flumotion-admin - streaming media server administration GUI
flumotion-admin [ -h ] [ --debug debug configuration ] [ -m manager ] [
flumotion-admin is a GUI application that provides administration
capabilities for the flumotion streaming server. Using it, you can
configure and monitor the streams flumotion serves. flumotion-admin
connects to a running flumotion-manager to control the manager, start
and stop components, and display logging and monitoring information
about the running components.
You must start flumotion-manager before you can use flumotion-admin ,
but once you've done so you can just run flumotion-admin with no
arguments to start the GUI.
Show a brief help message, then exit.
Show the version number.
Be verbose in console output. This is equivalent to setting the
debug level to 3, and will override any debug specifiers.
Set the debug configuration to the specified debug string. See
the Debugging section for details of this.
Set the manager connection string in the form
Disable encryption when connecting to the manager.
In the unlikely event of something in flumotion not working, you might
want to debug it. The flumotion tools ( flumotion-worker , flumotion-
admin , and flumotion-manager ) all allow you to turn on debugging
output in two different ways.
Firstly, you can use an environment variable, FLU_DEBUG. Secondly, you
can launch the program with a -d or --debug switch. Either approach
allows you to specify a debug configuration string with the following
In this syntax, the 'name' variables can be replaced with the name of a
particular module within flumotion (such as 'admin', 'twisted', etc.).
You can also use '*' to specify all modules. The 'n' variables are
numbers from 1 to 5, larger numbers corresponding to more verbose
output (ERROR, WARN, INFO, DEBUG, and LOG). At level 4, full debugging
information is emitted.
You can also use an abbreviated form where you just supply a single
number, thisuses that debug level for all modules. Thus the simplest
way to enable full debug output for all modules is to use '-d 4' on the
A more complex example would be '-d *:3,admin:4' to set the logging
level for the admin module to DEBUG, and for all other modules to INFO.
Hopefully none. If you find any bugs, please report them at
