update-auto-scaling-group

Description

We strongly recommend that all Auto Scaling groups use launch templates to ensure full functionality for Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling and Amazon EC2.

Updates the configuration for the specified Auto Scaling group.

To update an Auto Scaling group, specify the name of the group and the parameter that you want to change. Any parameters that you don't specify are not changed by this update request. The new settings take effect on any scaling activities after this call returns.

If you associate a new launch configuration or template with an Auto Scaling group, all new instances will get the updated configuration. Existing instances continue to run with the configuration that they were originally launched with. When you update a group to specify a mixed instances policy instead of a launch configuration or template, existing instances may be replaced to match the new purchasing options that you specified in the policy. For example, if the group currently has 100% On-Demand capacity and the policy specifies 50% Spot capacity, this means that half of your instances will be gradually terminated and relaunched as Spot Instances. When replacing instances, Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling launches new instances before terminating the old ones, so that updating your group does not compromise the performance or availability of your application.

Note the following about changing DesiredCapacity , MaxSize , or MinSize :

  • If a scale-in activity occurs as a result of a new DesiredCapacity value that is lower than the current size of the group, the Auto Scaling group uses its termination policy to determine which instances to terminate.
  • If you specify a new value for MinSize without specifying a value for DesiredCapacity , and the new MinSize is larger than the current size of the group, this sets the group's DesiredCapacity to the new MinSize value.
  • If you specify a new value for MaxSize without specifying a value for DesiredCapacity , and the new MaxSize is smaller than the current size of the group, this sets the group's DesiredCapacity to the new MaxSize value.

To see which parameters have been set, call the DescribeAutoScalingGroups API. To view the scaling policies for an Auto Scaling group, call the DescribePolicies API. If the group has scaling policies, you can update them by calling the PutScalingPolicy API.

InstancesDistribution -> (structure)

Specifies the instances distribution.

OnDemandAllocationStrategy -> (string)

The order of the launch template overrides to use in fulfilling On-Demand capacity.

If you specify lowest-price , Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling uses price to determine the order, launching the lowest price first.

If you specify prioritized , Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling uses the priority that you assigned to each launch template override, launching the highest priority first. If all your On-Demand capacity cannot be fulfilled using your highest priority instance, then Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling launches the remaining capacity using the second priority instance type, and so on.

Default: lowest-price for Auto Scaling groups that specify InstanceRequirements in the overrides and prioritized for Auto Scaling groups that don't.

OnDemandBaseCapacity -> (integer)

The minimum amount of the Auto Scaling group's capacity that must be fulfilled by On-Demand Instances. This base portion is launched first as your group scales.

Default: 0

OnDemandPercentageAboveBaseCapacity -> (integer)

Controls the percentages of On-Demand Instances and Spot Instances for your additional capacity beyond OnDemandBaseCapacity . Expressed as a number (for example, 20 specifies 20% On-Demand Instances, 80% Spot Instances). If set to 100, only On-Demand Instances are used.

Default: 100

SpotAllocationStrategy -> (string)

Indicates how to allocate instances across Spot Instance pools.

If the allocation strategy is lowest-price , the Auto Scaling group launches instances using the Spot pools with the lowest price, and evenly allocates your instances across the number of Spot pools that you specify.

If the allocation strategy is capacity-optimized (recommended), the Auto Scaling group launches instances using Spot pools that are optimally chosen based on the available Spot capacity. Alternatively, you can use capacity-optimized-prioritized and set the order of instance types in the list of launch template overrides from highest to lowest priority (from first to last in the list). Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling honors the instance type priorities on a best-effort basis but optimizes for capacity first.

Default: lowest-price

SpotInstancePools -> (integer)

The number of Spot Instance pools across which to allocate your Spot Instances. The Spot pools are determined from the different instance types in the overrides. Valid only when the Spot allocation strategy is lowest-price . Value must be in the range of 1–20.

Default: 2

SpotMaxPrice -> (string)

The maximum price per unit hour that you are willing to pay for a Spot Instance. If you keep the value at its default (unspecified), Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling uses the On-Demand price as the maximum Spot price. To remove a value that you previously set, include the property but specify an empty string ("") for the value.

--capacity-rebalance | --no-capacity-rebalance (boolean)

Enables or disables Capacity Rebalancing. For more information, see Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling Capacity Rebalancing in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide .

--context (string)

Reserved.

--desired-capacity-type (string)

The unit of measurement for the value specified for desired capacity. Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling supports DesiredCapacityType for attribute-based instance type selection only. For more information, see Creating an Auto Scaling group using attribute-based instance type selection in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide .

By default, Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling specifies units , which translates into number of instances.

Valid values: units | vcpu | memory-mib

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

This example updates the specified Auto Scaling group to use a mixed instances policy and enables capacity rebalancing. This structure lets you specify groups with Spot and On-Demand capacities and use different launch templates for different architectures.

aws autoscaling update-auto-scaling-group \
    --cli-input-json file://~/config.json

Contents of config.json:

{
    "AutoScalingGroupName": "my-asg",
    "CapacityRebalance": true,
    "MixedInstancesPolicy": {
        "LaunchTemplate": {
            "LaunchTemplateSpecification": {
                "LaunchTemplateName": "my-launch-template-for-x86",
                "Version": "$Latest"
            },
            "Overrides": [
                {
                    "InstanceType": "c6g.large",
                    "LaunchTemplateSpecification": {
                        "LaunchTemplateName": "my-launch-template-for-arm",
                        "Version": "$Latest"
                    }
                },
                {
                    "InstanceType": "c5.large"
                },
                {
                    "InstanceType": "c5a.large"
                }
            ]
        },
        "InstancesDistribution": {
            "OnDemandPercentageAboveBaseCapacity": 50,
            "SpotAllocationStrategy": "capacity-optimized"
        }
    }
}
