So I have followed the installation guide for Ubuntu and everything worked out well so far. There are no other configurations that I have done. I am hosting Jitsi Meet locally and accessing from my other devices via local network so none of this is going to routed over the Internet.
What I really want to do is to be able to have multiple meeting rooms hosting about 300 participants per meeting room. What are some of the configs that I must perform? Is this possible from a single well spec’d desktop? I am only streaming audio one way from one moderator to 300 participants per meeting room. I would want to have 4 or 5 of such meeting rooms.
I really appreciate any help from you guys for the config and possibly even the hardware or software architecture itself. Thank you in advance.
Nope, you create one core node with a jitsi-meet install … then you can stop the jvb there. Create other VMs where you install jvb only and reuse the jvb settings from the main node and just change the nickname it uses to connect and the host instead of localhost use the internal IP of the core node, where you can access port 5222 from jvb vms.
This way you have one core node with several jvbs.
Is that 4-5 conferences per node or total? Similarly is that 300 participants per node or total across 4-5 nodes? In other words, i’m not sure if you’re saying to do 4-5 conferences total with total amount of users being 300 (so around 50 users per conference), or if you are saying each node can do 4-5 conferences with 300 participants each meaning 1 node can have 1500 users connected to it. Can you clarify that?
A well-spec’d main node can handle thousands of participants at the same time. To handle a meeting with about 300 participants per meeting room, only audio, one adequately spec’d bridge (JVB) is fine. So, for 4-5 such meetings, a corresponding number of bridges is required.
