This is probably what you are looking for: ZM_OPT_FAST_DELETE Normally an event created as the result of an alarm consists of entries in one or more database tables plus the various files associated with it. When deleting events in the browser it can take a long time to remove all of this if your ar...

Ack - I'm posting a new message so this isn't lost in the shuffle. When I first posted by modprobe config, I forgot to remove a last card option for my cheap pico2000 card. I removed it in my original post, but if you saw it ending in 77 (with an extra tuner number) that's the wrong version.

I suspect a configuration issue with your kodicomm clones, but I'm far from an expert. Here's why. Your load without ZM running is where it should be. You run ZM, and your memory looks fine (loads free, no swap being used at all, which means no disk IO time lost on capture). But zmc running 60% of y...

I would have suggested you try defining smaller zones, but you said this these are in mocord (analysis of 25fps at 640x480 is a lot of work). So it's probably something else. But isn't load proportional to the # of processors? Your load of 8 is equivalent to my load of 1, so anything under 8 means t...

I have no idea what telemetry over coax means, but I had an image "jumping" problem (in fact I think I used exactly the same term) on a cheap pico2000 card from Ebay when I was using more than one of its inputs (it's a 1-chip, 4 port card). So I set "captures per frame" in ZM from 1 to 2, and the ju...

I think I had the hanging problem when I tried to use cambozola (sp?) to stream in IE. When I uninstalled it and switched over to FF (I may have just reinstalled ZM since I'm not very good at Linux) I haven't had any issues since. Not saying that's your issue, but my faint memory tells me I've seen ...

Oh, and be careful about running zmfilter too often. If you don't limit the number of events it returns, I'm not sure if you're causing problems on your box by potentially running overlapping instances of it (for example, if it runs longer than 5 seconds, then tries to run again, I don't know if it'...

Hi Haus, My SMTP is working fine and I don get the emails but when the zmfilter there is a 30 seconds delay from the time the alert happens and I get the email. My 'ZM_FILTER_EXECUTE_INTERVAL' is set to 5 seconds. For some reason zmfilter seems to take that time to process the email. Ok - we posted...

In your first thread someone pointed a link to another thread I had replied in. There is a perl script in the WIki that's pretty much a drop-in script, but you do have to add your own 'what to do' upon motion detection. Here's mine: #!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use ZoneMinder; $| = 1; zmDbgInit( "...

Opera 9.51 on Windows XP SP2 only works if I set Zoneminder options, "Override automatic detection of browser streaming capability", to "yes". Then I can stream. If I set that to "auto", the default, Opera only shows stills and reverts to my ZM_WEB_H_REFRESH_CYCLE of 15 seconds.

First, coke, you are my hero. :) It works like a charm, thank you! nuck, I must have an incorrect setting then. When I try to use Opera I don't even get the choice of "stills" or "stream" at the top of the montage window like I do in Firefox - as if ZoneMinder doesn't know that Opera is capable of s...

The script example in the wiki is great for this. It's under the FAQ, "How can I use ZoneMinder to trigger something else when there is an alarm?" It will run through your monitors and alert you very quickly if there is an alarm state. It may need slight modification depending on your exact needs, b...

I've been plagued by the same issue. Opera won't work for me because it doesn't do streams, it's no better than using IE in that case. So I open the montage view and put it on top of the console window. Then the console can do whatever it wants in the background; I never really look at it as long as...
