Overview

Note:

When passing StepScalingPolicyConfiguration as input to an Aws::Client method, you can use a vanilla Hash:

{
  adjustment_type: "ChangeInCapacity", # accepts ChangeInCapacity, PercentChangeInCapacity, ExactCapacity
  step_adjustments: [
    {
      metric_interval_lower_bound: 1.0,
      metric_interval_upper_bound: 1.0,
      scaling_adjustment: 1, # required
    },
  ],
  min_adjustment_magnitude: 1,
  cooldown: 1,
  metric_aggregation_type: "Average", # accepts Average, Minimum, Maximum
}

Represents a step scaling policy configuration to use with Application Auto Scaling.

Instance Attribute Details

#adjustment_typeString

Specifies whether the ScalingAdjustment value in a StepAdjustment is an absolute number or a percentage of the current capacity.

AdjustmentType is required if you are adding a new step scaling policy configuration.

Returns:

  • (String)

    Specifies whether the ScalingAdjustment value in a [StepAdjustment][1] is an absolute number or a percentage of the current capacity.

#cooldownInteger

The amount of time, in seconds, to wait for a previous scaling activity to take effect.

With scale-out policies, the intention is to continuously (but not excessively) scale out. After Application Auto Scaling successfully scales out using a step scaling policy, it starts to calculate the cooldown time. While the cooldown period is in effect, capacity added by the initiating scale-out activity is calculated as part of the desired capacity for the next scale-out activity. For example, when an alarm triggers a step scaling policy to increase the capacity by 2, the scaling activity completes successfully, and a cooldown period starts. If the alarm triggers again during the cooldown period but at a more aggressive step adjustment of 3, the previous increase of 2 is considered part of the current capacity. Therefore, only 1 is added to the capacity.

With scale-in policies, the intention is to scale in conservatively to protect your application’s availability, so scale-in activities are blocked until the cooldown period has expired. However, if another alarm triggers a scale-out activity during the cooldown period after a scale-in activity, Application Auto Scaling scales out the target immediately. In this case, the cooldown period for the scale-in activity stops and doesn\'t complete.

Application Auto Scaling provides a default value of 300 for the following scalable targets:

  • ECS services

  • Spot Fleet requests

  • EMR clusters

  • AppStream 2.0 fleets

  • Aurora DB clusters

  • Amazon SageMaker endpoint variants

  • Custom resources

For all other scalable targets, the default value is 0:

  • DynamoDB tables

  • DynamoDB global secondary indexes

  • Amazon Comprehend document classification endpoints

  • Lambda provisioned concurrency

  • Amazon Keyspaces tables

Returns:

  • (Integer)

    The amount of time, in seconds, to wait for a previous scaling activity to take effect.

#metric_aggregation_typeString

The aggregation type for the CloudWatch metrics. Valid values are Minimum, Maximum, and Average. If the aggregation type is null, the value is treated as Average.

Possible values:

  • Average
  • Minimum
  • Maximum

Returns:

  • (String)

    The aggregation type for the CloudWatch metrics.

#min_adjustment_magnitudeInteger

The minimum value to scale by when scaling by percentages. For example, suppose that you create a step scaling policy to scale out an Amazon ECS service by 25 percent and you specify a MinAdjustmentMagnitude of 2. If the service has 4 tasks and the scaling policy is performed, 25 percent of 4 is 1. However, because you specified a MinAdjustmentMagnitude of 2, Application Auto Scaling scales out the service by 2 tasks.

Valid only if the adjustment type is PercentChangeInCapacity.

Returns:

  • (Integer)

    The minimum value to scale by when scaling by percentages.

#step_adjustmentsArray<Types::StepAdjustment>

A set of adjustments that enable you to scale based on the size of the alarm breach.

At least one step adjustment is required if you are adding a new step scaling policy configuration.

Returns:

  • (Array<Types::StepAdjustment>)

    A set of adjustments that enable you to scale based on the size of the alarm breach.
