    Related Products: IP cameras, Configuration Manager, BVMS Configuration Client   This article provides a background information about syslog, tips for 3 rd party Syslog server options and step by step instructions how to configure, activate and collect the syslog. General information: Syslog feature is implemented in all IP BOSCH Products. The BOSCH IP cameras as network devices can continuously send system messages via Syslog to a Syslog server software. This function should first be activated and configured. Once configured syslog will allow a continuous monitoring information even throughout a complete IP camera power cycle (reboot) as the camera starts connecting to the syslog server IP as soon it is getting back online. Syslog can be useful for analyzing issues that are unpredictable and difficult to reproduce. 3 rd party tools as Syslog server: There are many different monitoring tools available on the market. Examples of some easy tools to start working with can be e.g.: PRTG NETWORK MONITOR from PAESSLER Kiwi Syslog Server EventLog Analyzer from ManageEngine Example configuration for KIWI syslog free edition to receive and save the syslog send by the camera. Syslog server software must be installed on PC/Workstation that is on the same IP-network as the camera/encoder. One should check the size of the log file per a day and be sure there is enough storage capacity. 1. Enable the logging of the Kiwi software. Access "Setup/Rules/Default/Actions/Log to file", check the box for “Log to file”, then browse to the path where the log files can be saved.   2. Add the IP address of the camera(s) to "Setup/Inputs". Click on the address box, type in the address of the camera, click “Add”, then “OK”. (The Free Edition can log a maximum of 5 cameras.)   3. This point should be done after the camera is configured to send the syslog data. Open the Kiwi software and select “Manage” then Click on “Start the Syslogd service”. Log information should start to scroll in the Syslog main window. How fast or often messages appear depend on which debug command was provided by Tech support Configure the camera to send the syslog data The configuration can be done via the Web Interface of the camera, Bosch Configuration Manager (stand-alone configuration software) or BVMS Configuration Client software (part of BVMS management system). The layout of the above 3 interfaces is very similar. The following steps and screenshots are done for Configuration Manager. 1. Ensure that the Date/Time of the Syslog PC, camera(s), and recording system are synchronized (as close as possible) 2. Enable the Time Stamping and ensure that it is set for milliseconds. a. NOTE: The time stamp is important for troubleshooting. 3. Navigate to Configuration Tab “Network/Advanced/Syslog”. Enter the IP address of the Syslog Sever PC/Workstation and click the “Save” icon. 4. Navigate to Configuration Tab  “Service/Logging”, then Debug Logging. At the Even Logging text box the debug command that was provided to you by Bosch support team. If no debug command was provided, use: syslog_dbg. Click on the “Save” icon. Collecting the logs Once the issue appears, note the date and time, collect and provide the maintenance.log from the camera and the syslog saved at the of the Syslog Sever PC/Workstation.

    Potential for Data Inconsistency Issues on E-Series Storage Systems With the controller firmware 11.50.1 and newer version like NetApp controller firmware 11.50.2 an issues are fixed by NetApp, which enforce an immediate update of all E2800 iSCSI Storage Systems (their controllers). In July 2019 BOSCH announced the need to update from all former NetApp controller firmware 08.30.40.00 to newer versions. At that time the Firmware for NetApp E2800 controller recommended was version NetApp Firmware 11.50R1. This is also announced by NetApp on their support websites (see https://mysupport.netapp.com/). Bosch approval 31st of January 2018 Bosch approval 7th of May 2019 Bosch approval  20th of September 2019 not approved NetApp Firmware 08.30.40.00 no longer allowed for usage NetApp Firmware: 11.50.R1 no longer allowed for usage NetApp Firmware: 11.50.2 currently shipped by Netapp via BOSCH NetApp Firmware: 11.50.2P1 11.50.3 11.60 Please follow our BOSCH Knowledge Base and monitor for updates at this article for important news. Eventhough NetApp inbuild functions for BOSCH video optimized recording 24/7 and generic firmware is used at E2800 iSCSI storage systems, BOSCH is evaluating new firmware versions provided by NetApp on a regular bases. The BOSCH submodel ID 356 ensures that the NetApp system is optimized for 24/7 video recording. Products affected: All DSA E-Series (E2800 12-bay) and DSA E-Series (E2800 60-bay) Example product variants: DSA-N2E8X4-12AT Base unit 12x4TB High-performance and high-capacity storage system base unit with iSCSI disk arrays, single controller. DSA E2800, 12 x 4 TB HDD, Order number DSA-N2E8X4-12A DSA-N2C8X4-12AT Dual controller unit 12x4TB High-performance and high-capacity storage system base unit with iSCSI disk arrays, dual controller. DSA E2800, 12 x 4 TB HDD, Order number DSA-N2C8X4-12AT Note: There are other models with various HDD capacity (e.g. 8TB harddrives and larger) available For more details visit the BOSCH product website Summary of issue NetApp® has become aware of issues that could occur when an E-Series controller reboots at certain points during the evacuation of data from a drive that is performed as part of the sequence when a drive is being failed by the controller. As a result, there is a small possibility of data inconsistency on controllers running certain versions of E-Series SANtricity® OS controller software.   Issue Description First announced in 06/2019: The issues are possible on E-Series controllers running 8.30, 8.40, 11.30, 11.40, and 11.50 versions of E-Series SANtricity OS controller software. The overall probability of these issues occurring is very low, but RAID 1 volumes have a higher probability of encountering the issues than other RAID levels or NetApp Dynamic Disk Pools. These issues do not affect traditional RAID volume groups that have no global hot spare drives because drive evacuation does not occur in this configuration. For information about fixes in these releases, view the readme notes for each revision release. Workaround No workaround available. Controller Firmware update is needed. HDD Firmware update is not in relation to the descdribed issue here, but it is in general recommended to install the latest offered HDD firmware that is recommended by BOSCH and NetApp. The same applies for HDD firmware.   Solution: Update the NetApp Controller Firmware Upgrade E-Series SANtricity OS controller software to the latest applicable revision release for each platform as soon as possible. Please reach out to your local BOSCH technical team and BOSCH BT-SC/ETP-MKP team to ensure that the relevant NetApp Firmware has been approved to be usable for 24/7 video recording and replay use case. Even the global NetApp Firmware can be installed on BOSCH submodel ID 356 Where to get the Controller Firmware All customers with a full NetApp NOW support account can download the controller firmware by using the own NetApp user account. All other customers are requested to contact the BOSCH Support organisation.

