we recently installed our very own Jitsi Meet instance. It works fine, but I have some points that are not quite clear to me.
After a conference ends, will the room instantly be closed when the last participant leaves? We tested with some of our coworkers, and even after all users left the room a non-moderator was able to rejoin the conference without password or login.
I could not find any valuable hardware requirements for Jitsi Meet. I did find a post on this forum saying 1 CPU and 1 GB RAM should be enough to run it, but in our case, we had to upgrade our server to have enough performance for 3-4 users without video lags. Actually we run a Debian 9, 4vCPU, 16 GB RAM cloud server by Hetzner (CX-41), exclusively for Jitsi. This server did also breach a load average of 4.0 with 5 users (webcam and or screensharing enabled), but it ran fine with just 3 users. From this test I would assume one should at least plan 2 CPUs per user - is this a realistic scale?
Another thing that should be elaborated in some kind of FAQ or installation tutorial is, that the last visited rooms are displayed on a per-user (or even more exact on a per-browser) base, since we plan to host meetings with multiple customers there and don’t want customer one to see we had a meeting with customer b before. Maybe thats just a problem in our testing environment, because all my colleagues joined the same rooms and therefore had all the rooms displayed that were ever created on the Jitsi server. Gave us a little shock there
Thanks for feedback and clarification!
