Javascript library to monitor Selective Forwarding Units (SFU)

@observertc/sfu-monitor-js is a JavaScript library to monitor your SFU and integrate with ObserveRTC.

Table of Contents:

Quick Start

Install the library by using NPM:

npm i @observertc/sfu-monitor-js

Once the library is installed, you need to integrate it. The first step is to set up a monitor in your application.

import * as ObserveRTC from '@observertc/sfu-monitor-js';

// Quick start to create a monitor and log the collected stats
const monitor = ObserveRTC.createSfuMonitor({
  collectingPeriodInMs: 2000,
  samplingPeriodInMs: 4000,
});

monitor.on('sample-created', ({ sfuSample }) => {
  console.log('The created sample', sfuSample);
});

A monitor does the following:

  1. Collect Stats
  2. Make sample based on the collected stats

Integrate Mediasoup

To integrate mediasoup:3^ you can use the built-in MediasoupCollector.

import * as mediasoup from 'mediasoup';

const sfuMonitor = createSfuMonitor({
  collectingPeriodInMs: 5000,
});

const mediasoupCollector = sfuMonitor.createMediasoupCollector({
  mediasoup,
});

With this configuration, the monitor automatically adds and removes mediasoup objects.

monitor.on('stats-collected', () => {
    const storage = monitor.storage
    console.log(`Mediasoup SFU has ${storage.getNumberOfInboundRtpPads()} incoming RTP stream`);
    console.log(`Mediasoup SFU has ${storage.getNumberOfOutboundRtpPads()} outgoing RTP stream`);
    console.log(`Mediasoup SFU has ${storage.getNumberOfTransports()} transports`);
});

By default, it does not call getStats as it turned out to be performance intensive in some cases. If you want the collector to call the getStats on objects, you can change the configuration like:

const mediasoupCollector = sfuMonitor.createMediasoupCollector({
    mediasoup,
    mediasoupCollector: {
        pollWebRtcTransportStats: (transportId) => true,
        pollPlainRtpTransportStats: (transportId) => true,
        pollPipeTransportStats: (transportId) => true,
        pollDirectTransportStats: (transportId) => true,
        pollProducerStats: (producerId) => true,
        pollConsumerStats: (consumerId) => true,
        pollDataProducerStats: (dataProducerId) => true,
        pollDataConsumerStats: (dataProducerId) => true,
    }
});

Integrate other type of SFUs

To have a custom integration, you could use AuxCollector as follows:

const collector = sfuMonitor.createAuxCollector();

collector.addTransportStatsSupplier("myUniqueGeneratedTransportId", async () => {
    const stats: SfuTransport = {

    };
    return stats;
});
// when you want to remove it:
collector.removeTransportStatsSupplier(transportId);

// similarly:
collector.addInboundRtpPadStatsSupplier("padId", ...);
collector.removeInboundRtpPadStatsSupplier("padId");

collector.addOutboundRtpPadStatsSupplier("padId", ...);
collector.removeOutboundRtpPadStatsSupplier("padId");

collector.addSctpStreamStatsSupplier("channelId", ...);
collector.removeSctpStreamSupplier("channelId");
