It’s very useful to ensure that enough application instances is available to serve requests, and also to ensure no over allocation when request number is low.
What can you configure?
We can configure number of minimum and maximum instances based on CPU utilization, HTTP throughput per second, and HTTP latency time.
We also can schedule number of minimum and maximum instances based on date, time, and day of the week.
Do you understand Autoscaler schedules?
Yes, it allows autoscaler to automatically scale number of minimum and maximum application instances based on date, time, and day of the week.
