Defined in:
(unknown)

Overview

Constructs a service interface object. Each API operation is exposed as a function on service.

Service Description

With Application Auto Scaling, you can configure automatic scaling for the following resources:

  • Amazon ECS services

  • Amazon EC2 Spot Fleet requests

  • Amazon EMR clusters

  • Amazon AppStream 2.0 fleets

  • Amazon DynamoDB tables and global secondary indexes throughput capacity

  • Amazon Aurora Replicas

  • Amazon SageMaker endpoint variants

  • Custom resources provided by your own applications or services

  • Amazon Comprehend document classification endpoints

  • AWS Lambda function provisioned concurrency

  • Amazon Keyspaces (for Apache Cassandra) tables

API Summary

The Application Auto Scaling service API includes three key sets of actions:

  • Register and manage scalable targets - Register AWS or custom resources as scalable targets (a resource that Application Auto Scaling can scale), set minimum and maximum capacity limits, and retrieve information on existing scalable targets.

  • Configure and manage automatic scaling - Define scaling policies to dynamically scale your resources in response to CloudWatch alarms, schedule one-time or recurring scaling actions, and retrieve your recent scaling activity history.

  • Suspend and resume scaling - Temporarily suspend and later resume automatic scaling by calling the RegisterScalableTarget API action for any Application Auto Scaling scalable target. You can suspend and resume (individually or in combination) scale-out activities that are triggered by a scaling policy, scale-in activities that are triggered by a scaling policy, and scheduled scaling.

To learn more about Application Auto Scaling, including information about granting IAM users required permissions for Application Auto Scaling actions, see the Application Auto Scaling User Guide.

Sending a Request Using ApplicationAutoScaling

var applicationautoscaling = new AWS.ApplicationAutoScaling();
applicationautoscaling.deregisterScalableTarget(params, function (err, data) {
  if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
  else     console.log(data);           // successful response
});

Locking the API Version

In order to ensure that the ApplicationAutoScaling object uses this specific API, you can construct the object by passing the apiVersion option to the constructor:

var applicationautoscaling = new AWS.ApplicationAutoScaling({apiVersion: '2016-02-06'});

You can also set the API version globally in AWS.config.apiVersions using the applicationautoscaling service identifier:

AWS.config.apiVersions = {
  applicationautoscaling: '2016-02-06',
  // other service API versions
};

var applicationautoscaling = new AWS.ApplicationAutoScaling();

          • "TargetTrackingScaling"
        • StepScalingPolicyConfiguration — (map)

          A step scaling policy.

          • AdjustmentType — (String)

            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.

            Possible values include:
            • "ChangeInCapacity"
            • "PercentChangeInCapacity"
            • "ExactCapacity"
          • StepAdjustments — (Array<map>)

            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.

            • MetricIntervalLowerBound — (Float)

              The lower bound for the difference between the alarm threshold and the CloudWatch metric. If the metric value is above the breach threshold, the lower bound is inclusive (the metric must be greater than or equal to the threshold plus the lower bound). Otherwise, it is exclusive (the metric must be greater than the threshold plus the lower bound). A null value indicates negative infinity.

            • MetricIntervalUpperBound — (Float)

              The upper bound for the difference between the alarm threshold and the CloudWatch metric. If the metric value is above the breach threshold, the upper bound is exclusive (the metric must be less than the threshold plus the upper bound). Otherwise, it is inclusive (the metric must be less than or equal to the threshold plus the upper bound). A null value indicates positive infinity.

              The upper bound must be greater than the lower bound.

            • ScalingAdjustmentrequired — (Integer)

              The amount by which to scale, based on the specified adjustment type. A positive value adds to the current capacity while a negative number removes from the current capacity.

          • MinAdjustmentMagnitude — (Integer)

            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.

          • Cooldown — (Integer)

            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.

After Application Auto Scaling successfully scales out using a target tracking scaling policy, it starts to calculate the cooldown time. While the scale-out cooldown period is in effect, the capacity added by the initiating scale-out activity is calculated as part of the desired capacity for the next scale-out activity.

putScalingPolicy(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

Creates or updates a scaling policy for an Application Auto Scaling scalable target.

Each scalable target is identified by a service namespace, resource ID, and scalable dimension. A scaling policy applies to the scalable target identified by those three attributes. You cannot create a scaling policy until you have registered the resource as a scalable target.

Multiple scaling policies can be in force at the same time for the same scalable target. You can have one or more target tracking scaling policies, one or more step scaling policies, or both. However, there is a chance that multiple policies could conflict, instructing the scalable target to scale out or in at the same time. Application Auto Scaling gives precedence to the policy that provides the largest capacity for both scale out and scale in. For example, if one policy increases capacity by 3, another policy increases capacity by 200 percent, and the current capacity is 10, Application Auto Scaling uses the policy with the highest calculated capacity (200% of 10 = 20) and scales out to 30.

We recommend caution, however, when using target tracking scaling policies with step scaling policies because conflicts between these policies can cause undesirable behavior. For example, if the step scaling policy initiates a scale-in activity before the target tracking policy is ready to scale in, the scale-in activity will not be blocked. After the scale-in activity completes, the target tracking policy could instruct the scalable target to scale out again.

For more information, see Target Tracking Scaling Policies and Step Scaling Policies in the Application Auto Scaling User Guide.

Note: If a scalable target is deregistered, the scalable target is no longer available to execute scaling policies. Any scaling policies that were specified for the scalable target are deleted.

    • PolicyType — (String)

      The policy type. This parameter is required if you are creating a scaling policy.

      The following policy types are supported:

      TargetTrackingScaling—Not supported for Amazon EMR

      StepScaling—Not supported for DynamoDB, Amazon Comprehend, Lambda, or Amazon Keyspaces (for Apache Cassandra).