    In many cases a minimum and maximum retention time needs to be defined in a video surveillance systems due to legal requirements. While the minimum retention time defines the time period for how long video recordings need to be stored, the maximum retention time defines after which period of time the recordings have to be deleted. Thus, the minimum retention time is going to influence the amount of storage needed. The higher the minimum retention time the more storage space is required. Hence, the storage space needs to be large enough to store the recordings for the minimum retention. For the maximum retention time this doesn’t have to be the case. Still users might be confused why recordings gaps might appear sort-of randomly, if the system does not have enough storage space to keep all recordings until the maximum retention time is reached. To understand what is going on we have to remember the principle of the VRM block assignment first. For each camera in the system the BOSCH Video Recording Manager (VRM) generates a list of recording blocks (LUNs) on which the camera can next record. Therefore, the VRM makes an estimation based on the data rate and the amount of data of each camera in the system (global optimization). Basically, the VRM predicts when which camera needs a new block and always lists the block which will be the oldest block at the time the camera needs to record on the next block. One could think of it as a “next oldest block” estimation done by the VRM. But the prediction of the VRM might differ from the reality (mainly because of variance in recording bitrate) and this can cause recording gaps if the storage space is not large enough to support the maximum retention time. Let’s have a closer look on the following two cases: Sufficient storage space for maximum retention time Insufficient storage space for maximum retention time Sufficient storage space for maximum retention time In case of sufficient storage space to fulfill the maximum retention time for every camera in the system no random recording gaps will appear, because the VRM will always assign a block containing recordings, which are older than the maximum retention time. Thus, for each camera the recording blocks will be kept until the maximum retention time is reached as illustrated in Figure 1. Figure 1: Enough storage space to cover the maximum retention time for each camera of the system Insufficient storage space for maximum retention time In case the system is designed such that the storage space is not large enough to store all recordings from all cameras until the maximum retention time is reached, the VRM will of course still do its estimation and predict the oldest recording block when a camera will ask for a new block. Assuming an ideal setup (with ideal network connection where each camera has the same data rate and all cameras record the same amount of video data simultaneously), the oldest block would always be assigned by the VRM. Hence, no recordings gaps should appear for recordings older than the minimum retention time, compare Figure 2. This is was most customers falsely assume or expect. Figure 2: Customer expectation of the system behaviour in case of insufficient storage space to cover the maximum retention time for each camera of the system However, in reality the stated assumptions do not apply. Network connection, data rate, amount of recorded video data, etc. varies. Thus, the “next oldest block” estimation of the VRM can differ from reality. Since each camera already got its block list from the VRM and records according to this block list, it can happen that not the truly oldest block is used and recording gaps appear as shown in Figure 3. Figure 3: System behaviour in case of insufficient storage space to cover the maximum retention time for each camera of the system How to avoid or minimize this effect To avoid this effect of random recording gaps simply add enough storage to your system. To get the best out of your system in terms of storage usage, the optimum would be to set the maximum retention time to storage limit, see Figure 4, but that is almost impossible to realize in practice. Figure 4: In principle a maximum retention time set to the storage limit would avoid random recording gaps Option 1 to minimize the effect in practice is to estimate the maximum retention time so that it will not exceed the storage limit of the system as illustrated in Figure 5. Figure 5: Maximum retention very close to the storage limit will minimize the random recording gaps Another less recommended option is to set a smaller time difference between the minimum and maximum retention time. But especially when the minimum retention time is shifted closer to the maximum retention time that introduces the risk that the VRM cannot free up storage space in case the minimum retention time is reached, which might result in a recording stop. Thus, we recommend to go for the first option. One last hint: Changing the retention time on a running system is not going to influence the retention time of already recorded blocks. but will of cousre only be applied to new recorded video footage. Hence, changing the retention time is no option for an immediate change of required storage.

