THIS MODULE IS DEPRECATED
MCM Statistics Plugin
DescriptionThis plugin monitors the actions on streams, and logs them in MCM.
Requires Wowza 4.0.3
Requires MCM 1.
Configuration is done in the file 'conf/chaos/Application.xml' relative to the VHost path of the plugin (see Installation).
The file is based on 'examples/SimpleVideoStreaming/conf/vod/Application.xml' from the Wowza system directory. It must be updated with the following step:
Add the Statistics module
Configuration is read from the file 'conf/chaos/chaos-streaming-server-plugin.properties' relative to the VHost path of the plugin (see Installation)
The following keys are used:
Logging is done at VHost level. Edit the file 'conf/log4j.properties' relative to the VHost path of the plugin (see Installation) to set the desired log levels.
Assuming a Wowza server installed in $WOWZADIR configured with a toplevel directory for a VHost called $VHOSTDIR, the following is needed:
Add the distributed JAR files to $VHOSTDIR/applications/lib
Create the directory $VHOSTDIR/conf/chaos
Place the configuration file in $VHOSTDIR/conf/chaos/chaos-streaming-server-plugin.properties
Place the application file in $VHOSTDIR/conf/chaos/Application.xml
Create the directory $VHOSTDIR/applications/chaos
(To use an external VHost dir, follow the instructions from http://www.wowza.com/resources/WowzaStreamingEngine_UsersGuide.pdf section "Virtual Hosting")
In a browser, open the URL
(replace /usr/local/WowzaStreamingEngine with $WOWZADIR)
At server, type
For XXX use an object ID from MCM.
For YYY use a valid session ID from MCM.
At stream, type the filename of the object with ObjectID XXX
Assuming that file is available in the content directory of the VHost, the file should now start playing. Try pausing and seeking.
The events should now be recorded in the MCM statistics log.
TODO: Alternatively use mockup MCM implementation for testing.
