What the “Storage state failure” alarm message means in Operator Client?
A video surveillance system uses two different types of communication:
Some events, for example the "storage state failure" does not seem to impact the system's capability to record, but it does indicate that the specific camera is struggling to continuously record.
To ensure a stable and reliable system, it is highly recommended to investigate all events that are enabled by default. A sign-off on the system's delivery should only be done without any active system events.
The "storage state failure" alarm doesn't always mean a recording error unless there is a gap at the time of the error for that camera that reported it.
It is an error of the iSCSI protocol; it means that when the camera releases the connection for a certain block it has not received a response back from the iSCSI target in a certain time.