    Upcoming with FW 7.10 and CM 6.20, Camera Trainer is a licensable Intelligent Video Analytics module that allows uses to define objects of intereste and train their own detectors for them based on examples of target objects and non-target objects. In contrast to the moving objects detected in general by IVA 7.10, Camera Trainer allows detection of both moving and non-moving objects, separates and immediately classifies them. Training can be done both on live video as well as on recordings available through the respective camera. The resulting detectors can be down- and uploaded for distribution to other cameras. The attached fact sheet lists the cameras that support Camera Trainer. The attached technical note describes in-depth what Camera Trainer is, how it works, what to use it for and what not, and how to configure it.

    Compared to hardware, in which it is relatively easy to define an end-of-support concept based on the expected lifetime, software behaves totally different. In theory, when the environment does not change, software can still be running ten years after it has been installed. As new versions of the software are released regularly, it is important for customers to know what they can expect from Bosch Building Technologies when the software is purchased. This document describes how Bosch Building Technologies handles the life-cycle of the BVMS, BIS, AMS, and APE, and in which state a specific release can reside. Additionally this document lists the up-to-date situation for all of those software packages.

    Related Products: BVMS, application crash, memory dump This article lists the scenarios in which technical support normally request dump file from a BVMS system. It contains general guidelines how to create a dump file for BVMS system and provides links to more concrete articles, that correspond to particular issues and exact steps to create a dump. BVMS dumps are needed to troubleshoot the following types of issues: Application crashes – dump is expected to provide more information about the cause of the crash and its origin. Memory or handle leaks – dump is expected to point to their origins Deadlocks, freezes and hangs – dump is expected to point to their origins Recommended tool to create BVMS dumps. The recommended tool is Procdump. It is a command line tool which must be started from the command shell. Development provides couple of .bat files that start Procdump with predefined parameters and cover the most common dump creation cases. The tool as well as the set of .bat files are attached to this article: BVMS_DumpTools_V2.zip The batch file names follow a naming guideline: <Executable>_<Dump use case> , where <Executable> is one of: ConfigClient ConfigWizard OperatorClient ManagementServer ArchivePlayer ExceptionTest and <Dump use case> is one of SingleDump TwoDumps DumpOnException DumpOnHang ActivatePostmortemDebugging There are 3 possible error scenarios and corresponding dump creation methods: Dump creation for reproducible crashes that trigger Windows Error Reporting Run the affected application/service (Operator Client, Configuration Client or Management Server Service) Reproduce the steps that lead to the crash Leave the Windows crash dialog open Run the corresponding batch file for creating a single dump: *_SingleDump.bat.

E.g. run OperatorClient_TwoDumps.bat to create two dumps of the Operator Client process. Note that by default, the delay between the two dumps is set to one hour (3600 seconds). Depending on the magnitude of the memory leak, you might want to increase/decrease the delay. To do that, edit file *_TwoDumps.bat: replace value "3600" by a value that fits your needs e.g. a value of "7200" will create two dumps with a delay of two hours.

    Introduction: Bosch has been providing 2 types of VRM packages: a 32bit and a 64bit version. Since VRM 3.82 we are only offering the 64bit version. As all of our released DIVAP IP units started off as 32bit VRM which includes a Transcoder service. Problem If you do not use the Start.exe included in the VRM Master Installer, you will not be offered the oppertunity to also upgarde the Transcoder. Just running the Setup_VRM_Service_<version>.exe found in the <Install\Bosch> folder, will cause the Transcoder service to stop functioning! This includes if the upgarde is done via BVMS installer. Since BVMS 10.0, VRM 3.82 "64bit" was implemented. Due to the fact that BVMS does not manage the transcoder, it was not installed. Also see Firewall settings: HowTo Configure Windows Firewall Rules, includes PS script to adjust the VRM 64bit and Transcoder rules. Solution Download the appropriate VRM version from our Downloadstore Run the Start.exe Deselect all components and choose only the Transcoder Service   Click on "Install" To confirm that the Transcoder is fully functional, open your browser and navigate to the VRM Monitor: https://<VRM_IP_Address>/ Log in with you Credentials

    BVMS Installer - Windows Pending Restart Message Issue:  The pop-up dialog window message: "Setup has detected a pending restart.  Please reboot the system and rerun the installation"  appears when attempting to run the valid BVMS windows installer package. BVMS Installer Pending Restart Message   Cause:  This is a known Windows specific problem when another (non-BVMS) installer does not properly manage its creation and deletion of the “PendingFileRenameOperations” registry key. The most common user created way for this key value to be left resident in the system is when an installation prompts for a restart, yet the system is not expeditiously restarted.     Resolution:  A. Restart the affected workstation B. If the issue still persists, delete the orphaned "PendingFileRenameOperations" registry key value Open a registry editor, such as Regedit.exe or Regedt32.exe.   Navigate to "HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\" In the right navigation pane, right-click the "PendingFileRenameOperations" key value and select delete Close Registry Editor. Run the software Installer again as Administrator   Note:  This message is not a Bosch product failure message. This is a problem within windows and it's registry clean-up handling.  This is a Windows work around.
