This page contains settings for various purposes.

Log Settings


Settings affecting the SnapStream log

Maximum Log Depth: Log files will be deleted when they reach this age. The default is 365 days (one year).

Maximum Debug Message Depth: When a log file reaches this age, Debug messages will be deleted from the log (this step greatly reduces the amount of disk space occupied by the log files). The default is 45 days.

Log Backup Time: The log search index is backed up daily. This setting determines the time at which that happens.

SnapStream.Net Settings



Settings affecting how the system connects to SnapStream.Net for Program Guide data

Use Proxy: Determines whether Enterprise TV will use a proxy server when attempting to connect to SnapStream.Net. Note: the proxy settings will not appear unless Use Proxy is checked.

Proxy Address: The address of your proxy server.

Proxy Port: The port on which client machines connect to your proxy server. 

Use Default Credentials: Enterprise TV will use the SnapStream Broker's service logon credentials (see Software Services) to authenticate with your proxy server. If it is unchecked, you can enter a username and password manually.

If you aren't sure what information to enter on this page, contact your network administrator.
