Enable LG auto scaling feature in stormrunner

Enable auto scaling feature in stormrunner. Currently, there is manual assignment of LGs before starting a load test in the backend.

For example: 15 Users per LG assigned for Truclient IE scripts on the backend - which isn't visible/ configurable from stormrunner front end to the user. If the script is heavy and requires more than 15 LGs, the test just continues along with previously assigned LGs and  just shows high CPU alerts, this test result isn't useful as it gives higher response times due to LG issues.

Instead of hard setting number of LGs before starting the load test, it should ideally auto-scale from a min to max value as the resource consumption increases, add more LGs to sustain the required load. This auto-scaling capability is already available in AWS. Then Stormrunner will be providing complete capabilities of a cloud performance testing solution. It will also reduce resource cost.
