AutoScaling

Client

class AutoScaling.Client

A low-level client representing Auto Scaling

Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling is designed to automatically launch or terminate EC2 instances based on user-defined scaling policies, scheduled actions, and health checks.

For more information about Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling, see the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide . For information about granting IAM users required permissions for calls to Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling, see Granting IAM users required permissions for Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling resources in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling API Reference .

client = session.create_client('autoscaling')

These are the available methods:

attach_instances(**kwargs)

Attaches one or more EC2 instances to the specified Auto Scaling group.

When you attach instances, Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling increases the desired capacity of the group by the number of instances being attached. If the number of instances being attached plus the desired capacity of the group exceeds the maximum size of the group, the operation fails.

If there is a Classic Load Balancer attached to your Auto Scaling group, the instances are also registered with the load balancer. If there are target groups attached to your Auto Scaling group, the instances are also registered with the target groups.

For more information, see Attach EC2 instances to your Auto Scaling group in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide .

    ],
)

print(response)

Expected Output:

{
    'ResponseMetadata': {
        '...': '...',
    },
}
attach_load_balancer_target_groups(**kwargs)

Attaches one or more target groups to the specified Auto Scaling group.

This operation is used with the following load balancer types:

  • Application Load Balancer - Operates at the application layer (layer 7) and supports HTTP and HTTPS.
  • Network Load Balancer - Operates at the transport layer (layer 4) and supports TCP, TLS, and UDP.
  • Gateway Load Balancer - Operates at the network layer (layer 3).

To describe the target groups for an Auto Scaling group, call the DescribeLoadBalancerTargetGroups API. To detach the target group from the Auto Scaling group, call the DetachLoadBalancerTargetGroups API.

        },
    ]
)
Parameters
  • AutoScalingGroupName (string) --

    [REQUIRED]

    The name of the Auto Scaling group.

  • ScheduledUpdateGroupActions (list) --

    [REQUIRED]

    One or more scheduled actions. The maximum number allowed is 50.

    • (dict) --

        If you specify Recurrence and StartTime , Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling performs the action at this time, and then performs the action based on the specified recurrence.

        If you try to schedule the action in the past, Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling returns an error message.

      • EndTime (datetime) --

        The date and time for the recurring schedule to end, in UTC.

      • Recurrence (string) --

        The recurring schedule for the action, in Unix cron syntax format. This format consists of five fields separated by white spaces: [Minute] [Hour] [Day_of_Month] [Month_of_Year] [Day_of_Week]. The value must be in quotes (for example, "30 0 1 1,6,12 *" ). For more information about this format, see Crontab .

        When StartTime and EndTime are specified with Recurrence , they form the boundaries of when the recurring action starts and stops.

        Cron expressions use Universal Coordinated Time (UTC) by default.

      • MinSize (integer) --

        The minimum size of the Auto Scaling group.

      • MaxSize (integer) --

        The maximum size of the Auto Scaling group.

        The desired capacity is the initial capacity of the Auto Scaling group after the scheduled action runs and the capacity it attempts to maintain.

      • TimeZone (string) --

        Specifies the time zone for a cron expression. If a time zone is not provided, UTC is used by default.

        Valid values are the canonical names of the IANA time zones, derived from the IANA Time Zone Database (such as Etc/GMT+9 or Pacific/Tahiti ). For more information, see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_tz_database_time_zones .

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.
cancel_instance_refresh(**kwargs)

Cancels an instance refresh operation in progress. Cancellation does not roll back any replacements that have already been completed, but it prevents new replacements from being started.

This operation is part of the instance refresh feature in Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling, which helps you update instances in your Auto Scaling group after you make configuration changes.

Request Syntax

response = client.cancel_instance_refresh(
    AutoScalingGroupName='string'
)
Parameters
AutoScalingGroupName (string) --

[REQUIRED]

The name of the Auto Scaling group.

    'ResponseMetadata': {
        '...': '...',
    },
}
complete_lifecycle_action(**kwargs)

Completes the lifecycle action for the specified token or instance with the specified result.

This step is a part of the procedure for adding a lifecycle hook to an Auto Scaling group:

  • (Optional) Create a Lambda function and a rule that allows CloudWatch Events to invoke your Lambda function when Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling launches or terminates instances.
  • (Optional) Create a notification target and an IAM role. The target can be either an Amazon SQS queue or an Amazon SNS topic. The role allows Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling to publish lifecycle notifications to the target.
  • Create the lifecycle hook. Specify whether the hook is used when the instances launch or terminate.
  • If you need more time, record the lifecycle action heartbeat to keep the instance in a pending state.
  • If you finish before the timeout period ends, complete the lifecycle action.

For more information, see Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling lifecycle hooks in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide .

See also: AWS API Documentation

Request Syntax

response = client.complete_lifecycle_action(
    LifecycleHookName='string',
    AutoScalingGroupName='string',
    LifecycleActionToken='string',

        '...': '...',
    },
}
create_auto_scaling_group(**kwargs)
We strongly recommend using a launch template when calling this operation to ensure full functionality for Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling and Amazon EC2.

Creates an Auto Scaling group with the specified name and attributes.

If you exceed your maximum limit of Auto Scaling groups, the call fails. To query this limit, call the DescribeAccountLimits API. For information about updating this limit, see Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling service quotas in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide .

For introductory exercises for creating an Auto Scaling group, see Getting started with Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling and Tutorial: Set up a scaled and load-balanced application in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide . For more information, see Auto Scaling groups in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide .

Every Auto Scaling group has three size parameters (DesiredCapacity , MaxSize , and MinSize ). Usually, you set these sizes based on a specific number of instances. However, if you configure a mixed instances policy that defines weights for the instance types, you must specify these sizes with the same units that you use for weighting instances.

If the value is $Default , Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling selects the default version of the launch template when launching instances. The default value is $Default .

  • MixedInstancesPolicy (dict) --

    An embedded object that specifies a mixed instances policy. The required properties must be specified. If optional properties are unspecified, their default values are used.

    The policy includes properties that not only define the distribution of On-Demand Instances and Spot Instances, the maximum price to pay for Spot Instances, and how the Auto Scaling group allocates instance types to fulfill On-Demand and Spot capacities, but also the properties that specify the instance configuration information—the launch template and instance types. The policy can also include a weight for each instance type and different launch templates for individual instance types. For more information, see Auto Scaling groups with multiple instance types and purchase options in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide .

    • LaunchTemplate (dict) --

      Specifies the launch template to use and optionally the instance types (overrides) that are used to provision EC2 instances to fulfill On-Demand and Spot capacities. Required when creating a mixed instances policy.

      • LaunchTemplateSpecification (dict) --

        The launch template to use.

        • LaunchTemplateId (string) --

New launch template versions can be created using the Amazon EC2 CreateLaunchTemplateVersion API. If the value is $Latest , Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling selects the latest version of the launch template when launching instances. If the value is $Default , Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling selects the default version of the launch template when launching instances. The default value is $Default .

      • Overrides (list) --

        Any properties that you specify override the same properties in the launch template. If not provided, Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling uses the instance type specified in the launch template when it launches an instance.

        • (dict) --

          Describes an override for a launch template. The maximum number of instance types that can be associated with an Auto Scaling group is 40. The maximum number of distinct launch templates you can define for an Auto Scaling group is 20. For more information about configuring overrides, see Configuring overrides in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide .

          • InstanceType (string) --

            The instance type, such as m3.xlarge . You must use an instance type that is supported in your requested Region and Availability Zones. For more information, see Instance types in the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud User Guide .

          • WeightedCapacity (string) --

            The number of capacity units provided by the specified instance type in terms of virtual CPUs, memory, storage, throughput, or other relative performance characteristic. When a Spot or On-Demand Instance is provisioned, the capacity units count toward the desired capacity. Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling provisions instances until the desired capacity is totally fulfilled, even if this results in an overage. For example, if there are 2 units remaining to fulfill capacity, and Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling can only provision an instance with a WeightedCapacity of 5 units, the instance is provisioned, and the desired capacity is exceeded by 3 units. For more information, see Instance weighting for Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide . Value must be in the range of 1 to 999.

