I currently use a Wowza Server that is provided and supported by a third party, the issue below does not exist on our current production server using the same configuration.
I’m setting up Wowza on a hosted server to self-manage and have an issue with the higher quality live stream pausing about every 10-11 sec, this same stream configuration works without issue for VOD.
Server has 32 cores, 64GB Memory, +10 Gigabit NIC.
