Re: Record High-res H264 streams 24/7 with low CPU Load

ZM isn't deleting my 24/7 recordings; they're all sitting there in the filesystem which is why I need that crontab triggered script to stop it filling up. I store the 24/7 high-res mp4's in a different storage area (#2) on a mounted filesystem and tell zmaudit to only deal with storage area #1 which...

Re: Record High-res H264 streams 24/7 with low CPU Load

I've not really noticed before but yes... mine does the same thing - shows a max of 146 recordings for the injected captures. At a guess it'll be something to do with the 'unofficial' way zmrecord is injecting SQL records; but that's just a guess. However, I don't run zmaudit on my Big RAID of 24/7 ...

Re: Record High-res H264 streams 24/7 with low CPU Load

I don't have any cameras with audio capability... which will make replicating your issue tricksy :( However, this does sound like an ffmpeg related problem. The output files should not be 0 bytes. The MySQL error about CaptureFPS also points towards ffmpeg as the status output from ffmpeg is what's ...

Re: Object detection and event filters problem.

I said I'd upload my final script and I have in a thread on the User Contribution section of the forum.

Autodelete events without objects detected to dramatically reduce event count

I've been using Asker's most excellent motion detection stuff for ZM (https://github.com/pliablepixels/zmeventnotification) to 'declutter' ZM with dramatic effects. Of course, Asker's zmeventnotification extension's prime purpose is to filter events for actual objects of interest before sending you ...

Re: Object detection and event filters problem.

That's a much cleaner solution than my Python hackery. It seems to be working well.

I've created a pull request for the small changes to objectconfig.ini and zm_event_end.sh. Please excuse me if the whole fork/push/pullrequest thing isn't right - not something I've really used before.

Re: Object detection and event filters problem.

Never having written a line of Python code in my life :shock: but this seems to work. Lives just before the line "# end of matched file" # record number of objects removed by almostmatches if g.config['write_image_to_zm'] == 'yes' and args['monitorid'] and pre_pastdetections > 0 and post_pastdetecti...

Re: Object detection and event filters problem.

What do you mean when object detection matches a previous detection? I have "match_past_detections=yes" in my objectconfig.ini. I've only seen this for single events with motion detection called once. I do see quite a lot of "27/02/20 14:36:21.272223 zmeventnotification[10335].DBG [main:827] [PAREN...

Re: Object detection and event filters problem.

Good News(TM). After exhaustive testing of some 17 hours :) that seems to have resolved the issue. Thank you. There is one related, minor, problem for events where the object detection matched a previous detection. In this situation, zmeventnotification quite rightly does not update the Notes with "...

Re: Object detection and event filters problem.

Installed and monitoring. Will report back.

FWIW, please do leave the Storage Path as $5 - a belt'n'braces check never goes amiss and it's only an fstat(2) call for bash; probable more efficient than a string compare with "*detected:*" :)

Re: Object detection and event filters problem.

In short.... dunno about 34885. My zm_event_end.sh deleted it as there was no "detected:" string. I've changed my zm_event_end.sh so it'll save a copy of the event data before asking ZM to delete it and I am seeing quite a few (four since I made the change 15 mins ago) deleted events that have an ob...

Re: Object detection and event filters problem.

For the moment let's not conflate two unrelated issues into one. Sorry - getting over enthusiastic :) It's sooooo close to being brilliant! The changes I made were specifically to make sure the detection text was not overwritten for long running events where ZM added motion notes after the detectio...

Re: Object detection and event filters problem.

Ahh... yes - just found other events that zmeventnotification didn't 'see' before I upgraded to 5.9. MariaDB [zm]> select Id,MonitorId,StartTime,EndTime,Notes from Events where Notes NOT like "%detected:%" and StorageId < 2; +-------+-----------+---------------------+---------------------+----------...

Re: Object detection and event filters problem.

Sadly, version 5.9 seems to be missing events. I have an event 34541 on Monitor 5 at 10:01:23 to 10:01:31 that, obviously, shows up in the zma logs but there's no sign of it in the zmeventnotification log :( "grep 34541 zm/zmeventnotification.log" produces nothing. Events 34550 and 34552 were handle...

Re: Object detection and event filters problem.

Oh dear - that isn't nice :-(

For my purposes, would it be possible for zmeventnotification to pass the original detection string to zm_event_end.sh ? (as arg 5 so as not to break existing uses).
