    Default Wowza Streaming Engine - restarted daily?


    At the beginning of each daily error log created by Wowza I've found a message like this:
    #Version: 1.0
    #Start-Date: 2015-02-20 00:00:00 EST
    #Software: Wowza Streaming Engine 4.0.4 build11775
    #Date: 2015-02-20
    Does this mean that Wowza service was restarted at 00:00 or is this added to the log only because the log was created at that time?

    Thank you,

    Each day your server is running it is capturing log files. In your [install-dir]/logs directory, you will see an appended log file named wowzastreamingengine_access.log and the daily access logs that look like this: wowzastreamingengine_access.log.2015-02-20. So based on your example, you should notice a new file created each day with a start time of 00:00:00. This is by design. The same goes for the error log files as well. If you restart the server, it is entered into the log file for that day.

    So this entry from the log doesn't mean that the service was restarted at that time, but only that the error log was created at the specified time.
