    Default AES Cpu Instruction


    I'm using Wowza as origin server to serve HLS chunks encrypted using AES-128 method.

    How can i know if my serve use the aes instruction from my CPU ( Wowza consume a lot of CPU ressource when serving 500 concurrent HLS streams.

    Here is my CPU details :

    # cat /proc/cpuinfo

    I'm not sure what you are asking about AES. It works in the iOS devices Wowza supports.

    Yes, 500 concurrent HLS streams does use some server resources. Make sure the server is properly tuned

    And take a look at JConsole for monitoring. Wowza/Java reserve memory in java heap setting, so you need to look at memory use in Wowza to see what is really being used:
