Working with SRT statistics

On this page, you will find documentation on working with live stream statistics using the SRT protocol.

Callaba SRT Statistics provides a wide range of real-time data about the network node. This data can be used to monitor the state of the live stream and track any erroneous behavior.

This module in Callaba is implemented using Data Streaming messages, a real-time data processing approach. It differs from traditional batch processing, where data is collected, stored, and processed in batches. In streaming processing, data is continuously processed as it arrives.

To obtain statistical data about your SRT streams, you can establish a connection via WebSocket:

Types of data stream messages

There are two types of messages you can subscribe to in order to receive up-to-date statistics.

    Use this message to get statistical data about your live streams. This is especially useful when you need to monitor anomalies such as bitrate or round-trip delay during the broadcast.
    See code example

    Use this message to get active working streams as well as a timeline of stream connection or disconnection events. This is especially useful for monitoring the current state of the pipeline and tracking reconnection anomalies.
    See code example
