Media server performance metrics update

We've recently updated servers list available under Servers menu. Previously there were columns for country, server name, IP addresses list, current state, WMSPanel software version and CPU+RAM statistics.

Now we also have a snapshot of connections count and bandwidth for each server. These numbers, as well as CPU and RAM metrics, are updated each 30 seconds so you can see each server performance snapshot in real-time mode.

The snapshot is available for both Nimble Streamer and Wowza Streaming Engine.

Take a look at the following screenshot.

Real-life example of servers list with Nimble Streamer edges and Wowza origin.
You can see:

  • Nimble Streamer edges processing several dozens of viewers with 1% of its CPU capacity.
  • Wowza origin, processing requests from edge servers as well as from end users.

So you may consider changing the configuration of your streaming infrastructure, like re-routing more viewers on Nimble edges.

If you think about any other useful info which might be useful in this server list, feel free to contact us and describe your vision.
