Centralized Management - AWS Elemental Conductor Live 3

This is version 3.17 of the AWS Elemental Conductor Live 3 documentation. This is the latest version. For prior versions, see the Previous Versions section of AWS Elemental Conductor Live 3 Documentation.

Centralized Management

AWS Elemental Conductor Live 3 lets you control both AWS Elemental Live nodes and AWS Elemental Statmux nodes.

With AWS Elemental Conductor Live 3, you do not work on each individual AWS Elemental Live or AWS Elemental Statmux node. Instead, you work on all nodes from one centralized web interface on the Conductor.

AWS Elemental Conductor Live 3 and Live Nodes

Centralization via AWS Elemental Conductor Live 3 has several advantages for encoding work:

  • You create and run events (referred to as “channels”) from AWS Elemental Conductor Live 3, specifying which node the channel is to run on. It is possible to move channels from one node to another.

  • You create profiles (which hold most of the data for channels) in AWS Elemental Conductor Live 3. Any channel on any node can use the same profile. With AWS Elemental Live as standalone, there is no profile sharing across nodes.

  • You can view the activity on all nodes in a cluster. The AWS Elemental Live interface lets you view activity only for the individual standalone node.

  • You can start and stop channels on any node in the cluster. You can add or delete a channel on any node.

  • You can perform some changes on several channels at once, even if those channels are not on the same node. For example, if several channels (distributed across several nodes) all use the same profile, you can change all those channels so that they use a new profile (that is a revised version of the original profile).

AWS Elemental Conductor Live 3 and AWS Elemental Statmux Nodes

Centralization via the AWS Elemental Conductor Live 3 also has several advantages for creation of an MPTS:

  • You can create an MPTS and add channels to that MPTS from AWS Elemental Conductor Live 3.

  • You can start and stop an MPTS.

  • You can add or remove a channel on any AWS Elemental Statmux node.

  • You can change properties of an MPTS in order to change the behavior of the MPTS.

  • You can view the activity on all AWS Elemental Statmux nodes in a cluster