          • LaunchTemplateSpecification (dict) --

            Provides the launch template to be used when launching the instance type. For example, some instance types might require a launch template with a different AMI. If not provided, Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling uses the launch template that's defined for your mixed instances policy. For more information, see Specifying a different launch template for an instance type in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide .

            • LaunchTemplateId (string) --

              The ID of the launch template. To get the template ID, use the Amazon EC2 DescribeLaunchTemplates API operation. New launch templates can be created using the Amazon EC2 CreateLaunchTemplate API.

              Conditional: You must specify either a LaunchTemplateId or a LaunchTemplateName .

            • LaunchTemplateName (string) --

              The name of the launch template. To get the template name, use the Amazon EC2 DescribeLaunchTemplates API operation. New launch templates can be created using the Amazon EC2 CreateLaunchTemplate API.

              Conditional: You must specify either a LaunchTemplateId or a LaunchTemplateName .

            • Version (string) --

              The version number, $Latest , or $Default . To get the version number, use the Amazon EC2 DescribeLaunchTemplateVersions API operation. New launch template versions can be created using the Amazon EC2 CreateLaunchTemplateVersion API. If the value is $Latest , Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling selects the latest version of the launch template when launching instances. If the value is $Default , Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling selects the default version of the launch template when launching instances. The default value is $Default .

    • InstancesDistribution (dict) --

      Specifies the instances distribution. If not provided, the value for each property in InstancesDistribution uses a default value.

      • OnDemandAllocationStrategy (string) --

        Indicates how to allocate instance types to fulfill On-Demand capacity. The only valid value is prioritized , which is also the default value. This strategy uses the order of instance types in the LaunchTemplateOverrides to define the launch priority of each instance type. The first instance type in the array is prioritized higher than the last. If all your On-Demand capacity cannot be fulfilled using your highest priority instance, then the Auto Scaling groups launches the remaining capacity using the second priority instance type, and so on.

      • OnDemandBaseCapacity (integer) --

        The minimum amount of the Auto Scaling group's capacity that must be fulfilled by On-Demand Instances. This base portion is provisioned first as your group scales. Defaults to 0 if not specified. If you specify weights for the instance types in the overrides, set the value of OnDemandBaseCapacity in terms of the number of capacity units, and not the number of instances.

      • OnDemandPercentageAboveBaseCapacity (integer) --

        Controls the percentages of On-Demand Instances and Spot Instances for your additional capacity beyond OnDemandBaseCapacity . Expressed as a number (for example, 20 specifies 20% On-Demand Instances, 80% Spot Instances). Defaults to 100 if not specified. If set to 100, only On-Demand Instances are provisioned.

      • SpotAllocationStrategy (string) --

        Indicates how to allocate instances across Spot Instance pools.

        If the allocation strategy is lowest-price , the Auto Scaling group launches instances using the Spot pools with the lowest price, and evenly allocates your instances across the number of Spot pools that you specify. Defaults to lowest-price if not specified.

        If the allocation strategy is capacity-optimized (recommended), the Auto Scaling group launches instances using Spot pools that are optimally chosen based on the available Spot capacity. Alternatively, you can use capacity-optimized-prioritized and set the order of instance types in the list of launch template overrides from highest to lowest priority (from first to last in the list). Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling honors the instance type priorities on a best-effort basis but optimizes for capacity first.

      • SpotInstancePools (integer) --

        The number of Spot Instance pools across which to allocate your Spot Instances. The Spot pools are determined from the different instance types in the overrides. Valid only when the Spot allocation strategy is lowest-price . Value must be in the range of 1 to 20. Defaults to 2 if not specified.

