[KBA-00193] Most common events triggered in Omnicast™

Many events can be triggered in Omnicast™. This article summarizes the most common events generated by an Omnicast™ system.

Event Description
Archiving queue full This event is issued when the Archiver cannot write the video stream (packets) to disk as fast as the encoder sends it or when there is not enough CPU to process the video stream received from the encoder.
Disk load is over 80% More than 80% of the disk space allocated for archiving has been used. This situation may be caused by an under evaluation of the disk space required or by another application that is taking more disk space than it should. If 100% of the allotted disk space is used, the Archiver will start to delete old archive files prematurely to free disk space for new archive files, starting with the oldest files.
Unit not supported This event is generated when the Archiver discovers a unit type that is not supported by the system
File deleted This event is issued when a video file associated to a camera is deleted prematurely, i.e. before the prescribed deadline specified by the retention period value in the Archiving tab of the Archiver. This happens when the Archiver runs out of disk space and is forced to delete the older files to make room for the new files.
RTP packets lost This event is issued when there are RTP (Real-time Transport Protocol) packets that the Archiver never received. This could happen if the packets have been lost on the network or if the Archiver does not have enough CPU to process all the packets received on the network card.
Signal Lost This event is triggered by the unit when a camera stops sending its video signal. Only a camera malfunction or a disconnected coaxial cable can trigger this event. Network problems will not trigger this event.
Transmission Lost No video packets have been received by the Archiver for five seconds.
Unit Lost The network connection to the camera is lost.
