Monitoring IP/TV Servers

Is there a way to see who many people are actually watching a specific program? or how many people in total are viewing all streams.

Re: Monitoring IP/TV Servers

Cisco offers a software package called StreamWatch that tracks IPTV viewer usage for individual programs. License cost is $1k

What kind of reports does it provide, my CIO requires to know who, and how many etc..

Thanks for the reply

Re: Monitoring IP/TV Servers

On a per program basis, StreamWatch will log usage data by viewer name (or IP address), tune-in time, tune-off time, and basic QoS data for the program per viewer. Many enterprises use this info for "nielsen"-like data to measure viewership or to bill for bandwidth consumption or per program viewership.

That was what my question was about. Is there any SNMP MIB access to the IP/TV Servers so we don't have to use StreamWatch?

There is no SNMP MIB. Only StreamWatch

StreamWatch is for realtime broadcast stream(s)....it also adds overhead from each viewer (who is also a transmitter using multicast back to the Streamwatch device)

There is a ' journaling ' function on the IPTV Content Server for each ' video-on-demand ' . The data is stored in a runtime version of Mircossoft Access in a database called c:\JavaWebServer\iptvcm\database\odjournal.mdb.

so to get 'all' the Neilsen reports...both have to be used...
