    As video surveillance use grows in commercial, government and private use cases, the need for low-cost storage at scale is growing rapidly. BVMS, Bosch cameras, HPE hardware and SUSE Enterprise Storage provide a platform that is an ideal target for recording these streams. There are numerous difficulties around storing unstructured video surveillance data at massive scale. Video surveillance data tends to be written only once or become stagnant over time. This stale data takes up valuable space on expensive block and file storage, and yet needs to be available in seconds. With this massive scale, the difficulty of keeping all the data safe and available is also growing. Many existing storage solutions are a challenge to manage and control at such scale. Management silos and user interface limitations make it harder to deploy new storage into business infrastructure. The solution is software-defined storage (SDS). This is a storage system that delivers a full suite of persistent storage services via an autonomous software stack that can run on an industry standard, commodity hardware platform. Bosch, Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) and SUSE have partnered to deliver the benefits of SDS to the video surveillance industry. Using SUSE Enterprise Storage™ on HPE ProLiant DL and Apollo servers in a Bosch video surveillance environment simplifies the management of today’s volume of data, and provides the flexibility to scale for all enterprise storage needs. The full description can be found in the attached whitepaper.

    Related Products: BVMS SDK, Cameo SDK, BVMS  Overview: Analyzing BVMS systems interaction with BVMS SDK based application is a challenging task. One needs to determine if the issue is based on wrong implementation of the BVMS SDK functionality, wrong programming practices, functionality and runtime behavior of BVMS system with SDK functionality or BVMS SDK issues. In order to troubleshoot BVMS SDK or Cameo SDK application support needs the following information and logging. Please prove the following information to support. 1. Detailed description of the expected behavior of the SDK functionality. 2. Detailed description of the actual behavior of the SDK functionality. 3. SDK Components What type is the standalone SDK application (based on ClientSDK, ServerSDK, or CameoSDK) and on which machine is it running? Are there additionally client scripts, server scripts or workstation startup scripts? 4. SDK Interactions Do SDK components interact with remote Operator Clients? Do SDK components interact with the Operator Client UI? Do SDK components control devices? Do SDK components link to 3rdParty devices or applications? 5.Environment Which shared resources are accessed by SDK actions? (Dome cameras, AMG, Operator Client UI) Do SDK components interact with an unreliable environment? (Unstable network, offline devices, offline PCs, etc.) Do SDK components properly handle offline situations? (offline devices, configuration changes, etc.)  Please provide source code and/or Log files The optimal approach is to provide both source code and logging for the problematic BVMS SDK application. If it is not possible to provide the code, we will start the troubleshooting process based only on the logging. 1.Source Code Provide a little sample application that illustrates the BVMS SDK issue and list the reproduction steps. 2.Logfiles Add log outputs to the SDK application functionality. The logs should illustrate which BVMS SDK functionality was called at which time. Provide the logs to support.   List of Typical Mistakes that are often seen when troubleshooting BVMS / Cameo SDK based applications Use of Thread. Sleep() in event handlers - Consequence: loss of events in customer SDK application. Implementations that are not thread safe - Consequence: unexpected SDK application effects Unintentional introduction of multithreading issues by using timers - Consequence: unexpected SDK application effects Application without "speed control" - Consequence: operator overload in case of high event frequency Lack of configuration change handling - Consequence: data inconsistencies in SDK application (access to no longer existing devices) Lack of traces/logging in SDK code - Consequence: not detected malfunctions and troubleshooting difficulties Lack of error tolerance in SDK code - Consequence: unhandled exceptions in SDK application / script Lack of exception handling - Consequence: SDK application crashes

    Related Products All Bosch encoders running firmware 4.0 and above Question How can I set, clear and check virtual alarms via CGI? Answer  You can use virtual alarms within encoders as a trigger to have other events take place. This is an example on how to integrate 3rd party devices/software to trigger an event to take place on the encoder.  This event could be used to change any variable via ATSL (Alarm Task Script Language) - example below Virtual Alarms via CGI Set Virtual Alarm: http://160.10.92.40/rcp.xml?command=0x0a8b&type=F_FLAG&direction=WRITE&payload=01&num=1 Clear virtual Alarm: http://160.10.92.40/rcp.xml?command=0x0a8b&type=F_FLAG&direction=WRITE&payload=00&num=1 Check virtual Alarm: http://160.10.92.40/rcp.xml?command=0x0a8b&type=F_FLAG&direction=READ&num=1 Virtual Alarms in ATSL if (VirtualAlarm(1)) then Relay(1) := true; if (!VirtualAlarm(1)) then Relay(1) := false;

    Related Products Bosch Recording Station Video Jet X Series BRS   Question Is it possible to control an AutoDome connected to VideoJet X Series via Bilinx?   Answer In BRS 8.8.1 Bilinx over Encoder only works for devices connected via VSDKPluginModule. Current supported devices are VIP-X1600-XFM4B and VIP-X1XF. VideoJet X series are connected per default via VCSModule, which does not support Bilinx communication. To be able to control Bilinx devices on VideoJet X series please configure the following work around: 1. In BRS Configuration > IP Cameras and encoders > Scan network (VideoJetX is found) and add VideoJetX device to BRS 2. Click VideoJetX and click Edit 3. In tab General settings select Device Type BVIP H.264 4. In tab Dome settings mark Activate and select Connection Bilinx/IP Dome Now the AutoDome can be controlled via Bilinx. Note: Due to performance reasons do not change the encoder stream from MPEG-4 SH++ to H.264 streaming! Only change the device type in BRS.

    This article shows how to configure Input Alarm and later search for them in the Event search using Web Interface. There are only 3 different search parameters for Event type search, which are "All", "Motion" and "Alarm". Once can search for any alarms during the set time period and channel and in this way indirectly to filter for Input Alarm (if only Input Alarm triggers Recording for a particular channel). It is not possible to directly narrow the search for particular Alarm type (ex. Input alarm). 1.Configure the Input Alarm. Go to: Settings - Alarm - Input Alarm. Click Enable and Chose the respective Input (from 1 to 16), then click Record Channel and Save.  Note: The other Settings like Buzzer, Display Mon. A can also be configured but is not a must for performing Even Search. Schedule the recording. Settings - Schedule: Chose the days of the week, the time and enable "Alarm" Set the recoding stream. Settings - Storage - Recording: Chose the stream to be recorded. 2. Event Search - Chose the respective Camera (that recorded on Alarm Input) and search for "Alarm"
