Jitsi videobridge is the media server that is developed by the jitsi team. The main key limited resource of the instance is the network bandwidth. If the number of streams increases, network bandwidth usage will increase. When we design a system we have to set up necessary resources for the system to carry on quality conferences. Say if we need c5 xlarge 5 instances to handle our conference during peak time but We might need only one c5 xlarge instance to handle conference rest of the time. In this scenario our instances are under utilized if we have 5 servers running all the time to meet the peak demand. So we recommend auto scaling of servers to avoid this. Please find below the procedure you should follow in autoscaling the jitsi videobridge.
