Re: Frames.ibd, Logs.ibd, Stats.ibd too big

DB log settings are in console - options. You can and probably should stop DB logging if you aren't using it. I think stats is also there somewhere. In Debian based ZM I haven't noticed .ibd files becoming too large. The ibdata file used to get too large (in 1.28) but that was resolved with newer My...

Re: Camera configuration backup

Use mysqldump from the terminal. Script it via cron.

Re: ESP32 Cam not working properly with ZM

ESP32 is not commonly used. You are somewhat on your own. Better off getting a known working and stable brand, unless you want a project to dig into. See https://wiki.zoneminder.com/Hardware_Compatibility_List

Feel free to post your findings with the ESP32 there.

Re: Feedback - Poor Performance Using 1.34

Debian/Devuan install instructions are at https://wiki.zoneminder.com/Debian.

Chimaera is not released yet. 1.34 works fine on Beowulf using the zm repo. Have not noticed any significant slowdown. "Works on my machine"

CV binary w/out Zoneminder

I don't see a binary that I can pipe video into and get motion detection / computer vision results from. For example, ffmpeg has its libraries (which ZM uses) and it also has the single executable which can do most (if not all) the same functions. OpenCV is only a library from what I can tell. Zonem...

Re: database very large Frames.ibd: 34G Logs.ibd: 584M

Did you upgrade from 1.28 or earlier? See https://wiki.zoneminder.com/MySQL#IBData_files_Large Having ibd files too large can be from having the earlier DB format, MyISAM. Starting from 1.32, ZM uses innoDB which should avoid this issue. In ZoneMinder 1.28, I had an issue with the ibdata1 file in /v...

Did you set a custom storage area or are you using the default? The default is at /var/cache/zoneminder/events. Do you see videos there? If you set a custom storage area, did you set it up properly?

Re: SQL Error Starting ZoneMinder

There's only one directory for buster: /var/log/zm/. Syslog also can fill up. Settings are adjusted in option...

The apache config seems to be missing a bit:

Re: New Storage issue

There is no need to create the /zoneminder/events folder. In fact, the paths don't look like that at all in custom storage (with default settings). See what one of my folders (/videos/One_10tb/) looks like: /videos/ ├── One_10tb │   ├── 10 │   │   ├── 2020-11-13 │   │   │   ├── 4263714 │   │   │   │...

Re: Dual Lens Camera

I checked but the user manual doesn't detail the path... You can view the feed from the cameras webpage right? Usually if you right click the feed to view in a new window it's /mjpg/video.mjpg. What if you right click and open the 2nd feed in a new tab? Also sometimes it will announce a path when it...

Re: More than one view in montage

Typically malformed images like this are due to the source settings being wrong in ZM. Probably wrong resolution.

Post camera settings, ZM source settings, and then try the video in ffmpeg or vlc. What do those output for video resolution and details?
