Health Check Tools

There are a number of ways to monitor and check the health of your Haivision solution. You'll find built-in commands and free third-party software can be very useful in gauging speed, bandwidths, and network transit delays.

Haivision highly recommends running a Trace Route to determine the quality and latency of your connection. Some Internet Service Providers lease lines and receive revenue to piggyback onto other networks, which can cause latency and additional “hops” for your signal to reach the CDN entry point.
