I added some debug print statements to zmfilter.pl inside of the eval block hoping to see something blocking, but the code is executed at the exact time that I would expect. 10/20/09 20:39:03.789224 zmfilter[2911].INF [Scanning for events] 10/20/09 20:41:08.820503 zmfilter[2911].INF [Creating notifi...

Can anyone out there verify that this is not just my problem?

Someone else must be using 1.24.2 and email alerts?

You should also take a look at the post I mentioned (I wrote it) and there is a link to a script that I wrote discussed there that does a "Patrol" of camera presets for monitoring (recording) different areas of my home at different times using cron. You can adapt the code or at least the concepts in...

Ok... I looked at the code. if ( !GetOptions( 'id=i'=>\$id, 'command=s'=>\$options{command}, 'xcoord=i'=>\$options{xcoord}, 'ycoord=i'=>\$options{ycoord}, 'speed=i'=>\$options{speed}, 'step=i'=>\$options{step}, 'panspeed=i'=>\$options{panspeed}, 'tiltspeed=i'=>\$options{tiltspeed}, 'panstep=i'=>\$op...

What is the output of /var/logs/zm/zmcontrol.log?

It might output the command strings that are sent if you raise the DEBUG level, although I've never been able to get DEBUG to work on ZM myself.

What camera are you using?

The first thing to verify is that you can move the camera with the ZM controls. If that works, then we can get the zmcontrol command to work.

If you have a PTZ camera working on your system, you should be able to look in the /var/log/zm/zmcontrol.log file and see what is being executed when you move the camera with the ZM controls. I think it's: zmcontrol.pl --id=3 --command="presetgoto 2" I'll have to try this out when I get a chance, bu...

As an experiment I changed the FILTER_RELOAD_DELAY to 60, but the email still took 5 minutes to actually send.

I'm stumped!

Thank you for the reply! I was worried that no one cared for me...lol I had a look at the thread and in fact, my hostname is simply system-z, but my /etc/hosts is in proper order and most importantly, I don't think I'm using sendmail unless Mime::Lite uses it under the covers? I am able to create an...

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...
