email takes 5 minutes...

Why does the "Email details of all matches" filter feature take 5 minutes to actually send the email message in 1.24.2? This used to take around the same amount of time as the FILTER_EXECUTE_INTERVAL in previous versions. The zmfilter.pl log indicated that the email message was sent as soon as the a...

Well... I'm not sure that it helped, but I did it anyway. I'm still seeing major issues and it all seems to revolve around viewing events. After I attempt to view an event the system gets unstable and won't load other monitor windows or do much of anything. top shows low cpu and memory consumption a...

Fixed it..

I've fixed this for Arch Linux (The ZMLArch_1.24.2_2) version... It was a missing perl lib (even though there were no errors in zmfilter.log showing this). Execute as root: pacman -S perl-email-date-format I'm still seeing a few problems though. It takes 5 minutes for the email to actually send even...

Event generation and playback issues...

I"m not sure what I'm really seeing here but there are definitely some issues. When I try to play back events, they do not play smoothly even on my local LAN and sometimes seems to lock up apache so that nothing can be displayed from clicking links on the console. I just did a fresh install of 1.24....

Took your advice and created the partitions below: 10G / 2G swap Rest of the space /var So far...so good. The only issue I can see with Arch is that the 32bit version can't see beyond 3G of memory unless you recompile the kernel with some special flags set. Your effort on this LiveCD is very much ap...

Ok thanks!

I also found a small bug to fix in the next release.

In /etc/rc.conf you need to change "cron" to "crond" in the DAEMONS variable assignment in order for it to start at boot for those who need it.

Question about the events directory...

I did a clean install with your Larch CD 1.24.2 and found that it created a large /home partition that I was happy about. After the install I found that the events are still saved in the /var/lib/zm/www/events directory which causes the much smaller / file system to fill up after a while. I'm confus...

Can'd find way to create/edit zones?

What happened to the old "zones" button?

I just installed 1.24.2 and can not for the life of me figure out how to create or edit a zone? No zone button???

Should mention that it's the Arch Linux installed to hard disk version.

Ok... I got a little carried away and wrote a perl script to do what you described. Basically you can set up the script to run through cron and it will tell the remote camera to go through any series of presets and pause a specified amount of time at each one. All the while, it will use zmtrigger.pl...
