Re: How to DOWNGRADE 1.32 database to 1.30.4?

I just had to do this myself. I solve the problem in a slightly different way... I ran zmupdate.pl it "upgraded" from 1.32 to 1.30. :) [root@zoneminder db]# zmupdate.pl Use of uninitialized value $Config{"ZM_DIR_EVENTS"} in pattern match (m//) at /usr/bin/zmupdate.pl line 81.

No log entries?

Ever since upgrading to 1.320.20180206gitga177d8e9.el7.centos, I've had an occasional problem where I'll find that zoneminder has "stopped." A quick "start" and everything is back to normal again. Today, I had some time to investigate, but found that when I click the "log" link, a "System Log" windo...

Re: How current is zmrepo-centos-testing?

Cool trick -- I saw a date in there, but thought that could also be the build date. I didn't know I could look for the hash. I've noticed that others here sometimes refer to versions like .34 or .37 -- but I don't see any branches or tags in git. Where do I find where these versions tie back to git?

How current is zmrepo-centos-testing?

How current is the rpm file provided from zmrepo-centos-testing? The version info suggests it's far behind, but the build date is fairly recent: Name : zoneminder Version : 1.31.1 Release : 1.320.20180206gitga177d8e9.el7.centos Architecture: x86_64 Install Date: Mon 19 Feb 2018 11:03:52 PM PST Group...

Re: Quick n dirty way to clone zones...

Nevermind -- I ended up just using mysqldump and edited the sql directly.

Quick n dirty way to clone zones...

I just used the gui clone feature to clone a pre-existing monitor but noticed that the clone doesn't clone the zones alone with it. Is there any way to export and import the zones of a monitor from one to another? I looked at zmcamtool.pl, but that doesn't do this type of thing.

Re: Can't see my cam video but can record it?

Milesnz, From /zm/index.php, click on Log Leave that window open, and then try to view a monitor. Do any recent log entries appear? Anything that might help clue you into what may be happening? Also, so that others here can get a bigger picture, please do the following: From /zm/index.php, click on ...

Re: Time gap occurring when alarm triggers...

The short answer to your question about time gaps is that you don't have all your motion zones sensitive enough to catch the jogger. However, what you will likely find is that, if you actually did set all the zones to be sensitive enough to pick up the jogger (joggers feet), you will likely also pi...

Until I do more testing, I'm going to assume this has something to do with the size of the jpg images, and, perhaps, storage throughput issues.

Re: Where to change ZM memory usage above 50%?

Good idea. I get the same 404 error though. I'm not sure why that button does not work. Try doing that from our main github site because that is where the files live: https://github.com/ZoneMinder/ZoneMinder/tree/master/docs Knnniggett, From the README.md file: "The latest version of these docs can...

Re: 32-bit color vs 24-bit color test results...

While you are at it, it would be helpful if you ran this test with no value in the Analysis FPS field. That feature was donated by a volunteer fairly recently and has not received thorough testing. It would be nice to have some data verifying this feature does what it says without any side effects....

Re: Monitoring ZM state

Some quick ways to check the health: look at "ps" output and check to see if zmc processes exist. No zmc == no working monitors. Query the "Logs" table for recent entries. It's fairly noisy and contains timestamps, so should have recent timestamps. Can't query table? mysql trouble. Timestamps too ol...

Re: Time gap occurring when alarm triggers...

Remember my argument about too much info and TLDR syndrom? Yeah... No replies, just as I thought.

I've been playing around with the settings -- turns out I can drop that gap time considerably by setting JPG compression back to the defaults of 70.

Re: CentOS7 Nothing in /var/www/html

One of the first things I do when installing Centos 7 is swap out firewalld for iptables.

It looks like the instructions here should work if you want to do this:
