Microsoft today announced that they are open-sourcing Azure Media Services (AMS) Live Monitoring Dashboard on GitHub. The Live Monitoring Dashboard is a .NET C# app that enables Azure Media Services customers to view the health of their channel and origin deployments. It supplies data on the incoming data rate for video stream ingestion, dropped data in storage archive, encoding data rate, and origin HTTP error statuses and latencies.
The channel detailed view provides incoming bitrate, discontinuity count, overlap count, and bitrate ratio data for a given channel. In this view, these fields represent the following:
- Bitrate: the expected bitrate for a given track and incoming bitrate is the bitrate that the channel receives
- Discontinuity count: the count of instances where a fragment was missing in the stream
- Overlap count: the count of instances where the channel receives fragments with the same or overlapping stream timestamp
- Bitrate ratio: the ratio of incoming bitrate to expected bitrate
