Raspbian Install + Benchmark

Post by snake » Mon Jan 14, 2019 6:01 am

I tested out an RPI3 and wrote up some notes. An install process is in the writeup, as well as on https://wiki.zoneminder.com/Raspbian. Because I am not allowed to attach pdfs here it can be downloaded from https://git.steakelectronics.com/adming ... d_Testing/
Includes tex sources in addition to pdf, in case you don't want to open a random file.

Overall, the RPI3 will work for low resolution and low fps cameras (think 320x240), but it is not advisable for HD cameras. Users may have better luck using the RPI3 as a ZM Client, or camera (see https://wiki.zoneminder.com/Single_Board_Computers ).

As filesystem writes are a bottleneck on the RPI, it's may be possible to get a performance boost from an SSD or high speed SD card, but such endeavors may not be worth the effort.

So, the RPI3 can be used, if you have one sitting around, but be aware that it won't do much.
