You can use the system resource management of the Media Server to proportionately assign operation-critical system resources to individual media applications of the Media Server – e. g. to the conference portal user access. In this way it is possible to split up the operation-critical system resources according to their use and to guarantee each media application a specific number of operation-critical system resources.
The Media Server internally manages different operation-critical system resources. Among these you find in particular the following:
The Media Server uses RTP channels for in and outbound voice communication Each RTP channel resource specifies a bidirectional transmission channel.
Conference mixing unit
The Media Server uses a conference mixing unit to interconnect conference participants. For each conference a conference mixing unit is required in the Media Server.
The Media Server usually manages for each media application several instances. For the speech respectively conference portal this means:
one voice portal instance for each user logged in to the voice portal
one conference portal instance for each user just logging on to the conference portal
one conference portal instance for each active conference room
To proportionately assign a system resource to an individual media application, you first need to determine how many resources of the relevant type are altogether available. Since the Media Server operates software-based, this number of resources is defaulted by the performance of the computer system used.
After the maximum number of a resource type has been determined, the relevant resources can be divided user-individually.
The listed system resources are assigned the following resource type names in the Media Server system resource management:
RTP channel – resource type RTPChannelParent topic: Media Services
Configuration Concept of the Media Server
Conference mixing unit – resource type ConfMixingUnit
Application instance – resource type ApplicationInstance
How to Specify the Total Number for System Resources
Before you can assign resources of a specific type to a media application, you need to determine how many resources of the relevant type the Media Server has in total.
