IOS HTTP Streaming through LTM
I'm trying to figure out how our LTM can be configured to optimally serve live IOS streams.
We have a server that is serving live HTTP streams for IOS devices. As I understand it, requests consist of a playlist index file (.m3u8) and then a bunch of segment files (.ts) that are downloaded thereafter. The segments are generally 10 sec each.
The HTTP Streaming Architecture is outlined on Apple's developer site .
Ideally, we'd like to configure the LTM to cache these short-lived files so that if multiple users are watching the same stream, they aren't all retrieving them from the server.
Anyone have an idea on how to best configure a profile to achieve this (we're on v10 running LTM 3900)?
Thanks so much for your time!
