Re: High Ram usage

I've definitely been able to downgrade from 1.35.18 to 1.35.16 without a problem. The only problem I have had in the past is finding the packages. If your system keeps old packages around then they should be in /var/cache/apt/archives. If you are running motion detection then each zmc should be seei...

Re: High Ram usage

I was able to get my cameras working thanks to some help from the folks on the Slack channel. Apparently, zmc is queuing all frames in between keyframes. My misbehaving cameras were set to use H.264+ encoding which @iconnor says has a very high keyframe interval. Once I turned off H.264+ memory usag...

Re: High Ram usage

That thread is specifically for new features in 1.35.*. I don't think that it is the appropriate place for this discussion. I'm hoping that this thread will get some attention.

If I can get some kind of handle on what is going on, I will make an issue post on the ZoneMinder github.

Re: High Ram usage

I answered before I had done much testing. I see it now. Some zmc processes are using enormous amounts of memory, even in Monitor mode.

Some monitors use a reasonable amount and some use a stupid amount. I cannot figure out what causes the difference.

Re: High Ram usage

Have you read this post about the updates from @iconnor?

It looks like shared memory is no longer used to communicate between zmc and zma. This means that most of what you have allocated for ImageBufferCount is just wasted. It is recommended that you set it to 2.

Re: Alarmframes (*-analyse.jpg) broken since 1.35.5~20200716162846-bionic

That's got it!

I still have to use 1.35.5~20200616165015-bionic because of the rotation problem I reported in github.

With 1.35.5~20200722224526-bionic, I'm now seeing alarm frames generated with proper images, but they don't show motion outlines. They show a red-outlined frame, but blobs are not outlined.

Rotated camera, montage and ZmNinja broken after upgrade

I just upgraded to 1.35.5~20200714143209-bionic and some things are broken. I can get video from most of my cameras, but my camera that is rotated 90 degrees shows mostly misplaced scan lines with an occasional flash of the non-rotated image. The montage on the web interface and on ZmNinja is broken...

Re: Zone scheduling

I do this using some scripts that I wrote. The zmctrl script is used to set zone parameters. The dosunrise script is an example of a cron script to use along with the sunrise script to schedule zone parameter changes.

You can see an example of doing this in the zmgetvid script of my zoneminder-scripts project.

I don't understand some of the ZoneMinder zone types

The "Preclusive" zone type is pretty obvious and I use it frequently, A couple of the other zone types have me a little baffled. While I think I understand the "Inclusive" and "Exclusive" zone types from a technical point of view, I don't really understand how they would be used. I have read the Wik...

Re: master - 1.33.9~2019061210557-bionic Web console won't stay logged in

I've just started seeing this too. It's not so frequent as to make it unusable, as some people were reporting before. I just notice that I find my session logged out after I've been away from my desk for "a while". I'm turning on debug for web_php, so I'll see if anything turns up.

Problem with audio playback in events on Firefox

I'm using Zoneminder 1.32.2 from the Ubuntu master PPA and I recently bought a Hikvision DS-2CD2442FWD-IW. It has audio input and the audio is working perfectly with Zoneminder. I have noticed, however, that the audio is not present when playing events in Firefox. The audio control on the video play...

Re: [POLL] Does anyone use Event Montage?

I kind of like it, but I don't understand it. Is there an explanation somewhere of what it is doing? I don't understand how it chooses events and how it chooses what to display for those events. I don't understand what the blue blob sliders are for and I don't understand what the red graphs represent.
