Re: H264 Pass through VS X264 Server Load

If you have values set for "Maximum FPS" and/or "Alarm Maximum FPS," try clearing them. That worked! Thanks! I thought that it was best practice to put a value in a little above what your camera is set to so that if something went wrong it would keep frame rates down... Seems like I read that somew...

Re: H264 Pass through VS X264 Server Load

I enabled passthrough but now I get all sorts of errors... they mostly seem to be coming from the 2 Dahua cams and the Reolink. They jump between not Not Capturing to Capturing at 100fps but super weird stuff. see pictures. I can ssh in and grab any logs if you can tell me what to do to get them.

Re: H264 Pass through VS X264 Server Load

Sounds good! I'll do passthrough for a bit and then add jpeg saving to see what the load increase is.

H264 Pass through VS X264 Server Load

I got a used rack server that I thought would be my one box to rule them all thing with everything running on VMs. I thought I would finally have a system I could add plenty of cameras to and not have any worry about load but I am maxing out 12 cores on a xenon with the VM set to use 20gigs of ram o...

Disk efficiency

Is v1.32 really that more efficient than v1.30? My home server running v1.30.4 has a 4TB disk and my test server is running v1.32.3 is running in a docker (in Open Media Vault) on a separate machine with a total 500GB external drive (there is 112.3GB of media in a separate folder on the drive). Both...

Docker discussion

I bought a used duel quad core xenon server with 24gb ram to upgrade my zoneminder and it got me thinking maybe I should set it up as a nas/plex/zoneminder/etc. I haven't been super successful at setting up virtual machines in the past so I was thinking about running open media vault and running zon...

Re: Priorities ram? Cores? GPU?

Wow thanks for the comprehensive reply! I've been doing some research on the ryzen. What kind of camera setup do you have attached to that system?

2 or 4 wide scale enlarge on alarm

I think it would be nice to have more options on the Montage selections. most of my cameras are in pairs one looking left and one looking right so either a 2 wide scaled or 4-wide scaled would be nice options to have. It helps me keep straight in my mind which direction things are pointed. Usually I...
