Activation Ratio gives you full control over CDN Mesh Delivery deployment. For those who prefer an incremental ramp-up while rolling out the technology, this feature enables you to allocate an exact percentage of your audience to benefit from Streamroot peer-to-peer on a per-device basis. Best yet, your teams can do this directly from your Streamroot dashboard in your account section. Get to cruising speed more quickly and hassle-free, while having full control of your audiences and testing environment.
By starting with a small activation ratio, you will be able to test how our technology works on a small percentage of end-users. Then, you can increase it with time after checking the results. When you are confident with the power of our technology you can activate it on 100% of your traffic.
How it works
- Whenever you change the activation ratio our servers need 5 mins to apply those settings.
- Disabled viewers still run our libraries but don't connect to our tracker. Peer connections for those viewers will not be initiated and their videos will be loaded from CDNs only.
- Disabled viewers do not send data to the dashboard.
