[support] dlandon - Zoneminder 1.36


Recommended Posts

  • 3 weeks later...

Someone know why zoneminder create several event directory when begin a new video all under 1MB with the timesize from 2 seconds to sometime 2 hours that is a still image with up to 2 seconds moving image at the end, only the marked directory from the below print screen have the one hour length as I set it, but sometime the video is only 15 minutes, other times is 2 hour, the rest have the same 2 seconds to 2 hour video for each hour under 1MB in size, sometime only artefacts, the directory for that date is full of such kind of event folders, at each good video 10-20 event directory's are under 1MB video.

I disabled detection on Mocord, I enable it and the same result, on other modes is more than a mess, no one can distinguish what is doing :)

The machine is an Intel 7700 with 16GB RAM, storing on a 3TB WD HDD total RAM usage about 31%, the setup is No encoding/pass thru, minimum buffer 3 maximum 20, with decoding for monitoring, cameras setup to output 10FPS's at 1080p h264, 8 cameras + one that is h265AI because has no h264 option pass thru as well.

 

This issue appeared in about last two updates, I used the same cameras in older versions and no issue like that encountered, only that last several releases after each update the database is corrupted and need a fresh reinstall.

 

The Unraid version is: 6.9.2 stable

Zoneminder won’t start today; seeing this in logs: Dec 25 17:56:24 9158f1bee996 zmupdate[17233]: ERR [Error reconnecting to db: errstr:Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock' (111) error val:]

Using the included database and haven’t made any changes to Zoneminder other than maybe it updated? Any ideas

Hi All,

 

I had been using Zoneminder docker with Unraid for quite a while. It was an older version. I upgraded to the recent version, and things stopped working. Is there a way to revert back to an older version of Zoneminder docker? I'd like to revert back for the short term (and debug why things stopped working in the long term). Could someone provide any pointers for reverting back to the old version? 

 

Also, whenever we upgrade Zoneminder, there was a suggestion to delete Zoneminder appdata and then, reconfigure. Did I understand this right?

 

Thanks.

My Zoneminder instance also stopped working recently:

It seems like SQL server crashes and restarts

This could be because you hit a bug. It is also possible that this binary
or one of the libraries it was linked against is corrupt, improperly built,
or misconfigured. This error can also be caused by malfunctioning hardware.

To report this bug, see https://mariadb.com/kb/en/reporting-bugs

We will try our best to scrape up some info that will hopefully help
diagnose the problem, but since we have already crashed, 
something is definitely wrong and this may fail.

Server version: 10.3.32-MariaDB-0ubuntu0.20.04.1
key_buffer_size=134217728
read_buffer_size=131072
max_used_connections=1
max_threads=153
thread_count=6
It is possible that mysqld could use up to 
key_buffer_size + (read_buffer_size + sort_buffer_size)*max_threads = 467428 K  bytes of memory
Hope that's ok; if not, decrease some variables in the equation.

I moved the Zoneminder from Unraid to Synology DSM on a DS1815+ box, I believe that is the best package, I see that you stop the support to 1.34, anyway, thank you for the work you put in to create the package, is working fine with 3.5GB of total RAM used and nine 1080p pass through cameras :D

 

I will always be afraid to upgrade it, due to database corruption, but don't care, never upgrade :D, has all I need.

 

Excellent work.

Speaking of upgrade… in Unraid I have been ignoring its beckons for me to update it for a few weeks. Anyone have any idea If update is solid and or what update addresses?

It would appear I broke my ZM install.  It has been down for a while waiting for a new data drive.  I replaced the drive, set the mount name in the docker to match but when I tried to start ZM it just crashes.  It appears to be an issue with the database connection.  Is there a way to repair this?  ZM startup log below.

How can I disable the https requirement? I am putting this through nginx (swag) and it is balking at the http. I'm guessing this is an apache2 setting but I'm not sure how to access the right file to edit.

 

I think I'm close with the index.php file within /www/ but don't want to break it.

 

Thanks! :)

I had to shutdown my unraid server today to replace some cooling fans in the server case. My wife uses Zoneminder daily to keep track of visitors to our property. When I brought the server back online zone minder kinda starts but doesnt. I'm getting this in the log, seem slike an update error for linux?

Can someone share their redacted subdomain.conf for using ZM with Swag reverse proxy(that works with ZM Ninja app) please?

server {
    listen 443 ssl;
    listen [::]:443 ssl;

    server_name your_subdomain*;

    include /config/nginx/ssl.conf;

    client_max_body_size 0;

    location /zm {
        include /config/nginx/proxy.conf;
        proxy_pass https://your_internal_ip:your_port/zm;
    }
}

Hello,

I am sorry to keep beating this horse, but it is so frustrating.

I love Zoneminder.

I just can't understand why the database is so fragile it seems every time that my server has a bad shutdown, I lose the database and have to completely reinstall.

I get it I should shut it down correctly, I really do get it but sometimes *(%^%* happens.

Most recently I was using Tdarr to transition to h265 and my cache filled up, couldn't do a clean shutdown.

rebooted, 20 dockers still worked no issues, Plex all of the arr's, calibre, my homeassistant VM all worked fine, Zoneminder toast!

That was 2 weeks ago, I decided to try shinobi again, don't get me wrong, there are some things in shinobi that I love, the reduced resource use for one, but I still like Zoneminder more.

Yesterday I reinstalled and set ZM up again, but used my head. I set it up then shut it down and copied the app data folder to another drive.

About an hour ago, a storm knocked my power out. Guess what? Yep everything came right back except ZM.

This time it wasn't too bad, pasted the copied files to zm app data, overwrote the existing and ZM started. The old images aren't seen by Zm but because it was only a day, easy to delete.

 

OK I know this has been quite a rant, my question is this.

Is there something that I am missing, is the data base really this fragile?  If I used a separate database, would it help?

 

CA Backup and restore only allows one instance per machine, correct, IOW I backup and restore all or some but I can't set up one session to backup ZM and another to do all others Correct?

Is there a script anywhere that shuts down a specific docker, and copies its app data to a mapped location?

 

Rant complete.

Thanks for any answers provided.

I too just had this problem. I couldnt get zoneminder to work. I renamed the appdata zoneminder folder to zoneminder.backup and reinstalled the docker image and zoneminder will now start. But none of my cameras or settings are there. Is it possible to copy something from the old folder to the new one to get my settings back or? What am I doing wrong here?
