We're looking at leveraging jitsi videobridge in our environment, but are
wondering if there are some deployment schemes that we're not seeing in
order to provide things like failover, etc.
Most of the issues we're running into seem to center around prosody and how
the components are configured to know about one another (and the prosody
server). For example, jicofo and the bridge only attempt to connect to the
prosody server at startup--what if the prosody server went down? How would
the other components reconnect? Also, I know jicofo allows for being
configured with multiple bridges in its config, but is there any way to
have it discover new bridges on the fly? Or have new bridges spin up on
the fly without modifying the prosody configuration?
Wondering if the Jitsi team (or anyone) has deployed in such a way to allow
for failover to backup xmpp servers, jicofos and videobridges such that
there'd be minimal service interruption?