      • SpotMaxPrice (string) --

        The maximum price per unit hour that you are willing to pay for a Spot Instance. If you leave the value at its default (empty), Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling uses the On-Demand price as the maximum Spot price. To remove a value that you previously set, include the property but specify an empty string ("") for the value.

  • InstanceId (string) -- The ID of the instance used to base the launch configuration on. If specified, Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling uses the configuration values from the specified instance to create a new launch configuration. To get the instance ID, use the Amazon EC2 DescribeInstances API operation. For more information, see Creating an Auto Scaling group using an EC2 instance in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide .
  • MinSize (integer) --

    [REQUIRED]

    The minimum size of the group.

  • MaxSize (integer) --

    [REQUIRED]

    The maximum size of the group.

    Note

    With a mixed instances policy that uses instance weighting, Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling may need to go above MaxSize to meet your capacity requirements. In this event, Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling will never go above MaxSize by more than your largest instance weight (weights that define how many units each instance contributes to the desired capacity of the group).

  • DesiredCapacity (integer) -- The desired capacity is the initial capacity of the Auto Scaling group at the time of its creation and the capacity it attempts to maintain. It can scale beyond this capacity if you configure auto scaling. This number must be greater than or equal to the minimum size of the group and less than or equal to the maximum size of the group. If you do not specify a desired capacity, the default is the minimum size of the group.
  • DefaultCooldown (integer) -- The amount of time, in seconds, after a scaling activity completes before another scaling activity can start. The default value is 300 . This setting applies when using simple scaling policies, but not when using other scaling policies or scheduled scaling. For more information, see Scaling cooldowns for Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide .
  • AvailabilityZones (list) --

    A list of Availability Zones where instances in the Auto Scaling group can be created. This parameter is optional if you specify one or more subnets for VPCZoneIdentifier .

    Conditional: If your account supports EC2-Classic and VPC, this parameter is required to launch instances into EC2-Classic.

    • (string) --
  • LoadBalancerNames (list) --

    A list of Classic Load Balancers associated with this Auto Scaling group. For Application Load Balancers, Network Load Balancers, and Gateway Load Balancers, specify the TargetGroupARNs property instead.

    • (string) --
  • TargetGroupARNs (list) --

    The Amazon Resource Names (ARN) of the target groups to associate with the Auto Scaling group. Instances are registered as targets in a target group, and traffic is routed to the target group. For more information, see Elastic Load Balancing and Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide .

    • (string) --
  • HealthCheckType (string) -- The service to use for the health checks. The valid values are EC2 (default) and ELB . If you configure an Auto Scaling group to use load balancer (ELB) health checks, it considers the instance unhealthy if it fails either the EC2 status checks or the load balancer health checks. For more information, see Health checks for Auto Scaling instances in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide .
  • HealthCheckGracePeriod (integer) --

    The amount of time, in seconds, that Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling waits before checking the health status of an EC2 instance that has come into service. During this time, any health check failures for the instance are ignored. The default value is 0 . For more information, see Health check grace period in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide .

    Conditional: Required if you are adding an ELB health check.

  • PlacementGroup (string) -- The name of an existing placement group into which to launch your instances, if any. A placement group is a logical grouping of instances within a single Availability Zone. You cannot specify multiple Availability Zones and a placement group. For more information, see Placement Groups in the Amazon EC2 User Guide for Linux Instances .
  • VPCZoneIdentifier (string) --

    A comma-separated list of subnet IDs for a virtual private cloud (VPC) where instances in the Auto Scaling group can be created. If you specify VPCZoneIdentifier with AvailabilityZones , the subnets that you specify for this parameter must reside in those Availability Zones.

    Conditional: If your account supports EC2-Classic and VPC, this parameter is required to launch instances into a VPC.

  • TerminationPolicies (list) --

    A policy or a list of policies that are used to select the instance to terminate. These policies are executed in the order that you list them. For more information, see Controlling which Auto Scaling instances terminate during scale in in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide .

    • (string) --
  • NewInstancesProtectedFromScaleIn (boolean) -- Indicates whether newly launched instances are protected from termination by Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling when scaling in. For more information about preventing instances from terminating on scale in, see Instance scale-in protection in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide .
  • CapacityRebalance (boolean) -- Indicates whether Capacity Rebalancing is enabled. Otherwise, Capacity Rebalancing is disabled. When you turn on Capacity Rebalancing, Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling attempts to launch a Spot Instance whenever Amazon EC2 notifies that a Spot Instance is at an elevated risk of interruption. After launching a new instance, it then terminates an old instance. For more information, see Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling Capacity Rebalancing in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide .
  • LifecycleHookSpecificationList (list) --

    One or more lifecycle hooks for the group, which specify actions to perform when Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling launches or terminates instances.

    • (dict) --

      Describes information used to specify a lifecycle hook for an Auto Scaling group.

      A lifecycle hook tells Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling to perform an action on an instance when the instance launches (before it is put into service) or as the instance terminates (before it is fully terminated).

      This step is a part of the procedure for creating a lifecycle hook for an Auto Scaling group:

      • (Optional) Create a Lambda function and a rule that allows CloudWatch Events to invoke your Lambda function when Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling launches or terminates instances.
      • (Optional) Create a notification target and an IAM role. The target can be either an Amazon SQS queue or an Amazon SNS topic. The role allows Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling to publish lifecycle notifications to the target.
      • Create the lifecycle hook. Specify whether the hook is used when the instances launch or terminate.
      • If you need more time, record the lifecycle action heartbeat to keep the instance in a pending state.
      • If you finish before the timeout period ends, complete the lifecycle action.

      For more information, see Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling lifecycle hooks in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide .

      • LifecycleHookName (string) -- [REQUIRED]

        The name of the lifecycle hook.

      • LifecycleTransition (string) -- [REQUIRED]

        The state of the EC2 instance to which you want to attach the lifecycle hook. The valid values are:

        • autoscaling:EC2_INSTANCE_LAUNCHING
        • autoscaling:EC2_INSTANCE_TERMINATING
      • NotificationMetadata (string) --

        Additional information that you want to include any time Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling sends a message to the notification target.

      • HeartbeatTimeout (integer) --

        The maximum time, in seconds, that can elapse before the lifecycle hook times out.

        If the lifecycle hook times out, Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling performs the action that you specified in the DefaultResult parameter. You can prevent the lifecycle hook from timing out by calling RecordLifecycleActionHeartbeat .

      • DefaultResult (string) --

        Defines the action the Auto Scaling group should take when the lifecycle hook timeout elapses or if an unexpected failure occurs. The valid values are CONTINUE and ABANDON . The default value is ABANDON .

      • NotificationTargetARN (string) --

        The ARN of the target that Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling sends notifications to when an instance is in the transition state for the lifecycle hook. The notification target can be either an SQS queue or an SNS topic.

      • RoleARN (string) --

        The ARN of the IAM role that allows the Auto Scaling group to publish to the specified notification target, for example, an Amazon SNS topic or an Amazon SQS queue.

  • Tags (list) --

    One or more tags. You can tag your Auto Scaling group and propagate the tags to the Amazon EC2 instances it launches. Tags are not propagated to Amazon EBS volumes. To add tags to Amazon EBS volumes, specify the tags in a launch template but use caution. If the launch template specifies an instance tag with a key that is also specified for the Auto Scaling group, Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling overrides the value of that instance tag with the value specified by the Auto Scaling group. For more information, see Tagging Auto Scaling groups and instances in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide .

    • (dict) --

      Describes a tag for an Auto Scaling group.

      • ResourceId (string) --

        The name of the Auto Scaling group.

      • ResourceType (string) --

        The type of resource. The only supported value is auto-scaling-group .

      • Key (string) -- [REQUIRED]

        The tag key.

      • Value (string) --

        The tag value.

      • PropagateAtLaunch (boolean) --

        Determines whether the tag is added to new instances as they are launched in the group.

  • ServiceLinkedRoleARN (string) -- The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the service-linked role that the Auto Scaling group uses to call other Amazon Web Services on your behalf. By default, Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling uses a service-linked role named AWSServiceRoleForAutoScaling, which it creates if it does not exist. For more information, see Service-linked roles in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide .
  • MaxInstanceLifetime (integer) -- The maximum amount of time, in seconds, that an instance can be in service. The default is null. If specified, the value must be either 0 or a number equal to or greater than 86,400 seconds (1 day). For more information, see Replacing Auto Scaling instances based on maximum instance lifetime in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide .

        The device name exposed to the EC2 instance (for example, /dev/sdh or xvdh ). For more information, see Device Naming on Linux Instances in the Amazon EC2 User Guide for Linux Instances .

      • Ebs (dict) --

        Parameters used to automatically set up EBS volumes when an instance is launched.

        You can specify either VirtualName or Ebs , but not both.

        • SnapshotId (string) --

          The snapshot ID of the volume to use.

          You must specify either a VolumeSize or a SnapshotId .

        • VolumeSize (integer) --

          The volume size, in GiBs. The following are the supported volumes sizes for each volume type:

          • gp2 and gp3 : 1-16,384
          • io1 : 4-16,384
          • st1 and sc1 : 125-16,384
          • standard : 1-1,024

          You must specify either a SnapshotId or a VolumeSize . If you specify both SnapshotId and VolumeSize , the volume size must be equal or greater than the size of the snapshot.

        • VolumeType (string) --

          The volume type. For more information, see Amazon EBS Volume Types in the Amazon EC2 User Guide for Linux Instances .

          Valid Values: standard | io1 | gp2 | st1 | sc1 | gp3

        • DeleteOnTermination (boolean) --

          Indicates whether the volume is deleted on instance termination. For Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling, the default value is true .

        • Iops (integer) --

          The number of input/output (I/O) operations per second (IOPS) to provision for the volume. For gp3 and io1 volumes, this represents the number of IOPS that are provisioned for the volume. For gp2 volumes, this represents the baseline performance of the volume and the rate at which the volume accumulates I/O credits for bursting.

          The following are the supported values for each volume type:

          • gp3 : 3,000-16,000 IOPS
          • io1 : 100-64,000 IOPS

          For io1 volumes, we guarantee 64,000 IOPS only for Instances built on the Nitro System . Other instance families guarantee performance up to 32,000 IOPS.

          Iops is supported when the volume type is gp3 or io1 and required only when the volume type is io1 . (Not used with standard , gp2 , st1 , or sc1 volumes.)
        • Encrypted (boolean) --

          Specifies whether the volume should be encrypted. Encrypted EBS volumes can only be attached to instances that support Amazon EBS encryption. For more information, see Supported Instance Types . If your AMI uses encrypted volumes, you can also only launch it on supported instance types.

          Note

          If you are creating a volume from a snapshot, you cannot specify an encryption value. Volumes that are created from encrypted snapshots are automatically encrypted, and volumes that are created from unencrypted snapshots are automatically unencrypted. By default, encrypted snapshots use the AWS managed CMK that is used for EBS encryption, but you can specify a custom CMK when you create the snapshot. The ability to encrypt a snapshot during copying also allows you to apply a new CMK to an already-encrypted snapshot. Volumes restored from the resulting copy are only accessible using the new CMK.

          Enabling encryption by default results in all EBS volumes being encrypted with the AWS managed CMK or a customer managed CMK, whether or not the snapshot was encrypted.

          For more information, see Using Encryption with EBS-Backed AMIs in the Amazon EC2 User Guide for Linux Instances and Required CMK key policy for use with encrypted volumes in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide .

        • Throughput (integer) --

          The throughput (MiBps) to provision for a gp3 volume.

      • NoDevice (boolean) --

        Setting this value to true suppresses the specified device included in the block device mapping of the AMI.

        If NoDevice is true for the root device, instances might fail the EC2 health check. In that case, Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling launches replacement instances.

        If you specify NoDevice , you cannot specify Ebs .

  • InstanceMonitoring (dict) --

    Controls whether instances in this group are launched with detailed (true ) or basic (false ) monitoring.

