Creates a new fleet to run your game servers. A fleet is a set of Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instances, each of which can run multiple server processes to host game sessions. You configure a fleet to create instances with certain hardware specifications (see Amazon EC2 Instance Types for more information), and deploy a specified game build to each instance. A newly created fleet passes through several statuses; once it reaches the ACTIVE status, it can begin hosting game sessions.

To create a new fleet, you must specify the following: (1) fleet name, (2) build ID of an uploaded game build, (3) an EC2 instance type, and (4) a run-time configuration that describes which server processes to run on each instance in the fleet. (Although the run-time configuration is not a required parameter, the fleet cannot be successfully activated without it.)

You can also configure the new fleet with the following settings:

If you use Amazon CloudWatch for metrics, you can add the new fleet to a metric group. This allows you to view aggregated metrics for a set of fleets. Once you specify a metric group, the new fleet's metrics are included in the metric group's data.

You have the option of creating a VPC peering connection with the new fleet. For more information, see VPC Peering with Amazon GameLift Fleets.
