Viewing Conferencing Nodes
You can view details of all of your current Conferencing Nodes, including an interactive Conferencing Node status chart showing the load history for that node. You can also review a list of historic events (such as starting or stopping cloud bursting nodes) that have occurred on your Conferencing Nodes.
To see a list of all Conferencing Nodes, go to .
Each Conferencing Node has the following information available:
|Name||The name of the Conferencing Node. Click on the name to view detailed status information.|
|Role||Indicates the node's role — either a Transcoding Conferencing Node or a Proxying Edge Node.|
|IPv4 Address||The primary IP address of the Conferencing Node.|
||The optional secondary interface IPv4 address of the Conferencing Node.|
|Static NAT address
||The optional static NAT address of the Conferencing Node.|
|System location||The physical location of the Conferencing Node.|
Deployment succeeded indicates that the Conferencing Node has been automatically deployed.
Deployment failed indicates that an automatic deployment has not been successful.
Manual indicates that the Manual option was selected when the Conferencing Node was deployed (for more information see Deployment environments. Even if the manual deployment was successful, this field will still say Manual; however you can see from the Last contacted and Last updated fields whether the Conferencing Node is now up and running and receiving configuration updates.
Other statuses indicate that an automatic deployment is currently in progress.
|Maintenance mode||Indicates whether the node is currently in maintenance mode.|
|Version||The version number of the Pexip Infinity software that is currently installed on this Conferencing Node.|
The date and time that the Conferencing Node last contacted the Management Node. In typical deployments, configuration replication is performed approximately once per minute. However, in very large deployments (more than 60 Conferencing Nodes), configuration replication intervals are extended, and it may take longer for configuration changes to be applied to all Conferencing Nodes (the administrator log shows when each node has been updated).
The last time that the Conferencing Node's configuration was updated.
For a Transcoding Conferencing Node, the initial table shows an estimate of the total number of simultaneous high-definition (HD) 720p video calls this node can handle.
After you have selected an individual transcoding node to view, you can also review the estimated SD, HD, Full HD and audio call capacity.
For a Proxying Edge Node, the initial table shows an estimate of the total number of proxied video calls this node can handle. After you have selected an individual proxying node to view, you can also review the estimated proxying capacity for audio calls.
An estimate of how much of its total capacity the Conferencing Node is currently using.
Note that when a Conferencing Node is in maintenance mode, it reports a media load of 100%. This is to indicate that there is no current capacity available.
