Container for the parameters to the PutScalingPolicy operation. Creates or updates a scaling policy for a fleet. An active scaling policy prompts Amazon GameLift to track a certain metric for a fleet and automatically change the fleet's capacity in specific circumstances. Each scaling policy contains one rule statement. Fleets can have multiple scaling policies in force simultaneously.
A scaling policy rule statement has the following structure:
[EvaluationPeriods] minutes, then
For example, this policy: "If the number of idle instances exceeds 20 for more than 15 minutes, then reduce the fleet capacity by 10 instances" could be implemented as the following rule statement:
If [IdleInstances] is [GreaterThanOrEqualToThreshold]  for  minutes, then [ChangeInCapacity] by [-10].
To create or update a scaling policy, specify a unique combination of name and fleet ID, and set the rule values. All parameters for this action are required. If successful, the policy name is returned. Scaling policies cannot be suspended or made inactive. To stop enforcing a scaling policy, call DeleteScalingPolicy.
Fleet-related operations include:
Manage fleet capacity:
public class PutScalingPolicyRequest : AmazonGameLiftRequest IAmazonWebServiceRequest
The PutScalingPolicyRequest type exposes the following members
Gets and sets the property ComparisonOperator.
Comparison operator to use when measuring the metric against the threshold value.
Gets and sets the property EvaluationPeriods.
Length of time (in minutes) the metric must be at or beyond the threshold before a scaling event is triggered.
Gets and sets the property FleetId.
Unique identifier for a fleet to apply this policy to.
Gets and sets the property MetricName.
Name of the Amazon GameLift-defined metric that is used to trigger an adjustment.
Gets and sets the property Name.
Descriptive label that is associated with a scaling policy. Policy names do not need to be unique. A fleet can have only one scaling policy with the same name.
Gets and sets the property ScalingAdjustment.
Amount of adjustment to make, based on the scaling adjustment type.
Gets and sets the property ScalingAdjustmentType.
Type of adjustment to make to a fleet's instance count (see FleetCapacity):
Gets and sets the property Threshold.
Metric value used to trigger a scaling event.
