  <h3 id="overview">Overview</h3>
  <p>Icecast provides extensive run time statistics. Both in the form of active connection numbers and cumulative
counters (since server startup or respectively source connection startup).</p>


<div class="article">
  <h3 id="xslt">HTML interface, XSLT generated</h3>

  <p>Icecast comes with a basic, XHTML web interface. It exposes a basic set of server statistics that should
fulfil basic user needs. If so desired the files in web-root can be customized to contain more or less
information (see section on raw XML data below).<br />
<strong>We strongly discourage attempts to scrape data from the web interface</strong> as we do not consider this an
API and will change it, even completely, between versions!<br />
<strong>The preferred ways are custom XSLT, JSON and raw XML.</strong></p>

<div class="article">
  <h3 id="xslt_advanced">Advanced machine readable data, XSLT generated</h3>

  <p>Icecast uses the very powerful libXSLT engine to transform its internal raw statistical data into custom tailored interfaces.
Many people have written custom XSLT code that produces e.g. plain text “now playing”, XSPF, VCLT, munin interface data, etc.  </p>

  <p>Since version 2.4.0 Icecast includes a basic JSON API (<code>/status-json.xsl</code>) based on a xml2json template by Doeke Zanstra
(see <code>xml2json.xslt</code>). It exposes a basic set of server statistics that should fulfil basic user needs. The intention is
to not break backwards compatibility of this interface in the future, still we recommend to design robust software that
can deal with possible changes like addition or removal of variables.</p>


<div class="article">

  <p>This section contains information about the raw XML server statistics data available inside Icecast. An example
stats XML tree will be shown and each element will be described. The following example stats tree will be used:  </p>
