Re: 3 * HikVision 4MP cameras taking too much CPU

Hello guys, I just wanted to share a good news. I have changed my "config" meaning that before I was running ZM over Virtualbox on Ubuntu 16.04 and now I am running the same ZM version on a Debian 9 over Proxmox hypervisor and it works like a charm. So not sure if this is linked to the OS or the vir...

Re: 3 * HikVision 4MP cameras taking too much CPU

Thank you guys.

I will then ensure that the ffmpeg installed by default (Ubuntu 16.04.3) has HW acceleration and if not enough I will decrease the Max FPS and the cameras while we get potentially the fact that we can use ZM just for viewing without Motion Detection.

Thanks and good week to all

Re: 3 * HikVision 4MP cameras taking too much CPU

But if the camera is saving direclty on the NAS, and ZM is not doing motion detection etc.. why does ZM needs to decode the images? I was just looking to use it to view the streams from a web page ... Isn't there another parameter that can disable this detection without disabling the cameras otherwi...

Re: ZM hardware video accelerated

Bonjour ZD59, I am under Ubuntu 16.04.3 and using the default library ffmpeg version 7:3.2.4-2~xenial maintained by djcj@gmx.de. Not sure if this is really the one which includes or not HW decoding. My CPU is an i7-7700T which should normally be overkilled. At the moment my CAMs network is down and ...

Re: 3 * HikVision 4MP cameras taking too much CPU

It is trying to connect to the camera, it is a little stupid, it doesn't know you didn't power the cameras and is coded on the expectation that cameras are running 24x7, and loss of connection is bad, which for security cameras it is. Problem is it attempts connection as fast as it can, lots of tim...

Re: 3 * HikVision 4MP cameras taking too much CPU

Hello, I am adding 3 cameras (8Mb and 2 of 5Mb) and I am therefore concerned that it will fall apart. What is strange and therefore I am wondering if my issue is not linked to something else is that when ZM is off I run at: 1 [ 0.0%] Tasks: 149, 475 thr; 1 running 2 [## 1.3%] Load average: 0.00 0.03...

Re: ZM hardware video accelerated

Hello I am interested to know as I was using ZM but my CPU with 5 CAMs was 80% with an i7 7700 so I was either thinking to buy an external video card which I am not sure should bring that much optimization if ZM was using intel HD. Maybe I need to install Windows with Blue Iris as it seems to be wor...

Re: Saving h264 using feature-h264-videostorage

Hello, This seems what I am looking for. I have currently 4 Hikvision cameras in h264 1920*1080p 25fps and this drives my CPU crazy therefore if the video could be displayed without being treated as jpg that would be awesome. I use ZM to combine the views on a PC, recording is done directly from the...

Re: 3 * HikVision 4MP cameras taking too much CPU

Thank you Avro125 to have shared your view. FYI I met HikVision in a conference event and I asked them. Basically what I understood is that the streams in H264 require a lot to decode and therefore with an intel graphic chip is usually not enough. So they were recommending to install a dedicated Nvi...

Re: zmfilter ERR Can't execute filter 'SELECT E.Id,#012

Here is an example of what I am seeing.I assume I can tweak ZM to have one event per hour? What are these events based on? If the duration is 00 does it mean like that during x number of minutes not detection was done (Cameras with VBR) so nothing has been recorded since the previous file? That seem...

3 * HikVision 4MP cameras taking too much CPU

Hello, I have an i7 7700 with 16Gb of RAM running ZM 1.3 within Ubuntu 16.04.1. My issue is that the entire server runs at more than 60% CPU (with only 3 cameras). Initially I wanted to detect alarms based on sub-stream like 640*360 (15fps, CBR, max bitrate 2048Kbps) and then record at max resolutio...
