Backend server setup

After installation, backend server configuration files are in /usr/local/FlashphonerWebCallServerOAM/conf folder:

#cd /usr/local/FlashphonerWebCallServerOAM/conf
#ls
log4j2.properties     
wcsoam-core.properties
wcsoam.properties     
WCS-OAM.version
wss.jks

Where

  • log4j2.properties - backend server logging configuration
  • wcsoam-core.properties - backend server JVM configuration
  • wcsoam.properties - backend server main configuration file
  • WCS-OAM.version - backend server version
  • wss.jks - SSL certificate storage

To apply any configuration changes, backend server must be restarted.

Metrics storage DB connection setup

Influx BD connection setup

The following parameter in wcsoam.properties file should be set to allow to store metrics to Influx DB

influxdb_enabled=true

DB URL should be set for connection setup. By default, if Influx DB is on the same server, URL should be set as

influxdb_url=http://localhost:8086

DB name and access parameters should also be set

influxdb_database=wcs_oam
influxdb_user=root
influxdb_password=root

By default, WCS OAM connects to Influx DB via UDP:

influxdb_udp=true
influxdb_udp_port=8089

In this case, metric values can be lost. To escape loss, metric values can be passed using HTTP POST query as follows

POST /write?u=root&p=root&db=wcs_oam&rp=default&precision=n&consistency=one HTTP/1.1

3-5062030c-9def-49c2-a89e-639d664ab806 AUDIO_CODEC=102i,AUDIO_LOST=3795015i,AUDIO_RATE=137776i,AUDIO_SYNC=123432141899i,seq=26558i 1562263828767000000

Metrics writing can be switched to HTTP with the following parameter

influxdb_udp=false

Anyway, metric values are read from Influx DB using HTTP GET query as follows

GET /query?u=root&p=root&db=wcs_oam&q=SELECT+*+FROM+%221-89dc5510-a198-11e9-a049-030fe6b5675c%22+order+by+time+desc+limit+10+offset+0 HTTP/1.1

Timescale DB connection setup

The following parameter in wcsoam.properties file should be set to allow to store metrics to Timescale DB

metric_store=timescale

DB URL and access parameters should be set for connection setup

timescale.url=jdbc:postgresql://127.0.0.1:5432/wcsstat
timescale.username=wcsoam
timescale.password=wcsoam

Connection tuning

Metric values batch size to write to DB can be set with the following parameter

timescale_batch_size=1000

In this case metrics will be written to DB in batches of 1000 values.

Stream history and data acquisition settings DB connection setup

History storage support is enabled with the following parameter

historydb_enabled=true

Using H2

H2 embedded database is allowed for debug and testing purposes only, not for production usage

If H2 connection is necessary, add to wcsoam.properties file the following

spring.h2.console.enabled=true
spring.datasource.url=jdbc:h2:./wcs_oam
spring.datasource.driver-class-name=org.h2.Driver
spring.datasource.username=sa
spring.datasource.password=
spring.jpa.database-platform=org.hibernate.dialect.H2Dialect
spring.jpa.show-sql=false
spring.jpa.hibernate.ddl-auto=update

Using Postgresql

To connect to Postgresql, add to wcsoam.properties file the following

spring.datasource.url=jdbc:postgresql://127.0.0.1:5432/wcsoam
spring.datasource.driver-class-name=org.postgresql.Driver
spring.datasource.username=wcsoam
spring.datasource.password=wcsoam
spring.jpa.database-platform=org.hibernate.dialect.PostgreSQLDialect
spring.jpa.show-sql=false
spring.jpa.hibernate.ddl-auto=create
spring.jpa.properties.hibernate.enable_lazy_load_no_trans=true

Where

SQL DB connection tuning

Under high load, it may be necessary to change DB records queue size. It may be done with the following parameter

historydb_queue_size=3000

By default, queue size is 3000 records.

SQL queries logging

If necessary, SQL queries logging can be enabled for debug purposes using the following parameters in wcsoam.properties file

logging.level.org.hibernate.SQL=debug
logging.level.org.hibernate.type.descriptor.sql=trace

Note that metrics store to TimescaleDB will also be logged in this case.

WCS interaction setup

By default, backend server listens to WCS server connections for metrics acquisition on TCP port 7777. This port can be changed with the following parameter

listening_port=7777

Connection authentication key should be set with the following parameter

security_key=123456789

By default, authentication key is set to 123.

Also, backend server connects to WCS server to get published stream data using REST API. WCS port to connect is set with the following parameter

wcs_rest_port=8081

Client connection setup

SSL configuration

Backend server allows client connections using HTTPS and Secure Websocket. SSL is configured with the following parameters

server.ssl.key-store-type=JKS
server.ssl.key-store=file:/usr/local/FlashphonerWebCallServerOAM/conf/wss.jks
server.ssl.key-store-password=password
server.ssl.key-alias=selfsigned

Where

  • server.ssl.key-store-type - SSL certificate storage type; only JKS is supported
  • server.ssl.key-store - SSL certificate storage location
  • server.ssl.key-store-password - SSL certificate storage password
  • server.ssl.key-alias - domain name

By default, backend server is shipped with self-signed certificate. SSL certificate can be imported to backend server SSL storage using keytool in the same way as for WCS server. If wildcard certificate is used, and backend server is in the same domain with WCS server, WCS SSL storage file can be copied to backend server configuration folder, for example

cp -f /usr/local/FlashphonerWebCallServer/conf/wss.jks /usr/local/FlashphonerWebCallServerOAM/conf/

Port configuration

HTTPS port to handle REST queries, WSS connections and for web interface access is set with the following parameter

server.port = 8090

Backend server starting

Backend server can be started from /usr/local/FlashphonerWebCallServerOAM/bin folder

cd /usr/local/FlashphonerWebCallServerOAM/bin
./wcsoam start

or, if it was installed as system service

systemctl start wcsoam

Backend server stopping

Backend server can be stopped from /usr/local/FlashphonerWebCallServerOAM/bin folder

cd /usr/local/FlashphonerWebCallServerOAM/bin
./wcsoam stop

or, if it was installed as system service

systemctl stop wcsoam