    The default value is true (enabled).

    Warning

    When detailed monitoring is enabled, Amazon CloudWatch generates metrics every minute and your account is charged a fee. When you disable detailed monitoring, CloudWatch generates metrics every 5 minutes. For more information, see Configure Monitoring for Auto Scaling Instances in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide .

    • Enabled (boolean) --

      If true , detailed monitoring is enabled. Otherwise, basic monitoring is enabled.

  • SpotPrice (string) --

    The maximum hourly price to be paid for any Spot Instance launched to fulfill the request. Spot Instances are launched when the price you specify exceeds the current Spot price. For more information, see Requesting Spot Instances in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide .

    Note

    When you change your maximum price by creating a new launch configuration, running instances will continue to run as long as the maximum price for those running instances is higher than the current Spot price.

  • IamInstanceProfile (string) --

    The name or the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the instance profile associated with the IAM role for the instance. The instance profile contains the IAM role.

    For more information, see IAM role for applications that run on Amazon EC2 instances in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide .

  • EbsOptimized (boolean) --

    Specifies whether the launch configuration is optimized for EBS I/O (true ) or not (false ). The optimization provides dedicated throughput to Amazon EBS and an optimized configuration stack to provide optimal I/O performance. This optimization is not available with all instance types. Additional fees are incurred when you enable EBS optimization for an instance type that is not EBS-optimized by default. For more information, see Amazon EBS-Optimized Instances in the Amazon EC2 User Guide for Linux Instances .

    The default value is false .

  • AssociatePublicIpAddress (boolean) --

    For Auto Scaling groups that are running in a virtual private cloud (VPC), specifies whether to assign a public IP address to the group's instances. If you specify true , each instance in the Auto Scaling group receives a unique public IP address. For more information, see Launching Auto Scaling instances in a VPC in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide .

    If you specify this parameter, you must specify at least one subnet for VPCZoneIdentifier when you create your group.

    Note

    If the instance is launched into a default subnet, the default is to assign a public IP address, unless you disabled the option to assign a public IP address on the subnet. If the instance is launched into a nondefault subnet, the default is not to assign a public IP address, unless you enabled the option to assign a public IP address on the subnet.

  • PlacementTenancy (string) --

    The tenancy of the instance. An instance with dedicated tenancy runs on isolated, single-tenant hardware and can only be launched into a VPC.

    To launch dedicated instances into a shared tenancy VPC (a VPC with the instance placement tenancy attribute set to default ), you must set the value of this parameter to dedicated .

    If you specify PlacementTenancy , you must specify at least one subnet for VPCZoneIdentifier when you create your group.

    For more information, see Configuring instance tenancy with Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide .

    Valid Values: default | dedicated

  • MetadataOptions (dict) --

    The metadata options for the instances. For more information, see Configuring the Instance Metadata Options in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide .

    • HttpTokens (string) --

      The state of token usage for your instance metadata requests. If the parameter is not specified in the request, the default state is optional .

      If the state is optional , you can choose to retrieve instance metadata with or without a signed token header on your request. If you retrieve the IAM role credentials without a token, the version 1.0 role credentials are returned. If you retrieve the IAM role credentials using a valid signed token, the version 2.0 role credentials are returned.

      If the state is required , you must send a signed token header with any instance metadata retrieval requests. In this state, retrieving the IAM role credentials always returns the version 2.0 credentials; the version 1.0 credentials are not available.

    • HttpPutResponseHopLimit (integer) --

      The desired HTTP PUT response hop limit for instance metadata requests. The larger the number, the further instance metadata requests can travel.

      Default: 1

    • HttpEndpoint (string) --

      This parameter enables or disables the HTTP metadata endpoint on your instances. If the parameter is not specified, the default state is enabled .

      Note

      If you specify a value of disabled , you will not be able to access your instance metadata.

Returns

None

delete_auto_scaling_group(**kwargs)

Deletes the specified Auto Scaling group.

