Current version: 0.1.1 released on 2024-06-18


Currently this has two components:

  • jilo is the script for collecting data from the logs. It is meant to be installed and run on the server and it needs read permissions for the logs. Currently it works with Videobridge and Jicofo log files. You can run it with cron to periodically update the new data from the logs.

  • jilo-cli is a command line client for displaying stats from an already populated jilo database It needs access to the jilo database.


You can install it in the following ways:

  • use the latest deb package from the APT repo - recommended for Debian/Ubuntu
  • use the latest RPM package - recommended for rpm-based systems
  • download the latest release from the "Releases" section here
  • clone the git repo:
git clone https://github.com/lindeas/jilo.git
cd jilo


The config file jilo.conf overrides the default settings. For more details check the comments in the scripts or use the --help option


The database can be an SQLite file or MySQL/MariaDB database. The default is local sqlite file.


You can run jilo once or add it to a crontab. If you run it periodically it will keep track of all. events, detecting when the logs rotate and continuing from where it left on the previous run.

Use jilo-cli to visualize the info from the database that was gathered previously with jilo

jilo-cli can search for conference and participant events, and display events in a given time period.. Where appropriate, combine jilo-cli with sort, wc and other tools to get total numbers.
