We have had monitor our links and uplinks and there wasn't any oversubscribtion. I looking for usefull multicast stream monitoring tool now. Any suggestion?Thank you!

one of my customers had issues with their iptv distribution and we consulted this guy.

The solution he has, subscribes iptv channels on monitoring boxes and uses all kinds of
heuristics to look into not just the packates but also the video inside the multicast streams.

It turned out that in the specific customers case packet reordering was the issue which was
easily eliminated.

Hacing monitoring in place is also great for finger pointing issues where you want to prove
that it's not your network but the tv station
screwing up the signal.

Greetings
Christian
