PreAllocateStorage

Allocates storage in a rolling buffer.

HPE Media Server must allocate storage before it can write video to a rolling buffer. By default, HPE Media Server allocates storage the first time it needs to write to the rolling buffer. Allocating storage is not instantaneous so this could delay the start of recording.

To ensure that HPE Media Server can start recording immediately, use this action to allocate storage before you start processing.

Type: Asynchronous

Parameter Description Required
Name (Deprecated, use Stream instead). The name of the rolling buffer for which you want to allocate storage. If you do not specify a name, HPE Media Server allocates storage for all rolling buffers. No
Stream The name of the rolling buffer for which you want to allocate storage. If you do not specify a name, HPE Media Server allocates storage for all rolling buffers. No

Response

This is an asynchronous action, so it returns a token:

<autnresponse>
  <action>PREALLOCATESTORAGE</action>
  <response>SUCCESS</response>
  <responsedata>
    <token>MTAuMi4xMDQuODI6MTQwMDA6UFJFQUxMT0NBVEVTVE9SQUdFOjI0OTE5MzMxMQ==</token>
  </responsedata>
</autnresponse>

You can use the token with the QueueInfo action to retrieve the action response:

<autnresponse>
  <action>QUEUEINFO</action>
  <response>SUCCESS</response>
  <responsedata>
    <actions>
      <action>
        <status>Finished</status>
        <queued_time>2014-Oct-23 17:36:13</queued_time>
        <time_in_queue>0</time_in_queue>
        <process_start_time>2014-Oct-23 17:36:13</process_start_time>
        <time_processing>72</time_processing>
        <process_end_time>2014-Oct-23 17:37:25</process_end_time>
        <token>MTAuMi4xMDQuODI6MTQwMDA6UFJFQUxMT0NBVEVTVE9SQUdFOjI0OTE5MzMxMQ==</token>
      </action>
    </actions>
  </responsedata>
</autnresponse>
