Wowza LoadBalancer with Auto Scaling / CloudFormation on AWS EC2

If I understand the LoadBalancer correctly, it can manage when new servers are registered or removed. I’d like to know how I can tie this in with Auto Scaling and/or CloudFormation to auto-create those new servers? Are there any examples or tutorials to follow?


Hello there,

Yes, a properly configured Load Balancer Sender/Edge server will announce itself to the LB Listener.

The best and easiest trigger is connection counts. You can poll the load balancer serverInfoXML


There is nothing built-in for this, however. You will have to use EC2 tools and your own process to poll serverInfoXML.

In the event you need professional assistance with this setup, you can post a request to the Find a Consultant forum.

Kind regards,
