A thorough and rigorous program of operational procedures and processes can reduce the chance of introducing new faults to the streaming media system as well as reducing the impact any resulting failures will have. Some valuable operational processes that you can perform on a regular basis include:

  • Backing up content.

  • Removing unused playlists, publishing points, and content from the system.

  • Regularly reviewing stream logs for abnormalities.

  • Monitoring streaming operation using the Monitor tab and investigating error conditions.

  • Establishing a regular schedule for hardware maintenance.

  • Reviewing and rehearsing recovery plans.
