The type of request. Indicates whether the fleet will only request the target capacity or also attempt to maintain it. When you request a certain target capacity, the fleet will only place the required bids. It will not attempt to replenish Spot instances if capacity is diminished, nor will it submit bids in alternative Spot pools if capacity is not available. When you want to maintain a certain target capacity, fleet will place the required bids to meet this target capacity. It will also automatically replenish any interrupted instances. Default: maintain.
