[Webinar Recording] Creating a Kickass WebRTC Monitor

A few weeks ago, we’ve hosted a webinar on creating an active monitoring system for your WebRTC application. Obviously, we’ve used testRTC for that. We went through the following topics: Why is WebRTC monitoring different than VoIP or Web monitoring? (that’s because it is a bit of both) What do we mean when we say […]

WebRTC Application Monitoring: Do you Wipe or Wash?

UPDATE: Recording of this webinar can be found here. If you are running an application then you are most probably monitoring it already. You’ve got New Relic, Datadog or some other cloud service or on premise monitoring setup handling your APM (Application Performance Management). What does that mean exactly with WebRTC? If we do the […]

Advanced Testing: Manipulating getUserMedia and Available Devices

Philipp Hancke is not new here on our blog. He has assisted us when we wrote the series on webrtc-internals. He is also not squeamish about writing his own testing environment and sharing the love. This time, he wanted to share a piece of code that takes device availability test automation in WebRTC to a […]

We’ve Partnered Up With Frozen Mountain

Guess what? We’ve partnered with Frozen Mountain. If you are developing a WebRTC application that is self hosted service on your own (AWS, bare metal or whatever cloud or data center), then you’ve got your hands full with work. That work includes a lot in the domain of stress testing the service, trying to size […]

Automating Your WebRTC Product Testing (Recorded session)

I took part this week in Twilio’s Signal event in London. As with the previous Signal event I attended, this one was excellent (but that’s for some other post). Twilio were kind enough to invite me to talk at their event, which resulted in the recorded session below: In the first part of this session, […]

Automated WebRTC Testing using testRTC

Yesterday, we hosted a webinar on testRTC. This time, we were really focused on showing some live demos of our service. I wanted this one to be useful, so I sat down earlier this week, working on a general story outline with the idea of showing live how you can write a test script from […]

How Many Sessions Can a Kurento Server Hold?

Here’s a question we come across quite often at testRTC. You decided to self develop your own service. Manage your own media servers. And now that time comes to understand your ongoing costs as well as decide on the scale out scheme – at what point do you launch/spawn a new server to take up […]

How to Prepare Your WebRTC Application for a Surge in Traffic

OK, this is the moment you’ve been waiting for: there’s a huge surge in traffic on your WebRTC application. Success! You even had the prescience to place all of your web application’s assets on a CDN and whatever uptime monitoring service you use, be it New Relic, Datadog or a homegrown Nagios solution – says […]

Just Landed: Automated WebRTC Screen Sharing Testing in testRTC

Well… this week we had a bit of a rough start, but we’re here. We just updated our production version of testRTC with some really cool capabilities. The time was selected to fit with the vacation schedule of everyone in this hectic summer and also because of some nagging Node.js security patch. As always, our […]

How do WebRTC Media Servers Behave on Packet Loss?

Differently from each other. Whenever I see people comparing WebRTC media servers, they tend to focus on scale: – How many sessions can you cram in parallel? – How many streams can you serve from a single machine? – How much bitrate can you pump out? All of these are very important questions – they […]
