I am relaying multiple stream using origin-edge combination. Nowdays At a particular time of day we are facing some degrade in our injecting stream quality which is causing Wowza to log with Packet drop message.
At that moment.. the live stream doesn't play well (which is acceptable as because the source stream itself is poor).I monitored the CPU usage.. at the stream degrade time the CPU goes very high at 100%
But, when the stream goes good.. Wowza does not recovers to its earlier state and it continuously logs packet drop message.
But if I restart the wowza everything goes fine.
I have checked on this behavior multiple time. I always have to restart wowza to bring it back to earlier state, even after the stream comes back in good condition.
Is restarting wowza the only solution. Why wowza does not recover itself once the stream becomes good
