Re: Recommended Hardware for Testing 64 Ip @720p 30fps

We have 50 IP cams on a 64 core system with 64G ram. We're pretty unhappy with it not in terms of raw performance but motion detection. Tried numerous things and can't get it right. Docs aren't much help. I was running it at home as well but my capture card died and I replaced it with a 16 channel S...

Need recommendation for a new capture card

My 16 port 240fps bluecherry PV-183 died and I need a replacement. I have 11 cams right now. Bluecherry eol'd quite a bit of product and never replaced it. They only have 2 v4linux capture cards available and they are both only 4 port. Can anyone recommend a new card? This is for home use.

Re: 1.28.1 - 'zmupdate.pl -c' exited abnormally, exit status

What made me think the loop was meant to exit was the "Update agent exiting" line of code below. I don't see how it could ever be executed. if ( $check && $Config{ZM_CHECK_FOR_UPDATES} ) { print( "Update agent starting at ".strftime( '%y/%m/%d %H:%M:%S', localtime() )."\n" ); while (1) { ... } print...

Re: 1.28.1 - 'zmupdate.pl -c' exited abnormally, exit status

Is there a process monitoring zmupdate.pl and restarting it if it dies? If so why not just run the zmupdate periodically versus checking to see if it dies?

Re: 1.28.1 - 'zmupdate.pl -c' exited abnormally, exit status

Not a perl expert but how do we ever get out of this this while loop? while( 1 ){ my $now = time(); if ( !$lastVersion || !$lastCheck || (($now-$lastCheck) > CHECK_INTERVAL) ) { Info( "Checking for updates\n" ); use LWP::UserAgent; my $ua = LWP::UserAgent->new; $ua->agent( "ZoneMinder Update Agent/"...

1.28.1 - 'zmupdate.pl -c' exited abnormally, exit status 9

Using 1.28.1 I get an occaisonal "'zmupdate.pl -c' exited abnormally, exit status 9" in my logs. Nothing seems to be wrong but I'm not really sure. Can anyone enlighten me as to what this error means and what might be causing it?

Re: timestamp variables?

http://zoneminder.readthedocs.org/en/latest/userguide/definemonitor.html#timestamp-tab I saw those but I remember using others that weren't listed there.

Where is the list of available timestamp variables? I've been looking and I'm sure I overlooked it.

Re: delete all events/images

I was hoping to do something like "delete from events" and "rm -r /events".

delete all events/images

I'd like to restart a system with no events or images saved on it. There is probably around 50000 events right now. Is there a procedure to follow?
