Re: My Zoneminder Experience from scratch

I wrote out a 5 page guide to setting up Zoneminder from scratch from my own experience to help out others new to Zoneminder, but it's full of links to articles and forum posts. I kept getting "Your post looks too spammy for a new user, please remote off-site URLs" So I revised it at least 4 times ...

Re: How many cams on a Single-core Celeron 1.5GHz, 1GB RAM ?

I haven't been able to find any documentation explaining what the load numbers mean. I assume it refers to CPU load, but not exactly sure of the scale. At first I thought it may be a percentage, but it seems too low. Can you explain what would be considered "low" and what is "high"? I'm running Zon...

Re: Zoneminder stops at 12 monitors.

My core i7 desktop with 16GB crashes with any browser if I try to view 10 or more cameras above 20fps. Can't confirm that. Viewing 12 cameras on a dual core CPU with 20fps each seems no problem. The server side is working as well (although of course load peaks). A good idea posted was to grab a str...

Re: 2x5Mpixel and 6x300Kpixel camera

Hi fi2. Thanks for your contribution!

Which cameras do you use?
I'm using 10 Axis2100 (4 on motion, the rest just for viewing) on a Duron1,4Ghz with massive load (3-4). Unfortunately, that's definitely too weak hardware I guess...

Re: Hardware specs for a flexible solution

Hi! unprofessional reply: don't know, try and error (and keep us updated) I have seen 3cores for 11 remote cams @ 320x240 which are okay with 1.24.3.
