Amazon Kinesis Video Stream Integration

A fully managed video ingestion and storage service that helps you securely stream video and time encoded data from millions of connected devices to AWS. With Site24x7's integration you can now collect, monitor and visualize usage and performance across a variety of metrics to understand the behavior of your video streaming application.

Setup and configuration

  • If you haven't done it already, enable access to your AWS resource by creating Site24x7 as an IAM user or by creating a cross-account IAM role between your account and Site24x7's AWS account. Learn more.
  • Next, in the Integrate AWS Account page, please make sure the Kinesis Video Stream checkbox is selected in the Services to be discovered field. Learn more.

Policies and permissions

Please make sure the following read level actions are present in the IAM policy assigned to the Site24x7 entity. Learn more.

  • kinesisvideo:Get*: Returns the endpoint for a specified stream and media data from persisted storage
  • kinesisvideo:List* : Fetches the tags associated with Kinesis video stream.
  • kinesisvideo:Describe*: Returns the most current information about the specified stream

Polling frequency

Site24x7 queries the CloudWatch API as per the poll frequency set (1 minute to a day), to collect performance metrics. Learn more.

To view metrics

  • Log in to the Site24x7 console, click on AWS > Monitored AWS account and select Kinesis Video Streams from the drop down
  • From the list of monitored video streams, choose the stream for which you want to access metrics for.
  • The various graphs applicable for your video stream are displayed in the Stream Details tab.

Supported metrics

The following performance metrics is collected per video stream
