My Wowza Engine Server have a problem that HLS session don't release gracefully.
For my instance, sometime the HLS connection increases fastly, but the network bandwidth don't increase respectively.
Two pictures, which I caught below, show that
You can see the number of connection increase from about 200 to 2300 in the period of time 10:05:00 - 10:20:00 PM.
However, the output bandwidth (orange line) is just about 40 Mbps.
Maybe the HLS sessions not release in the period of time above?
