Under your mountpoint settings you can state a program that is run when the
source is started/stopped.

It is passed a parameter which is the name of the mountpoint that is
starting. The processing of the stream does not wait for the script to end.


The /home/icecast/bin/source-start file could be:

/bin/echo "Stream - Start: " $(date) >> var/log/encoder.log

And the /home/icecast/bin/source-stop file could be:

/bin/echo "Stream - Stop : " $(date) >> var/log/encoder.log

Use appropriate pathnames for your set up.

And then you might end up with an encoder.log file that looks a little like

Stream -  Stop :  Wed Dec 1 10:20:49 GMT 2021
Stream  - Start:  Wed Dec 1 10:21:43 GMT 2021
Stream  - Stop :  Thu Dec 23 04:59:13 GMT 2021
Stream  - Start:  Thu Dec 23 04:59:21 GMT 2021
Stream  - Stop :  Fri Feb 4 06:28:39 GMT 2022
Stream  - Start:  Fri Feb 4 06:28:48 GMT 2022

That will show you when an encoder has connected/disconnected.

Hope that helps
