HLS - Hard Disk Usage

Ben 2017-02-20 14:01:17 UTC in Nimble Streamer

Hello All. We currently output VLC using http so all traffic is RAM based. We want to move to Nimble and use HLS because channel change time is quicker and theres more tools / reporting.

As HLS segments the chunks, im assuming these are stored on the hard drive? So my question is, if you have 800 people watching TV with 40 channels using HLS thats a lot of work for hard disks so eventually this would hit a problem? Or are the HLS chunks stored in RAM?

Thankyou in advance

Nimble has hybrid cache: both RAM and ROM cache supported.
By default Nimble use RAM cache for live streams. When exhausted ROM is used. You can setup RAM/ROM cache size following
If you don't want to use ROM for cache just set appropriate RAM size for cache and live segments will never use ROM
