  3. 3. A Custom Monitoring Tool for Video Storage and Delivery Infrastructure • Neev created a tool to effectively monitor infrastructure usage of video files generated from IP cameras 24x7 and in real-time which enabled the client to respond quickly to any non-availability related issues.
  4. 4. The Client • The client is a UK-based provider of innovative home and business security solutions. • They design, manufacture and market a range of wireless internet video cameras. • The video and audio feeds can be accessed live through computers, smartphones or tablets.
  5. 5. Business Need • The client had a security solution comprising a set of IP cameras that records videos on detection of motion. • The captured videos were hosted on the cloud and streamed on-demand – live or recorded. • It was facing issues with high resource (App server) usage, especially in the weekends. • There was no way of determining the reason behind the spurt in usage. • The client required a tool that could monitor IP cameras 24/7 and provide accurate, real-time camera usage statistics for effective infrastructure management.
  6. 6. Neev Solution • Neev developed a solution to figure out the real-time status of IP cameras and correlate it with a high server usage. • This was done with a custom monitoring dashboard that fetched real-time data from a database (SimpleDB) that stores camera statistics and graphically represents the data. • Neev developed plugins that displayed how many cameras are online and how many of them are recording at the present time.
  7. 7. Top Features • The client could ensure continuous availability of resources for its customers, especially on weekends with the help of our 24/7 monitoring tool. • The tool consisted of a custom dashboard with real-time camera usage data and graphical representation of the data. • It has now enabled the client to build infrastructure Auto-scaling capability on top of the existing infrastructure. • Neev also provided server and cloud support by manually scaling the infrastructure and ensuring zero failures.
  8. 8. Technology Footprint • Amazon SimpleDB (helps determine camera status), RDS, EC2 • PHP • Munin • Monit • Python Boto for Stats Collection
  9. 9. Top Challenges • To understand the working of an existing system and identifying the real issue. • To determine a solution to measure the number of cameras that are online, the number of cameras that are recording video feeds and the number of cameras that are streaming live.
