Custom Archive Process

Post by RoySalisbury » Sat May 19, 2018 7:32 pm

Currently you have the ability to archive files to a directory or FTP server. There are plenty of other archive places that I am sure people would love to have. So have about a "custom" process. You execute a process (.exe, .bat, .cmd, ect) and pass it a set of parameters for each file that you are going to archive. Then based on the exit code of the process you determine if it was a success or failure. If success, you do whatever else you do, if failure, you queue it back up for retry in 'X' amount of minutes.

Currently I have BlueIris send the files to an FTP site on a Raspberry Pi (gotta love these $35 computers). Then I wrote a process that watches the FTP upload directory, parses the file name, and then sends the file to the cloud for storage (azure blob storage) and adds an entry into a database. Then, my website (also in the cloud) can access the data but I also have a full backup of every image and motion detection event that has ever happened.
