Huge Performance Hit over 1.32.3

Life is good in 1.32.4 with 7 ip cams plus 1 4k with load factor running at under 2.
In 1.36, just 2 cams bogs down to load factor 2 and is unusuable with all 8 cams.
All I want is record plus liveview with no analysis.
Is this a 1.36 issue or am I misconfigured?

Re: Using Raspberry Pi 4's versus a old computer

i used a dell latitude e7450 i7-5600u 16gb RAM with 1TB SSD with 8 FHD cams at 5fps. the running load was very low (record mode), very reliable, and the internal battery pushed it along during short power outages. SSD never seemed to degrade as some had said it would. remote web access was fast - sk...

Re: configuring hostname in hikvision camera for use by rtsp

Re: Camera backdoor

A simple way to block the cams is to configure the router so that the cams can't talk out the wan. However, it is desireable to have the cams configured to set their clocks based on ntp. So there you want to block access to the cams but also allow the cams to communicate to the ntp server. All you k...

configuring hostname in hikvision camera for use by rtsp

When adding cams, one format used by zoneminder for sourcepath is tsp://<id>:<password>@ 192.168.1.54 :554/ch1/main/av_stream Instead I want to use zoneminder source path tsp://<id>:<password>@ FrontPorch :554/ch1/main/av_stream So basically I want to give the Hikvision camera a hostname of FrontPor...

Re: Disk Array for Laptop USB3

gosh that is an old post. I settled on a dell latitude e7450 i7-5600u laptop with 2tb ssd and 16gb ram with 8 network cams running 5fps at FHD. Its been solid. I can bounce around searching old recordings and its fast enough for me and my family. I wouldn't mind having more disk but for the trade of...

Re: Mixing Storage - Fast (SSD) and Slow (HDD)

Good! Could you tell me the concept - just enough for me to look it up. For example I know it is not something to do with "archive" because many people say that "archive" just sets a bit. I noticed that after v1.32.3 a new concept has been added called add storage. Should I look in that area? Thanks...

Mixing Storage - Fast (SSD) and Slow (HDD)

Is there a mechanism to store images on SSD and as the SSD fills up, then move the older images onto a hard drive? So to do this, zoneminder needs to support browsing the older images. For example, one could use an SSD to store the first 3 days of images. Then older images are occasionally moved off...

Performance Issues - Resolution

I finally got this thing working on my 8 IP cams. Previously I was running into cpu capacity issues when upgrading from ubuntu 16.04 / zoneminder 1.30. The following resolved the capacity issue for me. When defining each camera, under the "storage" tab, I set save_jpegs to disabled and video_writer ...
