Source in orange

Post by frankge973 » Mon Mar 12, 2012 1:12 pm

What does means the ip source address in orange color?
What I have to check?
No events are acquired but I'm sure that conf is ok

Help me please!
First of all I underline that I haven't changed nothing besides the location of events, mounting an external HD as a local filesystem folder and creating links to that folder. It appeared all ok for first hours. I checked the day after and bad surprise, I still have the source in 'orange' color, no events recorded. If I change the mode from Record to Mocord or others, it will turns for a while green. If I open zones window, no image appears, but if I open the live image by clicking on its name, I can see it.
What can I do?

Well, before changing anything, why don't you post the /var/log/syslog when restarting Zoneminder?

Hi,

You have a lot of these errors:

Code: Select all

ERR [Shared data size conflict in shared_data for monitor xxxxxxx, expected 328, got 316]
This could be fixed, replacing the following in the file /usr/local/share/perl/5.12.4/ZoneMinder/Memory.pm

Code: Select all

$arch = int(3.2*length(~0));
with

Code: Select all

$arch = 32;
Also have a lots of warnings:

Code: Select all

WAR [Corrupt JPEG data: 1 extraneous bytes before marker 0xd9]
I do not know if you described your system setup. I got this errors when my IP-Cams does not have good connection. Check if connecting a direct lan cable fixes your problem. This could confirm the bad quality of the connection, again, I am assuming that are IPCams.

Code: Select all

Mar 27 00:06:36 videoserver zmc_m3[29464]: WAR [Select timed out]
Mar 27 00:06:36 videoserver zmc_m3[29464]: ERR [Connection dropped by remote end]
Mar 27 00:06:36 videoserver zmc_m3[29464]: WAR [Unable to capture image, retrying]
Start with small buffer settings and working in monitor mode, so the troubleshooting is easier.

Hope it helps,

PacoLM

Excuse me. 2 days ago I tried to restart the PC and looking into zoneminder portal, all CAMs were in green....
I checked also yesterday, still green....
But I checked again now and :-( ORANGE!!!
Why?

Yes, my CAMS are IP cams, someone with ethernet cable, someone with Wireless, but orange is also those with cable....
What can I do?

Thanks

The buffer settings are on each of the monitors you have in your system. There's a tab called Buffers, you should have the defaults if you do not know where they were. Try lowering them to half of the settings. Also you could try to lower the resolution of your cameras. Post results and logs.

Hope it helps,
