IWMSPublishingPointTotalCounters.AllCounters (C#)

The AllCounters property retrieves an array that contains all of the counters supported by the object.

Syntax

  object[,] = IWMSPublishingPointTotalCounters.AllCounters;

Property Value

An object array containing the counters.

Remarks

This property is read-only. The array is two-dimensional. The first element in each row contains the name of the counter property, and the second element in each row contains the value. The AllCounters property is used to speed up counter retrieval during remote administration, by making one call instead of multiple calls to retrieve multiple counter properties.

The properties returned by the array are shown in the following table.

Property Method
Advertisements Retrieves the cumulative number of advertisements that have been streamed from playlists since the last reset.
ConnectedPlayers Retrieves the total number of players connected to the publishing point since the last reset.
FileBytesRead Retrieves the total number of bytes read from the publishing point since the last reset.
LateReads Retrieves the total number of read operations that took over 400 milliseconds.
OutgoingDistributionBytesSent Retrieves the total number of bytes sent to distribution connections since the last reset.
OutgoingDistributionConnections Retrieves the total number of distribution connections established since the last reset.
PlayerBytesSent Retrieves the total number of bytes sent to players since the last reset.
StreamDenials Retrieves the total number of denied stream transmissions since the last reset.
StreamErrors Retrieves the total number of dropped-packet errors since the last reset.
StreamingPlayers Retrieves the total number of players that have streamed data from the publishing point since the last reset.
StreamingHTTPPlayers Retrieves the total number of players that have streamed data by using the HTTP protocol from the publishing point since the last reset.
StreamingRTSPPlayers Retrieves the total number of players that have streamed data by using the RTSP protocol from the publishing point since the last reset.
StreamingUDPPlayers Retrieves the total number of players that have streamed data by using the User Datagram Protocol (UDP) from the publishing point since the last reset.
StreamTerminations Retrieves the total number of stream transmissions that have been terminated since the last reset.
