Media Flow Controller Web-Based Interface : EZconfig Tab

EZconfig Tab
Allows you to easily configure first-day Media Flow Controller setup.
System Hostname
Set the system hostname. See Figure 12 for graphic
Host Name (FQDN)—Enter a FQDN hostname for the system.
DNS IP—Enter an IP address for your domain name system (DNS) server.
Figure 12 EZconfig Page Detail (System Hostname)
Network Parameters
Set global network connection options; see Figure 13 for graphic.
Max-Bandwidth per Session(kbps)—Limit the allowed bandwidth for any one session. The actual session bandwidth is between the configured Assured Flow Rate and this value. Even if there is available bandwidth in the link, Media Flow Controller does not allocate more than this value for a session. When there is a full download, Media Flow Controller tries to allocate this value to the session. Default is 0 (unbounded) with the Media Flow Controller license, 200 kbps without it. Important! You must have the Media Flow Controller license installed to change the default.
Network Max Connections—Limit the allowed number of concurrent sessions in Media Flow Controller. Default is 5000; maximum allowed is 40,000. Important! You must have the Media Flow Controller license installed to change the default (10 without the license).
Assured Flow Rate (kbps)—Set the assured flow rate (AFR) for any connection. AFR is the minimum rate at which a connection is allowed to exist in the system. Connections usually get a bandwidth between this and the Max-Bandwidth per Session setting. Default is 0 (zero), means means AFR is disabled so Media Flow Controller delivers at a best-effort but does not assure a particular bit rate per video.

Virtual Player
Create a virtual player for the namespace. See Figure 14 for graphic.
Virtual Player Name—Create a virtual player with a name.
Virtual Player Type—Choose a type. More configuration options are available for virtual player under the Service Config tab Service Config > Virtual Player page.
Figure 14 EZconfig Page Detail (Virtual Player)
Add Namespace
Create a namespace; See Figure 15 for graphic. More configuration options are available for namespaces under the Service Config tab Service Config > NameSpace page.
Namespace—Give the namespace a relevant name.
URI-Prefix (required)—The uri-prefix refines what requests Media Flow Controller accepts; see “uri-prefix” on page 31 for usage details.
Domain—Specify a domain or use * (asterisk) to indicate any domain.
HTTP Origin— Use HTTP for origin fetch of content not in cache; specify the Hostname/IP Address of the origin server.
NFS Origin—Use NFS for origin fetch of content not in cache; specify the Hostname/IP Address of the origin server.
Virtual Player—The namespace uses this virtual player instead of the default settings of Network Parameters.

Enable Interfaces
Specify IP addresses and netmasks for detected ethernet interfaces; also, enable or disable interfaces. See Figure 16 for graphic.

Service Restart
Several services require restart after making changes.
Tip! When any changes are made to delivery protocols or network settings, you must restart the mod-delivery service; use mod-ftp for changes made to FTP settings, and mod-log for changes to logging settings. The mod-oom service (offline origin fetch manager) is provided for debugging purposes only. Select a service from the drop-down menu and click Restart. See Figure 17 for graphic.
