This guide provides instructions on configuring metrics monitoring for orchestrators that have been activated on the Livepeer network.
- Enable Metrics Monitoring
- Monitor with visualizations
- 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
Enable metrics monitoring with a combined orchestrator and transcoder:
livepeer \ -orchestrator \ -transcoder \ -monitor
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:
- Exported to Prometheus (opens in a new tab), and
- Visualized in Grafana (opens in a new tab)
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.
