Setting Nimble Streamer caching via GUI

Nimble Streamer can be run all by itself and its behavior may be controlled via configs. However, WMSPanel provides controlling and reporting capabilities for Nimble to make the process easier.

As described earlier, Nimble has rich caching feature set: disk cache for VOD streaming and RAM cache for live re-streaming.

Now WMSPanel allows settings up cache size within its server control GUI. All you need is to go to Servers menu, select a server to control and click on Edit to see the form shown below.

Please also learn more about latest VOD cache control features here.

BTW, the sample form which you see above shows one of exiting Nimble Streamer servers used for two use cases:

It also has RAM and CPU level alert set up to send notifications after reaching 20% threshold.
