Red5 Documentation


Red5CloudWatch is a subcomponent within Red5 Pro Stream Manager which acts as a communication bridge between an active Red5 Pro node and the stream manager.

Technically it is a Java servlet which formats and relays incoming HTTP/HTTPS communication from a Red5 Pro Node to the Stream Manager Red5CloudWatchClient.

The Red5CloudWatch relays important notifications such as:

  • Cluster Report: NodeGroup statistics about load and streams
  • Stream publish: Stream publish start notification from the origin
  • Stream unpublish: Stream unpublish notification from the origin
  • Node role assignment: Request by a newly initialized node to acquire its role in the group & operational configuration information.
