Synopsis

Calls the Amazon GameLift Service UpdateFleetCapacity API operation.

Syntax

Update-GMLFleetCapacity
-FleetId <String>
-DesiredInstance <Int32>
-Location <String>
-MaxSize <Int32>
-MinSize <Int32>
-Select <String>
-PassThru <SwitchParameter>
-Force <SwitchParameter>

Description

Updates capacity settings for a fleet. For fleets with multiple locations, use this operation to manage capacity settings in each location individually. Fleet capacity determines the number of game sessions and players that can be hosted based on the fleet configuration. Use this operation to set the following fleet capacity properties:
  • Minimum/maximum size: Set hard limits on fleet capacity. GameLift cannot set the fleet's capacity to a value outside of this range, whether the capacity is changed manually or through automatic scaling.
  • Desired capacity: Manually set the number of Amazon EC2 instances to be maintained in a fleet location. Before changing a fleet's desired capacity, you may want to call DescribeEC2InstanceLimits to get the maximum capacity of the fleet's Amazon EC2 instance type. Alternatively, consider using automatic scaling to adjust capacity based on player demand.
This operation can be used in the following ways:
  • To update capacity for a fleet's home Region, or if the fleet has no remote locations, omit the Location parameter. The fleet must be in ACTIVE status.
  • To update capacity for a fleet's remote location, include the Location parameter set to the location to be updated. The location must be in ACTIVE status.
If successful, capacity settings are updated immediately. In response a change in desired capacity, GameLift initiates steps to start new instances or terminate existing instances in the requested fleet location. This continues until the location's active instance count matches the new desired instance count. You can track a fleet's current capacity by calling DescribeFleetCapacity or DescribeFleetLocationCapacity. If the requested desired instance count is higher than the instance type's limit, the LimitExceeded exception occurs.

Parameters

-DesiredInstance <Int32>
The number of Amazon EC2 instances you want to maintain in the specified fleet location. This value must fall between the minimum and maximum size limits.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
AliasesDesiredInstances
-FleetId <String>
A unique identifier for the fleet to update capacity settings for. You can use either the fleet ID or ARN value.
Required?True
Position?1
Accept pipeline input?True (ByValue, ByPropertyName)
This parameter overrides confirmation prompts to force the cmdlet to continue its operation. This parameter should always be used with caution.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-Location <String>
The name of a remote location to update fleet capacity settings for, in the form of an Amazon Web Services Region code such as us-west-2.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-MaxSize <Int32>
The maximum number of instances that are allowed in the specified fleet location. If this parameter is not set, the default is 1.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-MinSize <Int32>
The minimum number of instances that are allowed in the specified fleet location. If this parameter is not set, the default is 0.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-PassThru <SwitchParameter>
Changes the cmdlet behavior to return the value passed to the FleetId parameter. The -PassThru parameter is deprecated, use -Select '^FleetId' instead. This parameter will be removed in a future version.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-Select <String>
Use the -Select parameter to control the cmdlet output. The default value is 'FleetId'. Specifying -Select '*' will result in the cmdlet returning the whole service response (Amazon.GameLift.Model.UpdateFleetCapacityResponse). Specifying the name of a property of type Amazon.GameLift.Model.UpdateFleetCapacityResponse will result in that property being returned. Specifying -Select '^ParameterName' will result in the cmdlet returning the selected cmdlet parameter value.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)

Common Credential and Region Parameters

-AccessKey <String>
The AWS access key for the user account. This can be a temporary access key if the corresponding session token is supplied to the -SessionToken parameter.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
AliasesAK
-Credential <AWSCredentials>
An AWSCredentials object instance containing access and secret key information, and optionally a token for session-based credentials.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByValue, ByPropertyName)
-EndpointUrl <String>
The endpoint to make the call against.Note: This parameter is primarily for internal AWS use and is not required/should not be specified for normal usage. The cmdlets normally determine which endpoint to call based on the region specified to the -Region parameter or set as default in the shell (via Set-DefaultAWSRegion). Only specify this parameter if you must direct the call to a specific custom endpoint.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-NetworkCredential <PSCredential>
Used with SAML-based authentication when ProfileName references a SAML role profile. Contains the network credentials to be supplied during authentication with the configured identity provider's endpoint. This parameter is not required if the user's default network identity can or should be used during authentication.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByValue, ByPropertyName)
-ProfileLocation <String>
Used to specify the name and location of the ini-format credential file (shared with the AWS CLI and other AWS SDKs)If this optional parameter is omitted this cmdlet will search the encrypted credential file used by the AWS SDK for .NET and AWS Toolkit for Visual Studio first. If the profile is not found then the cmdlet will search in the ini-format credential file at the default location: (user's home directory)\.aws\credentials.If this parameter is specified then this cmdlet will only search the ini-format credential file at the location given.As the current folder can vary in a shell or during script execution it is advised that you use specify a fully qualified path instead of a relative path.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
AliasesAWSProfilesLocation, ProfilesLocation
-ProfileName <String>
The user-defined name of an AWS credentials or SAML-based role profile containing credential information. The profile is expected to be found in the secure credential file shared with the AWS SDK for .NET and AWS Toolkit for Visual Studio. You can also specify the name of a profile stored in the .ini-format credential file used with the AWS CLI and other AWS SDKs.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
AliasesStoredCredentials, AWSProfileName
-Region <Object>
The system name of an AWS region or an AWSRegion instance. This governs the endpoint that will be used when calling service operations. Note that the AWS resources referenced in a call are usually region-specific.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
AliasesRegionToCall
-SecretKey <String>
The AWS secret key for the user account. This can be a temporary secret key if the corresponding session token is supplied to the -SessionToken parameter.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
AliasesSK, SecretAccessKey
-SessionToken <String>
The session token if the access and secret keys are temporary session-based credentials.

Outputs

This cmdlet returns a System.String object. The service call response (type Amazon.GameLift.Model.UpdateFleetCapacityResponse) can also be referenced from properties attached to the cmdlet entry in the $AWSHistory stack.
