mysql hogs cpu

Hi I have a four camera Atom D2700 server running ubuntu 12.01 and zm 1.25. I have a couple of hundred events and now the server has turned almost completely unresponsive. I suspect the reason is that the mysqld process hogs all the processing power of one core (according to top). Google hasn't been...

Re: Outdoor IR Cam choices

The Tenvis seems to be VGA, so don't expect much detail. I would categorize Tenvis as "crappy camera", but it might fit your needs depending on the area you are planning to monitor (only a single motorbike with the motorbike filling most of the image area? What kind of detail is necessary?) And reme...

Re: starter system camera, wired or wireless?

Experienced, almost master's degree level security specialist jumps in and brings new knowledge to ya all newbies (do I see you bowing? 8)): Foscam is sometimes adequate, low budget entry level camera. Probably can't get much better with your budget. Biggest con is poor resolution. Choosing a correc...

Re: InnoDB

Hello and thanks for your input. User selectable database system would be a nice upgrade for Zoneminder. I hope to hear from you soon in a form of a patch.

Re: Support for legacy USB webcams on 1.25.x

No experience on this library compatibility issue, but I was able to make an old Logitech webcam work on Ubuntu 12.04. Search the forum for mjpg streamer.

Re: eyezm gone from itunes?

When clicking the eyezm download link on eyezm home page (http://eyezm.com/files.php), it opens itunes on my computer and claims that eyezm is not available in my store, but is available in US store and asks if i'm willing to switch store. Have you tried to install using a computer? If this doesn't ...

Re: IP6C11-P3 configuration?

Does the camera work without Internet Explorer (ActiveX)? If not, probably quite impossible to use in ZM. If works in other browsers, try resolving the path the browser uses and use it in monitor settings.

Re: apache stops?

Is your distribution 64 bit? I had a similar problem which may produce the symptoms you have, but I was running 1.25. Didn't solve it though as I'm now running 32 bit on a different hardware. Zoneminder working ok until you view streams might be related to the *zms process. When zm hangs, does top s...

Re: Axis 2120 configuration?

If the camera IP address is red in zm console, then the problem is probably with shared memory settings. And make sure camera settings are correct.

Re: log errors opensuse 12.2

I googled this for you and it is in the forum link I pasted. " two versions of the RPM exists: ZoneMinder and ZoneMinder-MP. ZoneMinder-MP is build against ffmpeg (from the packman repository) and the other one only requires the official openSuSE packages." Never used Suse so my knowledge ends here.

Re: Newbie needs help with hardware and cameras

If you want image quality and/or day/night performance, i'd suggest you stay away from usb webcams. The best camera for you depends on your needs: - constant recording or motion detection. If latter, what technology - what kind of illumination, external IR is usually better than in-camera, especiall...
