List of Storages

FindFace Security uses the following data storages:

  • Tarantool-based biometric database that stores biometric samples (feature vectors) and face identification events.
  • Main system database based on PostgreSQL, that stores internal system data, dossiers, user accounts, and camera settings.
  • Directory /var/lib/ffsecurity/uploads that stores uploaded dossier photos, video files, and such event artifacts as full frames, face thumbnails, and normalized face images.
  • Directory /var/lib/ffupload/ that stores only such event artifacts as face thumbnails.

Biometric Database Galleries

There are 3 galleries in the Tarantool-based biometric database:

  • ffsec_dossier_face: biometric samples extracted from dossier photos.
  • ffsec_events: biometric samples extracted from faces detected in the video.
  • ffsec_monitoring: biometrics samples from the active dossiers under watch.
