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.

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.

Business Need

The Client has a security solution comprising a set of IP cameras that records videos on detection of motion. The captured videos are 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.

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 represent the data.

Neev developed plugins that displayed how many cameras are online and how many of them are recording at the present time.

Technology footprint

  • Amazon SimpleDB(helps determine camera status), RDS, EC2
  • PHP
  • Munin
