Red5 Pro Stream Manager is a streaming architecture management and information service which helps automate the process of creating and deleting Red5 Pro server instances. Stream Manager also coordinates between broadcasters and subscribers to help them find the right servers for their broadcast and subscribe actions respectively.

Red5 Pro Stream Manager provides you with accurate stream statistics over simple HTTP-based REST API calls, once stream publishing has started for the stream. It provides automatic traffic management using the Red5 Pro Autoscaler component. Your server fleet automatically expands and contracts as traffic increases and decreases over time. This reduces unnecessary server usage, thereby reducing your cloud platform bills. Stream Manager also monitors the Red5 Pro service on each node and replaces faulty nodes to prevent service disruptions.
