    Hi Reynard,

    could you please provide more info on your environment? 

    do you have hive servers located locally or all of them are speared in different networks? Do you send your API request to specific server with the camera or just random server? Does the issue occur for bookmarks located on all servers or only bookmarks from specific server can't be accessed?

    First of all, I'd recommend to run test where you'd be requesting bookmarks directly from the server that has them stored. This way it will be possible to exclude hive networking and locate the server with an issue.

    Can you tell which VMS build are you using?

    Hi Anton,

    Our servers are located in our datacenter rack. We joined a few failover servers that is on a separate network - the 2 locations are linked via layer 2 E-Tree.

    I'm sending the API request to a single server with multiple camera IDs spread across the servers in the hive. 

    We are running V5.0.0.34971 - we recently upgraded. Before the upgrade I could see that if a VMS started to re-index and do a storage scan, the bookmarks for that VMS would be pulled when the storage scan is completed. After the upgrade it seems like the API times out (what I'm guessing). Because I'm pulling multiple cameras bookmarks, I cant pinpoint why the API times out at times. Sometimes it happens without a VMS doing a storage scan.

    I will try to pull the camera information from the VMS it is loaded on and see how the API performs.
