Welcome to the new, unified Livepeer documentation! 👋
Monitor Metrics

Monitor Metrics

This guide provides instructions on configuring metrics monitoring for orchestrators that have been activated on the Livepeer network.

  • Enable Metrics Monitoring
  • Monitor with visualizations
    • Prometheus
    • Grafana
  • Monitor with Docker

You can refer to Prometheus Metrics to check what metrics are exposed.

Enabling Metrics Monitoring

You can enable metrics monitoring with livepeer.exe adding the -monitor flag and additional parameters:

  • -monitor: enables metric monitoring
  • -metricsPerStream: groups performance metrics per stream
  • -metricsClientIP: exposes client's IP in metrics

For Example:

Enable metrics monitoring with a combined orchestrator and transcoder:

livepeer \
    -orchestrator \
    -transcoder \

For the purpose of this example, other flags have been omitted.

Monitoring With Prometheus and Grafana

Follow the instructions in this monitoring guide (opens in a new tab) to learn how metrics recorded by livepeer can be:

Monitoring with Docker

You can use this Docker container (opens in a new tab) to easily start monitoring your orchestrator or transcoder. It bundles Prometheus, Grafana, and a few starter Grafana dashboard templates.
