Thread: DVR storage on AWS

  1. #1

    Default DVR storage on AWS

    Hi there .... I'm doing some testing on Wowza EC2, using DVR feature
    I've set up a small AMI for testing purposes. Supposedly, I have 160GB of local storage in that AMI.
    My DVR application setup is quite default (storing content to dvrstorage)
    Suddenly, my DVR stopped recording the content. When I checked the AMI, I see that one storage partition (where DVR seems to be storing) got to 100% of its capacity, while another much bigger partition is not being used at all.
    I'm guessing DVR couldn't keep recording due to this. So question is, how is the set up for using the other partition for DVR recording. I'm not much familiar with Wowza on Linux as I've always used it on Windows

    Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
    /dev/xvda1 10321208 9255736 541184 99% /
    tmpfs 859048 0 859048 0% /dev/shm
    /dev/xvda2 153899044 231908 145849512 1% /media/ephemeral0

    You can change this in the /conf/[app-name]/Application.xml.

    <!-- Storage Directory is top level location where dvr is stored.  e.g. c:/temp/dvr -->
    You can modify files locally and move with FTP, or you can use Putty to connect and vi to edit.

    I know how to modify parameters in the application file. My queation was more specific to Amazon EC2 Wowza image, where it looks like Wowza is not installed in a big partition.
    How the configuration would be to use the biggest partition of the AMI

    I think you're right, this should use the large partition. I know the content folder was adjusted recently to do so. What AMI are you using exactly? One of these?:

    I am using this one

    ami-b073acad S America (Sao Paulo) sa-east-1 32-bit m1.small, c1.medium

    Knowing now content folder has been fixed for that, I van set DVR to record in a subfolder of content one

    for the record, I configured the server to record DVR content in the Content folder, and now I see I'm using the largest partition ...
