Document URL: 

Section Number and Name: 
Scaling an Ingress controller

Describe the issue: 
The docs are technically correct and the steps dont need any changing. However, from a customer usability standpoint, a likely workflow would be:

1) "I need to scale up my routers!"
2) oc project openshift-ingress
3) I see my routers!
router-default-9d6f4ffc5-2nkg8   0/1     Running            0          38m
router-default-9d6f4ffc5-ljqcf   1/1     Running            0          56m
4) How do I scale?
5) Go to the docs
6) Search "router"
7) The doc for scaling the pods named "router" does not appear

Suggestions for improvement: 
Add the keyword "router" to the doc, or show an example output with the router pods
