Streams geo real-time report


Recently we've introduced Daily geo stats for Wowza which allows seeing geo-location report including country and cities info. We also have overall real-time geo-location info for each of the server in customer's pool.

So to complete the picture, we made real-time geo information about each stream in customer's bucket.

Now you can just go to "Streams report", choose a stream you want and see top 20 countries information displayed as a set of flags with a number of connections as a tool tip.

Check this screenshot to see it in action:
