PredefinedMetricSpecification - Auto Scaling
Services or capabilities described in Amazon Web Services documentation might vary by Region. To see the differences applicable to the China Regions, see Getting Started with Amazon Web Services in China.

PredefinedMetricSpecification

Represents a predefined metric for a target tracking scaling policy to use with Application Auto Scaling.

Only the AWS services that you're using send metrics to Amazon CloudWatch. To determine whether a desired metric already exists by looking up its namespace and dimension using the CloudWatch metrics dashboard in the console, follow the procedure in Building dashboards with CloudWatch in the Application Auto Scaling User Guide.

PredefinedMetricType

The metric type. The ALBRequestCountPerTarget metric type applies only to Spot Fleet requests and ECS services.

Type: String

Valid Values: DynamoDBReadCapacityUtilization | DynamoDBWriteCapacityUtilization | ALBRequestCountPerTarget | RDSReaderAverageCPUUtilization | RDSReaderAverageDatabaseConnections | EC2SpotFleetRequestAverageCPUUtilization | EC2SpotFleetRequestAverageNetworkIn | EC2SpotFleetRequestAverageNetworkOut | SageMakerVariantInvocationsPerInstance | ECSServiceAverageCPUUtilization | ECSServiceAverageMemoryUtilization | AppStreamAverageCapacityUtilization | ComprehendInferenceUtilization | LambdaProvisionedConcurrencyUtilization | CassandraReadCapacityUtilization | CassandraWriteCapacityUtilization | KafkaBrokerStorageUtilization

Required: Yes

ResourceLabel

Identifies the resource associated with the metric type. You can't specify a resource label unless the metric type is ALBRequestCountPerTarget and there is a target group attached to the Spot Fleet request or ECS service.

You create the resource label by appending the final portion of the load balancer ARN and the final portion of the target group ARN into a single value, separated by a forward slash (/). The format is app/<load-balancer-name>/<load-balancer-id>/targetgroup/<target-group-name>/<target-group-id>, where:

  • app/<load-balancer-name>/<load-balancer-id> is the final portion of the load balancer ARN

  • targetgroup/<target-group-name>/<target-group-id> is the final portion of the target group ARN.

This is an example: app/EC2Co-EcsEl-1TKLTMITMM0EO/f37c06a68c1748aa/targetgroup/EC2Co-Defau-LDNM7Q3ZH1ZN/6d4ea56ca2d6a18d.

To find the ARN for an Application Load Balancer, use the DescribeLoadBalancers API operation. To find the ARN for the target group, use the DescribeTargetGroups API operation.