      For more information, see Target Tracking Scaling Policies and Step Scaling Policies in the Application Auto Scaling User Guide.

      Possible values include:
      • "StepScaling"
      • "TargetTrackingScaling"
    • StepScalingPolicyConfiguration — (map)

      A step scaling policy.

      This parameter is required if you are creating a policy and the policy type is StepScaling.

      • AdjustmentType — (String)

        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.

        Possible values include:
        • "ChangeInCapacity"
        • "PercentChangeInCapacity"
        • "ExactCapacity"
      • StepAdjustments — (Array<map>)

        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.

        • MetricIntervalLowerBound — (Float)

          The lower bound for the difference between the alarm threshold and the CloudWatch metric. If the metric value is above the breach threshold, the lower bound is inclusive (the metric must be greater than or equal to the threshold plus the lower bound). Otherwise, it is exclusive (the metric must be greater than the threshold plus the lower bound). A null value indicates negative infinity.

        • MetricIntervalUpperBound — (Float)

          The upper bound for the difference between the alarm threshold and the CloudWatch metric. If the metric value is above the breach threshold, the upper bound is exclusive (the metric must be less than the threshold plus the upper bound). Otherwise, it is inclusive (the metric must be less than or equal to the threshold plus the upper bound). A null value indicates positive infinity.

          The upper bound must be greater than the lower bound.

        • ScalingAdjustmentrequired — (Integer)

          The amount by which to scale, based on the specified adjustment type. A positive value adds to the current capacity while a negative number removes from the current capacity.

      • MinAdjustmentMagnitude — (Integer)

        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.

      • Cooldown — (Integer)

        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

        • Lambda provisioned concurrency

        • Amazon Keyspaces tables

After Application Auto Scaling successfully scales out using a target tracking scaling policy, it starts to calculate the cooldown time. While the scale-out cooldown period is in effect, the capacity added by the initiating scale-out activity is calculated as part of the desired capacity for the next scale-out activity.

        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

      • ScaleInCooldown — (Integer)

        The amount of time, in seconds, after a scale-in activity completes before another scale-in activity can start.

        With the scale-in cooldown period, 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 scale-in cooldown period, Application Auto Scaling scales out the target immediately. In this case, the scale-in cooldown period 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

      • DisableScaleIn — (Boolean)

        Indicates whether scale in by the target tracking scaling policy is disabled. If the value is true, scale in is disabled and the target tracking scaling policy won't remove capacity from the scalable target. Otherwise, scale in is enabled and the target tracking scaling policy can remove capacity from the scalable target. The default value is false.

Callback (callback):

  • function(err, data) { ... }

    Called when a response from the service is returned. If a callback is not supplied, you must call AWS.Request.send() on the returned request object to initiate the request.

    Context (this):

    • (AWS.Response)

      the response object containing error, data properties, and the original request object.

    Parameters:

    • err (Error)

      the error object returned from the request. Set to null if the request is successful.

    • data (Object)

      the de-serialized data returned from the request. Set to null if a request error occurs. The data object has the following properties:

      • PolicyARN — (String)

        The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the resulting scaling policy.

      • Alarms — (Array<map>)

        The CloudWatch alarms created for the target tracking scaling policy.

        • AlarmNamerequired — (String)

          The name of the alarm.

        • AlarmARNrequired — (String)

          The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the alarm.

Returns:

  • (AWS.Request)

    a handle to the operation request for subsequent event callback registration.

putScheduledAction(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

Creates or updates a scheduled action for an Application Auto Scaling scalable target.

Each scalable target is identified by a service namespace, resource ID, and scalable dimension. A scheduled action applies to the scalable target identified by those three attributes. You cannot create a scheduled action until you have registered the resource as a scalable target.

When start and end times are specified with a recurring schedule using a cron expression or rates, they form the boundaries of when the recurring action starts and stops.

To update a scheduled action, specify the parameters that you want to change. If you don't specify start and end times, the old values are deleted.

For more information, see Scheduled Scaling in the Application Auto Scaling User Guide.

Note: If a scalable target is deregistered, the scalable target is no longer available to run scheduled actions. Any scheduled actions that were specified for the scalable target are deleted.

registerScalableTarget(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

Registers or updates a scalable target.

A scalable target is a resource that Application Auto Scaling can scale out and scale in. Scalable targets are uniquely identified by the combination of resource ID, scalable dimension, and namespace.

When you register a new scalable target, you must specify values for minimum and maximum capacity. Application Auto Scaling scaling policies will not scale capacity to values that are outside of this range.

After you register a scalable target, you do not need to register it again to use other Application Auto Scaling operations. To see which resources have been registered, use DescribeScalableTargets. You can also view the scaling policies for a service namespace by using DescribeScalableTargets. If you no longer need a scalable target, you can deregister it by using DeregisterScalableTarget.

To update a scalable target, specify the parameters that you want to change. Include the parameters that identify the scalable target: resource ID, scalable dimension, and namespace. Any parameters that you don't specify are not changed by this update request.

    • SuspendedState — (map)

      An embedded object that contains attributes and attribute values that are used to suspend and resume automatic scaling. Setting the value of an attribute to true suspends the specified scaling activities. Setting it to false (default) resumes the specified scaling activities.

      Suspension Outcomes

      • For DynamicScalingInSuspended, while a suspension is in effect, all scale-in activities that are triggered by a scaling policy are suspended.

      • For DynamicScalingOutSuspended, while a suspension is in effect, all scale-out activities that are triggered by a scaling policy are suspended.

      • For ScheduledScalingSuspended, while a suspension is in effect, all scaling activities that involve scheduled actions are suspended.

      For more information, see Suspending and Resuming Scaling in the Application Auto Scaling User Guide.

      • DynamicScalingInSuspended — (Boolean)
