetings ZM friends, I can't seem to figure out how to get ZM to ftp events with a filter. It worked when I tested it but the filter I used has a "date/time of now"

any pointers to how to use the filters, much appreciated
