Setting zma/zmc niceness

Hi there,

I am running ZoneMinder in a non-dedicated server. The server is also performing other tasks… some of them may happen to interfere with ZoneMinder.

From my understanding, zma and amc are the components that really need to run in "real time". I would like to set their niceness to -10 or even -15… is there an option somewhere for that? I couldn't find it in the docs.

Edit: meanwhile, i'm using a script to renice processes every hour:

Code: Select all



for MON in 1 2
        for CMD in zma zmc zmf
                curl -s -XPOST -d "user=renicer&pass=readonly" "http://localhost/zm/api/monitors/daemonStatus/id:$MON/daemon:$CMD.json" | grep -oE 'pid\s*=\s*([0-9]+)' | sed -nE 's/pid\s*=\s*([0-9]+)/\1/pm' | xargs renice -n $PRI
