Re: Zoneminder not working, several errors

Are you using a capture card or USB cameras? If a capture card and it is old the newer versions of Linux may not support the card. If USB try PAL B and set the resolution down to 640x480 with a frame rate of 5 FPS. Also check the tmpfs (/dev/shm) for free space. No free space no video...

Re: zoneminder v1.32.3 on ubuntu 18.04 LEMP freeze randomly

Can not view your file. Things to check: Free memory in tmpfs (/dev/shm) lower camera resolution or add more RAM Run mysqltuner and make recommended changes Lower frame rate and resolution. If IP cameras do this at the camera. See the instructions at https://wiki.zoneminder.com/Ubuntu_Server_18.04_6...

I am running Zoneminder 1.30.4 on Debian 9.8 stable 64-bit GNOME and am getting several errors. I don't always get these errors, but often enough that zoneminder works ony half of the time. I attached images to the post.
How are your cameras configured?

Re: No events, no recording

Dear All, I installed zoneminder to my old IBM laptop with Debian on it. I had a lot of difficulty to add my IP camera to the system but finally I managed it. And after I thought I was okay I couldn't fined any recordings, no events, nothing. I can see the live camera footage with some time delay b...

Re: zmc exit with 213 / shared data not valid

Hi there, i made a fresh install of zoneminder to a raspi 3 according to the wiki. The only difference is,that i used the zoneminder package that comes with apt-get install zoneminder. :!: A minor differnce is that i am using a mariadb10 on another host and not locally. None of the monitors work. A...

Zoneminder on Ubuntu 19.04 (Beta)

See: https://wiki.zoneminder.com/Ubuntu_Server_19.04_Zoneminder_1.32.3 Zoneminder 1.32.3 is in the Ubuntu 19.04 (Beta) repository so the PPA is not used. I also use Mariadb as I had password length issues with MySQL. This is a preliminary install procedure and may change with the official 19.04 rele...

Re: PurgeWhenFull not working

In the past when the disk got too full the system would hang. I had to manually delete a bunch of events to get it working again. I've also found that 95% to start the purge is too much. 85% for a single drive system gives a bit of a cushion to let the system work.

Re: Alarm frames missing/dropping

I have never been 100% satisfied with Zoneminder on Debian 9. You can check the install procedures on the wiki to see if you missed anything.

Re: Zoneminder keeps crashing

200 may not be enough. I have a server with a lot of folks viewing montage so I set connections to 1000.

Check your memory especially tmpfs. Linux uses half of the RAM for tmpfs and Zoneminder can fill that space, /dev/shm, if you use high resolution camera settings.

Re: Zoneminder keeps crashing

Run mysqltuner to see recommendations. Note that the value may not be in the my.cnf or one of the other config files for the database server but the server is using a default value (151 for Mariadb). It is possible the my.cnf is pretty bare. You can add a value to the file: [mysqld] max_connections=...

Re: Camera not working

By offline do you mean the pc is not connected to a network? If so with a USB local camera it should not matter. I set up my test PC with Debian 9, loaded up Zoneminder 1.30.4 per the instructions in the WIKI and connected a Logitech USB V-UBK45 camera. Running Local, Pal B, 32 BIT colour, 640x480 w...

Re: What is the likely cause of pixellation?

Thanks bbunge and jwarfin. It's a rainy day here today so it's a good time to rebuild the PC with Bionic Beaver and 1.32.3 I'll report back. If you are interested I've updated my install script to install Apache2, Mariadb, PHP and Zoneminder 1.32.x See: https://wiki.zoneminder.com/Ubuntu_Server_18....
