Re: Rebuilding for processor specific opt..

You can easily saturate disk IO. Especially if you do something like raid5 (you didn't say that you were, but lots of people do that). You need to understand that ZM is almost all disk writing, so you need to optimize for that case. That's a fair point. i have those same cameras, and am running on ...

Re: Rebuilding for processor specific opt..

With regard to optimization and a cmake build, one thing I found is that I couldn't make the optoin actually change optimization. When I would add -DCMAKE_CXX_FLAGS like -O0, internally it did things like this: DHAVE_SENDFILE4_SUPPORT=1 -O0 -march=native -Wall -D__STDC_CONSTANT_MACROS -O2 I.e. it ad...

Re: HIKVISION DS-2CD2032-I camera

So I'm convinced I'm not getting a knock-off. The primary difference I think (I have slightly different models) is that there is a US and Chinese hardware version. What you probably got is the chinese hardware with hacked firmware, which means the firmware updates from Hikvision will not work (or w...

Re: radius integration

I haven't done any research on this but another possibility if you need just "on/off" type authentication as opposed to authorization levels is turn off zoneminder authentication and use radius integration with apache2 instead (I assume it can do that, I've only done ldap).

Re: Flicker viewing LCD readout

The issue is probably that the refresh rate of the LCD has blank periods that are long enough that the shutter speed of the camera occasionally hits on a dark spot. If your camera allows it, you can try adjusting the shutter speed there (even though it is video it should have an electronic shutter t...

Re: Suggestions for wall mount displays

Looks like a real possibility. Are the data lines exposed on the board somewhere that would be easy to splice into with the resister set needed? Or am I going to need to separately build that into the cable that plugs into this? I was just about to cover up this hole and do something different, like...

Re: Suggestions for wall mount displays

Well, just in case anyone else decides to try -- the straightforward attempt did not work. Took a USB extension, spliced it into the existing wire and plugged into a real Aplle adapter. It flashes briefly like it might charge then says "cannot be charged with this accessory". I'm not sure the voltag...

Re: There is no timeline in the majority of cameras

Hopefully someone more knowledgeable about the security system will respond, it sounds as though the problem lies there. I do not use it and have not paid any real attention to it.

I assume you have checked the "restricted cameras" and experimented with different settings there?

Re: There is no timeline in the majority of cameras

Unfortunately the translator makes it difficult to understand what you are seeing. Are you sure that your cameras are recording? What function code are you using (I do not know how these translate, but in English MoCord, MoDect, NoDect, Monitor, etc.)? Does the console shoe the existence of events b...

Re: CPU Load?

Sorry, Hopefully someone else will reply. I have no choices on format, only H.264. I did set mine to highest quality (that is an option, i.e. in words). Mine is set to VBR, though I did not experiment. I set my iframe to 25, it defaulted to 50, and again I did not experiment and do not know what is ...

Re: Foscam FI9903p setup no video on monitor

The most frequent issue for me is a mis-match of width and height specified in zoneminder. Be sure you get those correct. VLC will show you the display resolution if in doubt (tools, codec info, and display resolution -- NOT resolution which usually has 2 pixels added each way for me). Also, check t...

Re: zoneminder on raspberry 2

I assume you used a packaged build. Different volunteers build those packages and some are kept more up to date than others. If there is no package later, you can try to look at who is doing them (should be accessible by tracking back to where the packages are kept) and asking, or your alternative i...

Re: CPU Load?

I wonder if you need to look at load over longer intervals? I cannot explain what you saw exactly. zma is the analysis tool that does motion detection, zmc is the capture component, and zms (which is also nph_zms) is the outbound streaming component that let's you view. zms (in my opinion) is a bit ...

Re: Cams in different networks

So for the upload issue, im guessing if the router supports it, i can put a rule in (QOS or something?) to say the cam's data is the most important and this will stop any slowness? It depends entirely on your provider (and if you have the same one), but I would not assume just because you are physi...
