How to size my model scaling?

We provide you with the auto-scaling functionality which is based on the amount of calls you will receive on the endpoint API. Depending on this, we will add or remove nodes.

For example: you have few calls and it runs on 1 node, then a peak comes to reach more than 60% CPU usage. Automatically, we will deploy an additional node and so on.
