  1. Hello, sorry for the late response. I thought that I had the notification on. I'm running Raspbian Stretch which comes with motion according to documentation so I would say that I'm running the motionEye software. I changed the video from the Main Stream to the Sub Stream a few days ago and the CPU load decreased. I've adjusted frame rate and resolution many times and finally have them set for the least CPU load and best picture. The IP cameras Encode Mode are H.264. Thanks...
  2. Reference Installing MotionEye on Raspbian in the Networked Security Camera Tutorial: On a Raspberry Pi 3 B+, I installed motionEye on Raspbian. With only three (3) cameras (Dahua IP cameras) added to motionEye, the Raspberry Pi's CPU usage fluctuates between 77 and 82%. With four (4) or more IP cameras added, the Raspberry Pi's CPU usage is 100%. All motionEye settings are still set at default. When the motionEye server is stopped, the Raspberry Pi's CPU usages fluctuates between 0 and 5%. What changes in motionEye are necessary to reduce the load that the motionEye server puts on the Raspberry Pi's CPU? Is there a maximum number of cameras that should only be added to motionEye? Also, is there a proper way to log out of the motionEye's frontend instead of just closing the browser?
  3. I tried gathering additional information.
  4. I'm going to keep trying to figure it out.
  5. It was worth the try but the same errors are generated with a 32 GB USB Flash Drive is used to backup the 16 GB USB Flash Drive. Additional information is attached. Thanks.
  6. The USB Flash drives for the Boot and Backup drives are the same size. I wasn't able to duplicate the error today. A backup file was generated today but the size of the file is zero. I think I label the USB Flash drive for the Backup drive correctly in the bkup_rpimage.sh file. More information can be found in the attached files. Thanks...
  7. Reference How to Backup your Raspberry Pi SD Card section Backing up your Raspberry Pi to a USB Drive: I boot my Raspberry Pi's from USB Flash Drives instead of SD Cards. Several of them are enclosed in project boxes and enclosed cabinets bolted to the ceiling and wall. I'd like to setup automatic backups using this procedure. Although I changed the drive location in the bkup_rpimage.sh file (SDCARD=/dev/mmcblk0), it failed. The specific error is attached. Please note that only the drive location was changed in the file and the comments are still referring to a SD card image. Can anyone assist with fixing this? Thanks...
