ApplicationAutoScaling

Client

class ApplicationAutoScaling.Client

A low-level client representing Application Auto Scaling:

client = session.create_client('application-autoscaling')

These are the available methods:

can_paginate(operation_name)

Check if an operation can be paginated.

Parameters
operation_name (string) -- The operation name. This is the same name as the method name on the client. For example, if the method name is create_foo, and you'd normally invoke the operation as client.create_foo(**kwargs), if the create_foo operation can be paginated, you can use the call client.get_paginator("create_foo").
Returns
True if the operation can be paginated, False otherwise.
delete_scaling_policy(**kwargs)

Deletes the specified Application Auto Scaling scaling policy.

Deleting a policy deletes the underlying alarm action, but does not delete the CloudWatch alarm associated with the scaling policy, even if it no longer has an associated action.

To create a scaling policy or update an existing one, see PutScalingPolicy .

            • (dict) --

              Represents a step adjustment for a StepScalingPolicyConfiguration . Describes an adjustment based on the difference between the value of the aggregated CloudWatch metric and the breach threshold that you've defined for the alarm.

              For the following examples, suppose that you have an alarm with a breach threshold of 50:

              • To trigger the adjustment when the metric is greater than or equal to 50 and less than 60, specify a lower bound of 0 and an upper bound of 10.
              • To trigger the adjustment when the metric is greater than 40 and less than or equal to 50, specify a lower bound of -10 and an upper bound of 0.

              There are a few rules for the step adjustments for your step policy:

              • The ranges of your step adjustments can't overlap or have a gap.
              • At most one step adjustment can have a null lower bound. If one step adjustment has a negative lower bound, then there must be a step adjustment with a null lower bound.
              • At most one step adjustment can have a null upper bound. If one step adjustment has a positive upper bound, then there must be a step adjustment with a null upper bound.
              • The upper and lower bound can't be null in the same step adjustment.
              • 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.

              • ScalingAdjustment (integer) --

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

          • MinAdjustmentMagnitude (integer) --

            The minimum number to adjust your scalable dimension as a result of a scaling activity. If the adjustment type is PercentChangeInCapacity , the scaling policy changes the scalable dimension of the scalable target by this amount.

          • Cooldown (integer) --

            The amount of time, in seconds, after a scaling activity completes where previous trigger-related scaling activities can influence future scaling events.

            For scale out policies, while the cooldown period is in effect, the capacity that has been added by the previous scale out event that initiated the cooldown is calculated as part of the desired capacity for the next scale out. The intention is to continuously (but not excessively) scale out. For example, an alarm triggers a step scaling policy to scale out an Amazon ECS service by 2 tasks, the scaling activity completes successfully, and a cooldown period of 5 minutes starts. During the Cooldown period, if the alarm triggers the same policy again but at a more aggressive step adjustment to scale out the service by 3 tasks, the 2 tasks that were added in the previous scale out event are considered part of that capacity and only 1 additional task is added to the desired count.

            For scale in policies, the cooldown period is used to block subsequent scale in requests until it has expired. The intention is to scale in conservatively to protect your application's availability. However, if another alarm triggers a scale out policy during the cooldown period after a scale-in, Application Auto Scaling scales out your scalable target immediately.

          • MetricAggregationType (string) --

            The aggregation type for the CloudWatch metrics. Valid values are Minimum , Maximum , and Average .

        • TargetTrackingScalingPolicyConfiguration (dict) --

          A target tracking policy.

          • TargetValue (float) --

            The target value for the metric. The range is 8.515920e-109 to 1.174271e+108 (Base 10) or 2e-360 to 2e360 (Base 2).

          • PredefinedMetricSpecification (dict) --

            A predefined metric.

            • PredefinedMetricType (string) --

              The metric type.

            • Unit (string) --

              The unit of the metric.

          • ScaleOutCooldown (integer) --

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

            While the cooldown period is in effect, the capacity that has been added by the previous scale out event that initiated the cooldown is calculated as part of the desired capacity for the next scale out. The intention is to continuously (but not excessively) scale out.

          • ScaleInCooldown (integer) --

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

            The cooldown period is used to block subsequent scale in requests until it has expired. The intention is to scale in conservatively to protect your application's availability. However, if another alarm triggers a scale out policy during the cooldown period after a scale-in, Application Auto Scaling scales out your scalable target immediately.

          • DisableScaleIn (boolean) --

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

Returns

The presigned url

get_paginator(operation_name)

Create a paginator for an operation.

Parameters
operation_name (string) -- The operation name. This is the same name as the method name on the client. For example, if the method name is create_foo, and you'd normally invoke the operation as client.create_foo(**kwargs), if the create_foo operation can be paginated, you can use the call client.get_paginator("create_foo").
Raises OperationNotPageableError
Raised if the operation is not pageable. You can use the client.can_paginate method to check if an operation is pageable.
Return type
L{botocore.paginate.Paginator}
Returns
A paginator object.
get_waiter(waiter_name)
put_scaling_policy(**kwargs)

Creates or updates a 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 without first registering a scalable target using RegisterScalableTarget .

To update a policy, specify its policy name and the parameters that you want to change. Any parameters that you don't specify are not changed by this update request.

You can view the scaling policies for a service namespace using DescribeScalingPolicies . If you are no longer using a scaling policy, you can delete it using DeleteScalingPolicy .

  • PolicyType (string) --

    The policy type. If you are creating a new policy, this parameter is required. If you are updating a policy, this parameter is not required.

    For DynamoDB, only TargetTrackingScaling is supported. For any other service, only StepScaling is supported.

  • StepScalingPolicyConfiguration (dict) --

    A step scaling policy.

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

    • AdjustmentType (string) --

      The adjustment type, which specifies how the ScalingAdjustment parameter in a StepAdjustment is interpreted.

    • StepAdjustments (list) --

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

      • (dict) --

        Represents a step adjustment for a StepScalingPolicyConfiguration . Describes an adjustment based on the difference between the value of the aggregated CloudWatch metric and the breach threshold that you've defined for the alarm.

        For the following examples, suppose that you have an alarm with a breach threshold of 50:

        • To trigger the adjustment when the metric is greater than or equal to 50 and less than 60, specify a lower bound of 0 and an upper bound of 10.
        • To trigger the adjustment when the metric is greater than 40 and less than or equal to 50, specify a lower bound of -10 and an upper bound of 0.

        There are a few rules for the step adjustments for your step policy:

        • The ranges of your step adjustments can't overlap or have a gap.
        • At most one step adjustment can have a null lower bound. If one step adjustment has a negative lower bound, then there must be a step adjustment with a null lower bound.
        • At most one step adjustment can have a null upper bound. If one step adjustment has a positive upper bound, then there must be a step adjustment with a null upper bound.
        • The upper and lower bound can't be null in the same step adjustment.
        • 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.

        • ScalingAdjustment (integer) -- [REQUIRED]

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

    • MinAdjustmentMagnitude (integer) --

      The minimum number to adjust your scalable dimension as a result of a scaling activity. If the adjustment type is PercentChangeInCapacity , the scaling policy changes the scalable dimension of the scalable target by this amount.

    • Cooldown (integer) --

      The amount of time, in seconds, after a scaling activity completes where previous trigger-related scaling activities can influence future scaling events.

      For scale out policies, while the cooldown period is in effect, the capacity that has been added by the previous scale out event that initiated the cooldown is calculated as part of the desired capacity for the next scale out. The intention is to continuously (but not excessively) scale out. For example, an alarm triggers a step scaling policy to scale out an Amazon ECS service by 2 tasks, the scaling activity completes successfully, and a cooldown period of 5 minutes starts. During the Cooldown period, if the alarm triggers the same policy again but at a more aggressive step adjustment to scale out the service by 3 tasks, the 2 tasks that were added in the previous scale out event are considered part of that capacity and only 1 additional task is added to the desired count.

      For scale in policies, the cooldown period is used to block subsequent scale in requests until it has expired. The intention is to scale in conservatively to protect your application's availability. However, if another alarm triggers a scale out policy during the cooldown period after a scale-in, Application Auto Scaling scales out your scalable target immediately.

    • MetricAggregationType (string) --

      The aggregation type for the CloudWatch metrics. Valid values are Minimum , Maximum , and Average .

  • TargetTrackingScalingPolicyConfiguration (dict) --

    A target tracking policy.

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

    • TargetValue (float) -- [REQUIRED]

      The target value for the metric. The range is 8.515920e-109 to 1.174271e+108 (Base 10) or 2e-360 to 2e360 (Base 2).

    • PredefinedMetricSpecification (dict) --

      A predefined metric.

      • PredefinedMetricType (string) -- [REQUIRED]

        The metric type.

      • ResourceLabel (string) --

        Reserved for future use.

          • Name (string) -- [REQUIRED]

            The name of the dimension.

          • Value (string) -- [REQUIRED]

            The value of the dimension.

      • Statistic (string) -- [REQUIRED]

        The statistic of the metric.

      • Unit (string) --

        The unit of the metric.

    • ScaleOutCooldown (integer) --

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

      While the cooldown period is in effect, the capacity that has been added by the previous scale out event that initiated the cooldown is calculated as part of the desired capacity for the next scale out. The intention is to continuously (but not excessively) scale out.

    • ScaleInCooldown (integer) --

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

      The cooldown period is used to block subsequent scale in requests until it has expired. The intention is to scale in conservatively to protect your application's availability. However, if another alarm triggers a scale out policy during the cooldown period after a scale-in, Application Auto Scaling scales out your scalable target immediately.

    • DisableScaleIn (boolean) --

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

          • StepAdjustments (list) --

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

            • (dict) --

              Represents a step adjustment for a StepScalingPolicyConfiguration . Describes an adjustment based on the difference between the value of the aggregated CloudWatch metric and the breach threshold that you've defined for the alarm.

              For the following examples, suppose that you have an alarm with a breach threshold of 50:

              • To trigger the adjustment when the metric is greater than or equal to 50 and less than 60, specify a lower bound of 0 and an upper bound of 10.
              • To trigger the adjustment when the metric is greater than 40 and less than or equal to 50, specify a lower bound of -10 and an upper bound of 0.

              There are a few rules for the step adjustments for your step policy:

              • The ranges of your step adjustments can't overlap or have a gap.
              • At most one step adjustment can have a null lower bound. If one step adjustment has a negative lower bound, then there must be a step adjustment with a null lower bound.
              • At most one step adjustment can have a null upper bound. If one step adjustment has a positive upper bound, then there must be a step adjustment with a null upper bound.
              • The upper and lower bound can't be null in the same step adjustment.
              • 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.

              • ScalingAdjustment (integer) --

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

          • MinAdjustmentMagnitude (integer) --

            The minimum number to adjust your scalable dimension as a result of a scaling activity. If the adjustment type is PercentChangeInCapacity , the scaling policy changes the scalable dimension of the scalable target by this amount.

          • Cooldown (integer) --

            The amount of time, in seconds, after a scaling activity completes where previous trigger-related scaling activities can influence future scaling events.

            For scale out policies, while the cooldown period is in effect, the capacity that has been added by the previous scale out event that initiated the cooldown is calculated as part of the desired capacity for the next scale out. The intention is to continuously (but not excessively) scale out. For example, an alarm triggers a step scaling policy to scale out an Amazon ECS service by 2 tasks, the scaling activity completes successfully, and a cooldown period of 5 minutes starts. During the Cooldown period, if the alarm triggers the same policy again but at a more aggressive step adjustment to scale out the service by 3 tasks, the 2 tasks that were added in the previous scale out event are considered part of that capacity and only 1 additional task is added to the desired count.

            For scale in policies, the cooldown period is used to block subsequent scale in requests until it has expired. The intention is to scale in conservatively to protect your application's availability. However, if another alarm triggers a scale out policy during the cooldown period after a scale-in, Application Auto Scaling scales out your scalable target immediately.

          • MetricAggregationType (string) --

            The aggregation type for the CloudWatch metrics. Valid values are Minimum , Maximum , and Average .

        • TargetTrackingScalingPolicyConfiguration (dict) --

          A target tracking policy.

          • TargetValue (float) --

            The target value for the metric. The range is 8.515920e-109 to 1.174271e+108 (Base 10) or 2e-360 to 2e360 (Base 2).

          • PredefinedMetricSpecification (dict) --

            • PredefinedMetricType (string) --

              The metric type.

          • ScaleOutCooldown (integer) --

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

            While the cooldown period is in effect, the capacity that has been added by the previous scale out event that initiated the cooldown is calculated as part of the desired capacity for the next scale out. The intention is to continuously (but not excessively) scale out.

          • ScaleInCooldown (integer) --

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

            The cooldown period is used to block subsequent scale in requests until it has expired. The intention is to scale in conservatively to protect your application's availability. However, if another alarm triggers a scale out policy during the cooldown period after a scale-in, Application Auto Scaling scales out your scalable target immediately.

          • DisableScaleIn (boolean) --

            Indicates whether scale in by the target tracking policy is disabled. If the value is true , scale in is disabled and the target tracking policy won't remove capacity from the scalable resource.
