We are working on a pretty standard setup using wowza where we stitch mp4 files to get wowza scheduled stream and then transcode it to ABR streams which is then used to create custom HLS chunks, which is finally delivered using CDN.
The issue is we are having is that the wowza servers are experiencing high CPU usage. We restart the servers when they exceed certain threshold because it directly affects the stream playback. Restart brings the CPU usage to normal, but then the process repeats over a course of few days. We are trying to get to the bottom of the issue. We have tried analyzing thread dumps when the CPU usage was high, but that didn’t lead us anywhere. We were wondering if there is any method/tool you guys use/suggest on profiling the cpu/performance of the wowza server process? Please let me know if you need any more details
Thanks in advance
