Collecting statistics causing SteamCast service to crash

Post by RayScites » Fri Jun 07, 2019 10:27 am

I've been tasked with creating a statistics collection service that aggregates data from SteamCast and Wowza into a database for reporting. I have found that the /admin/status.json page has all of the data I would ever need.

The problem I am running into is in the collection interval. If I collect data from that page too often, the SteamCast service becomes unstable and crashes. I'm using the .net core httpClient to send GET requests for the json data. Right now, I can collect once every 30 seconds with too much of a problem, but I would like to update more often than that. The SteamCast service is running on a Windows 2012 server with less than 10 sources and 300-400 streams.

Any ideas or suggestions are greatly appreciated!

Thanks,

Ray

Which version of Steamcast are you using? It should be completely stable.
