Streaming/FTP network description

The streaming/FTP network is for media transfers and FTP traffic. The streaming/FTP network network traffic must be separated from the control network traffic and the media (iSCSI) network traffic. This separation may be provided by different subnets, VLANs, or physical switch fabrics. The control network and the streaming/FTP network, if on different subnets, may be on the same VLAN. The control network and the media (iSCSI) network must not be on the same VLAN. Static IP addresses with name resolution via host files are recommended for the streaming/FTP network. Hostnames of network adapters that are dedicated to the streaming/FTP network must be aliased in the hosts file with the _he0 suffix. This directs the streaming traffic to the correct port.

The streaming/FTP subnet does not carry low-resolution traffic, such as live streaming (multicast) and proxy file access. That traffic is on the control subnet.

In a GV STRATUS system, if you use generic FTP for archive, the streaming/FTP network carries the archive traffic. Dedicated connections to the streaming/FTP network are required on the following GV STRATUS servers:
  • Express server
  • Core server
  • Render Engine server
