Starting today, AWS Elemental MediaConnect offers additional output metrics for SRT and MediaLive outputs to improve video stream monitoring. The new metrics are total packets sent, Forward Error Correction (FEC) packets, Automatic Repeat Requests (ARQ), number of resent packets, number of packets not recovered, round trip time, and bitrate for each output from a MediaConnect flow.

The new metrics are used to monitor each output on the flow and provide deeper visibility into performance of downstream workloads.

To learn more about output metrics, visit the AWS Elemental MediaConnect documentation page.
