How to scale a particular service to x containers

0 votes
I have created a docker compose file and after using docker compose up command I have successfully created the containers.

I want it to scale my services up to 5 containers. How do I scale it?

Is there any simple command for the scaling of services?

Can anyone help me with this?

I think I can help you with this query. Here is what you can try, to resolve it.

There is a command to scale your services and I think it will do the job.

Try using:

docker-compose scale=n     

where n is the no. of containers up to which you want to scale your services.

I hope it helps.
