How to resolve issue with WIN and Crash

Links to this post
I have noticed that although we are installing software & Hardware on WIN machines, we have no clue what has failed or is crashing or hanging the system.. pls use the following to know how to stress the WIN machine for their drivers and crash the PC.. and then diagnose the problem..

— microsoft documentation —

Driver Verifier is included in Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, Windows 2000, Windows XP, and Windows Server 2003 to promote stability and reliability; you can use this tool to troubleshoot driver issues. Windows kernel-mode components can cause system corruption or system failures as a result of an improperly written driver, such as an earlier version of a Windows Driver Model (WDM) driver. This article describes how to use Driver Verifier to isolate and troubleshoot a driver in the system.

Dear All,

We had a project with 65 MX Camera which required to be view on a MXCC on Laptop which was traveling all over the world. The easy option was to create a NAT for each of the camera but this was not possible due to high cost of the Router which could handle 65 camera.

The alternate solution was to create a VPN Tunnel for the Road Warrior (Mobile Users).. this would require additional hardware at the site. the solution is as follows

Why We Forget History; Short Memory

Links to this post
In the fast few days Anna Hazare has created history and opened a new chapter in India, is what i have heard and majority of Indians Believe that to be true.. 

By God this is a very very sad day because we fail to read history, such blackmail of democracy has never ever benefited the mass.. Pls kindly look back in India History.

The shut down o f Mills by Our Own George Fernandez in Mumbai, be it the cloth Mills or Coca Cola, was hailed as mass movement by a very very honest and clean George Fernandez, It was required at the time to help the mass, the mill workers..  the intent and purpose was very very clean and had no political color nor any motivation other than to help Mill Workers. 

But what the status today, these Mill have shut down and the Mill Owners are selling the land at HUGE Price, the system always work to the benefit of the have and never for have nots.

How to Compare the Min Lux Levels in the dataSheet of the Camera

Links to this post
Time and again this question is asked, if a 0.002 Lux Camera is better than a Camera with a Specification of 2Lux. This mail and Work `sheet is a attempt to address this.
The Pdf Attached provided the formula for the maths which proves which camera is better than the other for the similar light conditions and similar FPS. If you look at most data sheets the Min Lux level is mentioned as 0.65 Lux @ F1.0, what is not mentioned is the the following data
1. Reflectance of the test Subject
2. Shutter Speed Used
3. AGC used or Not
4. IRE at which the Lux Level was measured

How to Analyze the TCP/IP Network for IP Video Surveillance

Links to this post
Over the year i have worked as a system Integrator, later with the distributor and now at the OEM's.. and these are my observations

The system Integrators expectation from the OEM's to resolve the issues faced, helped each OEM's to squarely blame the other for the problems.. by pointing out the immediate cause for the trouble but not analyzing the full issue and concerns. HOW CAN the SI or WHAT MUST the SI Do in such a situation?

How To Decide The Nos Of Disk on The NAS Or Storage Server Should Have

Links to this post
After working for a Year and studying the various method used by SI to Size a NAS and also noticing the problems they face. I have documented the following
The parameters that are essential for Selecting the NAS or Storage server
The normal process is to use the storage calc and find the total TB for total Nos of Camera and then study the spec of the NAS for the TB of storage.. The difficulty with this approach is that some NAS perform as required and most do not.. We end up blaming the NAS for non Performance but fail to understand that we have sized the NAS incorrectly..
The important param which is very very clear from the various post on the Internet on storage calculations is IOPS.. Unfortunately there is no documentation on this for Video surveillance.
I shall attempt to do so.. pls kindly note I am not an expert in Storage and have no great experience with the various NAS available in the Market.
All expert on storage are welcome to point out any error or technical issues with my documentations
