Re: ZM Docker only?

Like many things there are those who like containers and those who don't. I am of the later and feel a container puts an extra burden on a processor that could be used elsewhere. I also feel the same about VM's for production equipment. While getting the packaged install script to do more functions ...

Last I knew 1.30.4 worked well in Debian without any "converts." Of course you could switch to Ubuntu....

Re: continuous record not obeying Section Length ?

Set up a test PC with Ubuntu Bionic and ZM 1.30.4. Connected an IP camera using Remote and set Section length to 60 on Record. All events came out to 59 or 60 seconds.

Is your connection to the camera using ffmpeg stable? Loosing connection could cause the events to be shorter.

Re: disable camera, not working ?

Under Source click on the camera (usually the IP address of the camera), change Function to None and uncheck Enabled. Click Save

Re: sound recording

Audio recording should be included in future releases. However, you need to be aware that audio recording is still illegal in some areas without permission. It usually falls under wiretap laws like it does in Pennsylvania, USA.

Re: Cannot View Event Video

You may want to check your install procedures. Use this: https://wiki.zoneminder.com/Ubuntu_Serv ... e_easy_way

There is a script that make the install easy. You will still need to set up the cameras. Also, use a minimal Ubuntu install with a net install .iso.

Re: Zoneminder stops and won't restart

What instructions did you use to set up Zoneminder?

Check free space in tmpfs.
Run mysqltuner. May need to add resources in connections and innodb buffer pool size.

Re: zmc cpu usage with monitor and h264 passthrough

I set up a monitor with h264 passthrough for an 8MP camera. CPU usage on an i3-4130T is around 70% of one core: 6937 www-data 20 0 1183804 735668 672544 R 70.4 9.1 0:50.17 zmc Should it be this high when no users are actually looking at the video stream?

Re: SOLVED: Ubuntu 18.04 + nginx cgi issue - no streaming

The 18.04 WIKI was updated with the information I gave you. I should update the 16.04 WIKI but the 16.10 and 17.XX WIKI articles will be obsoleted when I get around to it.

Re: Server OS Upgrade Performance hit (Ubuntu 18.04)

Did you do a minimum install with a net install iso? I use that in lieu of a server install as I can get a really minimal system. I do not need the containers or other stuff in a server install to run ZM. I have not noticed a performance hit with Bionic but have to admit my test platform uses just a...

Re: How to create image of ZM computer?

@bbunge I knew I could count on someone to sneer :) Note that the OP was asking to back up the whole system, OS and all, not just the ZM database. It's no good having the full ZM database and blank hard drive. There could be a lot of configuring and installing to do before you get to restore the ZM...

Re: ZoneMinder + FreeNAS SMB

I am not an "expert" with FreeNAS but I see it has the ability to use the ZFS file system. Using the NAS with a RAID or a single drive should work. NFS export using the systemd mount may be the best for performance but could pose some security complications. SMB on the NAS will also work with the sy...
