What is the Hive Real-Time Dashboard?

The Hive Real-Time Dashboard provides a variety of useful statistics for network managers & others responsible for the broadcast:

The Hive Real-Time Dashboard includes the following graphs:

  • Viewers: The number of unique viewers watching the event over time

  • Savings Percentage: The amount and percentage of data transfer saved by using the Hive Client compared to a conventional setup. NOTE: Hive Insights for Skype customers will not see savings reported because their service is limited to statistics only.

  • Buffering per Viewer. The number and duration of buffering experienced by the viewer per 30-second snapshot. Note that viewers have an initial expected buffering when starting a video.

  • Viewers per Bitrate Summary: the amount of viewers streaming at each video bitrate.

  • Savings Summary: the amount and percentage of data transfer saved by using the Hive Client compared to a conventional streaming setup. NOTE: Hive Insights for Skype customers will not see savings reported because their service is limited to statistics only.

  • Buffering Summary: Summary of all buffering, calculated per 30-second snapshot.

  • Viewers per Bitrate over time: the distribution of unique Clients streaming at a given bitrate over time.

  • CDN requests over time: the amount of requests per second made against the CDN (Content Delivery Network) or video source to download the original video content.

  • P2P Traffic Type percentage: the distribution of Hive Clients’ P2P traffic types over time. Keeping the traffic local will reduce stress on the enterprise network. Subnet traffic is preferred, followed by Site, Site-to-Site and Relayed. NOTE: Relayed traffic is never used in Hive for Skype deployments. Also, Hive Insights for Skype customers will not see this graph populated because their service is limited to statistics only.
