I need to stream live video from several web cameras (over RTMP) through Wowza Streaming Engine.
I have two servers running Wowza Streaming Engine, and I’m not sure what is the correct way to setup my environment so that it will be highly available.
My questions are (and I hope I’m in the right direction):
How do I set up a cluster of the two servers?
Can/should both servers share a configuration (of authentication information for example)?
Should I setup a load balancer in front of the two server?
Where should I point the stream from a web cam at, a specific server or the load balancer? What happens if one server fails in the middle of a live stream, will the video stream still be available?
Where should I point the client applications at, a specific server or the load balancer? What happens if one server fails in the middle of a live stream, will the clients still be able to consume it?
6.Should I set up an origin(s) and edge(s) in order for the setting to work? a bit confused here…
A lot of questions, hoping to get answers
