Media Flow Manager Web-Based Interface : Service Director : Configure Service Director

Configure Service Director
Use the Service Director > Configure page to set up Service Director, see Figure 74. You need the name and location of any Preset XML Response files you have created (in the format given above), or, to enter information directly, the host/domain names (URL Host) for Media Flow Controllers to which geographically-near incoming requests should be directed. See service-director for CLI details.
New Preset XML Response
Enter a name and URL for any XML Director files that you have created.
Reference Name—A name for the XML response file.
Preset XML’s URL—The location of the XML response file
Click Add to complete the XML response configuration and Save at the top of the page to make changes persistent across reboots.

New URL Host
Define hostnames in incoming queries to match to locations specified in XML responses. See Figure 75, below, for graphic.
Matching URL Host—The hostname of the incoming query. For example, if a query issued by a player is http://www.geosvc.example.com/svc/geo/uk-xml-map.xml, the query-url-host is geosvc.example.com.
Click Add to complete the host configuration and Save at the top of the page to make changes persistent across reboots.

Matching URL Host—Pick a configured host from the drop-down list.
Hash Verify’s Shared Secret—Enter the shared secret needed for authentication.
Allowed Time Deviation— Allowed deviation of current time from the request timestamp. Default value is 10 seconds.
