Re: random crashing

Hi all, I've started receiving the exact same issue in the last couple of weeks with my set up that had been running fine for around 3 months prior. Did anyone find a solution to this problem? M Have you checked the resources the database server uses? Adding events means the database will need more...

Re: Unable to connect to ZM db.SQLSTATE[08004] [1040] Too many connections

Wherever the config file for mariadb is add the max connections line.

Re: High disk utilization

Are you using the systemd mount? If not i recommend you set it up again to use systemd. Instructions in the Zoneminder Ubuntu WIKI.

Re: Unable to connect to ZM db.SQLSTATE[08004] [1040] Too many connections

Linux distro and version? MYSQL or Mariadb?

You can add the setting to the /etc/my.cnf
[mysqld]
max_connections=1000

Restart mysql or mariadb

Run mysqltuner every few days to see where you need to make changes.

Re: High disk utilization

32 bit color may help a bit. Yes, lower resolution will help. You should be OK with the 74% give or take drive space. Just check the database resources (mysqltuner) to see if you need to allocate more innodb_buffer_pool_size. Might be good to put the database on another drive. Set up a drive purge b...

Re: No image/video

Strongly recommend going to Zoneminder 1.30.4. Anything beyond that version is in development and can have issues. True, you may not have your cameras configured correctly and as far as I know there is no patch required for Apache. See: https://wiki.zoneminder.com/Ubuntu_Server_16.04_64-bit_with_Zon...

Re: cameras don't display image from camera, windo just flashes on and off

If you used the install script from the WIKI then it is your camera that is not set up right.
For the USB camera try PAL B, 32 bit colour and 640x480 resolution.
For the ip camera use the string you used in VLC and the reported resolution in VLC with ffmpeg.

Re: Problem video export

Please check these settings in Options/Images:

OPT_FFMPEG (checked)
PATH_FFMPEG /usr/bin/ffmpeg

Make sure your frame rate is set at the camera and not i Zoneminder. Maximum FPS (?) and Alarm Maximum FPS (?) should be blank.

Re: Linux Mint 19 1.31.44~20180625162520

Mint adds a bunch of stuff you do not need. May I recommend you try Lubuntu 18.04 and install the minimal version.
And, I have not tested the scripts with development versions of Zoneminder.

Re: Preferable OS

18.04 is working well with ZM 1.30.4. I had to modify the install package to fix the API to run under Bionic and that file is hosted on my Google drive/Onedrive account which is not ideal but works. The shell scripts work very well to get the system up and running with little fuss. Only NGINX setup ...

Re: How can i divide recordings in 10 minutes with MODETEC

Modect should only record as long as motion is detected. If you get endless recordings on modect something is wrong with your settings. Mocord records in the 10 min segments and also flags motion.

Re: Zoneminder nginx issues

A bit more research reveals that the file nano /etc/default/fcgiwrap is supposed to be an override for the config file located in /etc/init.d/fcgiwrap. My quick test showed that adding DAEMON_OPTS="-f -c 1" to this file stops video streaming on working monitors. However, I am experiencing issues vie...

Re: trying to add first camera

Copy and paste is good. Two common errors: PATH_ZMS is not set to /zm/cgi-bin/nph-zms Camera resolution in Zoneminder does not match camera output. Use VLC (Tools, Media Information, Codec) to check camera Display Resolution. You may not need the port number in your source as rtsp is understood to b...
