Is There anyway to Monitor No. of Live HTTP HDS/HLS Streams? FMS 4.5.1

May 18, 2012 1:14 AM

Tags: #monitor #live #http #streams #hds-live

We are making an application that is basically serving students so as expected most of the clients who access are the students who are accessing behind the university firewalls. We have some issues with the RTMPT (Tunnel RTMP over Port 80) at many places. May be there are some issues with the respective firewalls of those places.

 

Therefore out management has decided to switch to Live HTTP as that is reported to be working fine at all these places which has some issues with RTMPT

 

However one of the issues that we are facing is that that we unable to monitor number of LIVE streams or Number of Clients (Students) who are connected to our stream?

 

Is there any workaround to measure how many users are online without the involvement of RTMP/RTMPT protocols?

    Hi ,

     

    Right now there is no way from FMS end to let you know no of live http HDS/ HLS Streams. The Admin API which we provide work only for RTMP flavors.

     

    You can search over net if there is some tool which does intelligent parsing of Apache logs and provides some useful data. Hopefully you find something.

     

    This is something which has been requsted by many users and sooner rather than latter we can provide something to user but cannot promise anything right now.

     

    Hope this helps.

    Hello,

    Right now there is no way from FMS end to let you know no of live http HDS/ HLS Streams. The Admin API which we provide work only for RTMP flavors.

    I am very sorry for not being constructive in this discussion - but, imho this really had to be part of the release of 4.5 (especially with HLS added to the mix).

    Also, adding this not only to Admin API but to the fms admin console app i see as a must. (and i am not the only one, pretty sure of that)
    Just to clarify, yes i do understand that apache is doing everything HLS related but the product is called FMS and it is marketed and sold as such...

    This is something which has been requsted by many users and sooner rather than latter we can provide something to user but cannot promise anything right now.

    That would be great, finally! (i can only wish that this will be a part of the admin console)

    Please do keep us posted.

     

    Again, sorry for not being very constructive here.

    Yes i understand that we sell it as whole solution but then you also need to understand that HTTP is different technlogy. If i have to argue on technical ground - there is no concept of connections when it comes to HTTP. But then i also agree we need to provide something which helps users to do some traffic analysis. And don't worry about you not being constructive - any feedback which is given in good intent is always constructive.

    @SE_0208

     

    Thank you sir for understanding.

     

    I too have no intention of argueing here, especially not on technical grounds and especially not with you .

     

    Obviously, there are a few functionalities badly needed in FMS, one of which is this one (some others i consider important i have listed here: http://forums.adobe.com/message/4315166#4315166), it will only make FMS better product if provided.
