Xibo provides useful metrics for Users, who have the relevant permissions, to view within the CMS. These are designed to provide a centralised area for analysis into Display performance and usage and are available from the Reporting section on the menu.
The CMS records the bandwidth used by each Display when connecting to XMDS for content and when reporting back Display information.
The default view for the bandwidth chart is a total per Display.
Filter to one Display to see each call that the Player makes to XMDS in isolation.
The CMS records all Displays on/offline events to provide further information regarding a Displays availability.
Proof of Play
