Easily create a typical automated scaling scenario in the Abiquo multicloud platform with the default scaling actions
As the typical autoscaling scenario usually requires a standard configuration, when you define a scaling group in the UI, you can now select the option to automatically create autoscaling actions.
After you save the scaling group, a new dialog will enable you to select the metrics to control the autoscaling actions.
You can open the dialog out to configure more options, including the thresholds for scaling in and scaling out.
After you add this action, you can add more actions as required. The platform will automatically create the alarms, alerts, and action plan to automatically scale in or out according to your thresholds.
To help you keep track of your scaling actions, when you update a scaling group, there is a new tab to display all the details of the autoscaling actions.
The administrator can configure the default values to suit the platform installation. See Configure default autoscaling actions
