Streaming Usage and Viewer Statistics

 

 

Track Usage Statistics, Viewer Data, and Activity  

You can see an accurate number of viewers by country, including information on where and how long viewers watched Adobe HDS and Apple HLS adaptive bitrate renditions of your streams. In addition, view details of stream processing time, network usage, egress, and peak recording storage for the account, for any time period.

The Wowza Streaming Cloud™ service lets you track your usage and see charges as they accrue. The Wowza Streaming Cloud manager provides multiple ways to stay on top of how much stream processing (transcoding) time and network usage (bandwidth) you’ve accrued, as well as ways to see how much content left Wowza Streaming Cloud for a stream target (egress). You can see the following:  

  • A snapshot of network usage, stream processing time, 24x7 and passthrough egress, and peak recording storage accrued for the account in the current billing period
  • A detailed breakdown of stream processing time, network usage, and egress accrued for any individual stream or transcoder, in any time period
  • Details of stream processing time, network usage, egress, and peak recording storage for the account, for any time period
  • Information on viewer locations and duration for Adobe HDS and Apple HLS versions of your streams 

Network Usage shows the total amount of content that Wowza Streaming Cloud received and delivered to all players, direct-playback URLs, and targets for all streams on your account in the current billing period.  

Transcoded Stream Processing Time shows the total number of processing hours used by all adaptive bitrate live streams and custom transcoders on your account in the current billing period. 

Passthrough Stream Processing Time shows the total number of processing hours used by all passthrough transcoders on your account in the current billing period. 

24x7 and Passthrough Egress shows how much content all 24x7 live streams and 24x7 and passthrough transcoders on your account sent to stream targets in the current billing period.
