     Will real time backup have a detrimental effect on server performance? Do you recommend doing backup on a schedule (LAN not WAN)

    Hi Tim,

    I don't think real-time will create a huge load to servers, however, it creates loads to your network and the HDD of backup storages. So the bottleneck might be the throughput of network and physical HDDs, not the performance.

     

    Yes, we recommend scheduled backup via LAN.

    Hi CMChiu - 

    can set the backup storage give 31 days video file? 

    It depends on your storage. If your storage can store more than 31 days, then it can give you 31days.

     

    If 4TB can storage 40days data. How the backup work? 

    It keeps writing into the HDD, until space is full.
    Then Nx will start to recycle and start to discard the oldest files.


    reach 31days data will override the old data or continues backup till 40 days than override?

    Backup, until space is full.

    The only option I see is Network Shared Resource

    Is this SMB only? How can I enter ftp credentials? what other protocols are supported?

    Thank you

    Whilst the release notes for v2.5.0 says;

    • "Storage Backup – Users can now set up scheduled or real-time archive backup of high-res, low-res, or all streams from selected cameras to local, NAS, or even cloud-based storage locations (e.g. ftp sites, Amazon Prime Storage, etc)"

    I don't think there is a way to actually configure a FTP or cloud-based storage location.

    I think what the release notes is referring to, badly, is the fact that the Storage API/SDK could allow someone to develop their own storage integration. Apparently there is an example FTP server application: https://support.networkoptix.com/hc/en-us/articles/202856206-Where-can-I-find-the-Nx-Witness-SDK-API-

    For me, I am investigating the best path to get secondary storage setup in AWS. So something like AWS Storage Gateway would be the easiest for those looking to get off-site storage working without having to develop or support anything custom.

    Is there a way yet to archive data to a NAS after so many day on the local server?  So i want 2 weeks of High and low rez stored on the recording server, but on day,15 i want o move only the high rez off to a NAS for long term storage.

    I am not sure what the settings are for this...
