Dispersa monitoring multiple edit

Dispersa streams availability monitoring is widely used by our customers around the globe. Many of them monitor dozens and even hundreds of streams. So in addition to having monitoring alerts API to automate notifications, people need a way to make bulk edit of their streams as least from web UI.

That's why we introduce multiple edit for Dispersa monitoring entries. It allows setting the streams and their monitoring behavior.

Go to Monitoring top menu to see list of your streams.

Streams monitoring console.

Here you can see Multiple edit button. Clicking on it you see a dialog with a formatted text representing current settings.




Here's an example of an entry:

  {
    "url": "http://146.185.139.54/local/raw/nimble.mp4/playlist.m3u8",
    "alias": "Nimble Promo Video 1",
    "alert": true,
    "paused": false,
    "checkpoints": [
      "AMS",
      "SFO",
      "NYC",
      "SGP",
      "FRA"
    ]

Each entry has the following structure:

  • url is the URL of the stream to monitor;
  • alias is the name which you see in streams list;
  • alert is a flag defining whether Dispersa must notify account admin or not;
  • paused is a flag defining if this stream is actively checked or if it's not monitored at the moment;
  • checkpoints is the list of checkpoint where the stream is checked. It uses checkpoint 3-character aliases or server ID in case of private checkpoint.


So, setting up these options you can control all stream in your list at once.

Let us know if you think of any other improvements your business might need from Dispersa.
