This solution automatically provisions the services necessary to visualize media services, their relationships, and the real-time status of linear video services. This solution features a browser application that includes both a tile view and a diagram view to help you identify the root cause of a problem when multiple media services are sending messages to Amazon CloudWatch.
Aggregate resources into a single channel tile that represents a single streaming video channel. Each tile displays the aggregated media service configuration information for all resources included in the tile.
Visualize the relationships between your media services and the status of your resources and pipelines as workflow diagrams. You can also customize the solution to include custom node types or on-premises equipment.
You can customize or extend this solution for your specific needs. For example, add custom node types with the browser application, cache them into a database through a cloud-side task, and extend connection discovery and visualization overlay functionality to on-premises equipment.
This solution features a web application to help you visualize relationships between your AWS media services and provide the real-time status of linear video services. The AWS CloudFormation template deploys the following serverless infrastructure and web content in the AWS Cloud.
An Amazon CloudFront distribution to serve the Media Services Application Mapper on AWS web application.
An Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) bucket as an origin to serve the solution’s web application.
AWS Lambda functions to handle client REST API requests from API Gateway, periodically scan for media services resources, and receive notifications of changes in a resource’s status. Two Lambda functions are custom resources for the browser application stack and one for the Amazon DynamoDB tables stack that are used during installation, update, and deletion.
DynamoDB tables to store the solution’s backend and front-end configuration and state.
CloudWatch events to invoke the regional Lambda functions when there are operational changes in the sources of inventory or changes in state to subscribed CloudWatch alarms.
Lambda functions to monitor source services for CloudWatch events in additional AWS Regions.
Amazon CloudWatch is a monitoring service for AWS cloud resources and the applications you run on AWS. In this course you will learn about the capabilities and key terms of the service.