If the group has instances or scaling activities in progress, you must specify the option to force the deletion in order for it to succeed.

If the group has policies, deleting the group deletes the policies, the underlying alarm actions, and any alarm that no longer has an associated action.

To remove instances from the Auto Scaling group before deleting it, call the DetachInstances API with the list of instances and the option to decrement the desired capacity. This ensures that Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling does not launch replacement instances.

To terminate all instances before deleting the Auto Scaling group, call the UpdateAutoScalingGroup API and set the minimum size and desired capacity of the Auto Scaling group to zero.

            • Overrides (list) --

              Any properties that you specify override the same properties in the launch template. If not provided, Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling uses the instance type specified in the launch template when it launches an instance.

              • (dict) --

                Describes an override for a launch template. The maximum number of instance types that can be associated with an Auto Scaling group is 40. The maximum number of distinct launch templates you can define for an Auto Scaling group is 20. For more information about configuring overrides, see Configuring overrides in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide .

                • InstanceType (string) --

                  The instance type, such as m3.xlarge . You must use an instance type that is supported in your requested Region and Availability Zones. For more information, see Instance types in the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud User Guide .

                • WeightedCapacity (string) --

                  The number of capacity units provided by the specified instance type in terms of virtual CPUs, memory, storage, throughput, or other relative performance characteristic. When a Spot or On-Demand Instance is provisioned, the capacity units count toward the desired capacity. Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling provisions instances until the desired capacity is totally fulfilled, even if this results in an overage. For example, if there are 2 units remaining to fulfill capacity, and Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling can only provision an instance with a WeightedCapacity of 5 units, the instance is provisioned, and the desired capacity is exceeded by 3 units. For more information, see Instance weighting for Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide . Value must be in the range of 1 to 999.

                • LaunchTemplateSpecification (dict) --

                  Provides the launch template to be used when launching the instance type. For example, some instance types might require a launch template with a different AMI. If not provided, Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling uses the launch template that's defined for your mixed instances policy. For more information, see Specifying a different launch template for an instance type in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide .

                  • LaunchTemplateId (string) --

                    The ID of the launch template. To get the template ID, use the Amazon EC2 DescribeLaunchTemplates API operation. New launch templates can be created using the Amazon EC2 CreateLaunchTemplate API.

                    Conditional: You must specify either a LaunchTemplateId or a LaunchTemplateName .

                  • LaunchTemplateName (string) --

                    The name of the launch template. To get the template name, use the Amazon EC2 DescribeLaunchTemplates API operation. New launch templates can be created using the Amazon EC2 CreateLaunchTemplate API.

                    Conditional: You must specify either a LaunchTemplateId or a LaunchTemplateName .

                  • Version (string) --

                    The version number, $Latest , or $Default . To get the version number, use the Amazon EC2 DescribeLaunchTemplateVersions API operation. New launch template versions can be created using the Amazon EC2 CreateLaunchTemplateVersion API. If the value is $Latest , Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling selects the latest version of the launch template when launching instances. If the value is $Default , Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling selects the default version of the launch template when launching instances. The default value is $Default .

          • InstancesDistribution (dict) --

            Specifies the instances distribution. If not provided, the value for each property in InstancesDistribution uses a default value.

            • OnDemandAllocationStrategy (string) --

              Indicates how to allocate instance types to fulfill On-Demand capacity. The only valid value is prioritized , which is also the default value. This strategy uses the order of instance types in the LaunchTemplateOverrides to define the launch priority of each instance type. The first instance type in the array is prioritized higher than the last. If all your On-Demand capacity cannot be fulfilled using your highest priority instance, then the Auto Scaling groups launches the remaining capacity using the second priority instance type, and so on.

            • OnDemandBaseCapacity (integer) --

              The minimum amount of the Auto Scaling group's capacity that must be fulfilled by On-Demand Instances. This base portion is provisioned first as your group scales. Defaults to 0 if not specified. If you specify weights for the instance types in the overrides, set the value of OnDemandBaseCapacity in terms of the number of capacity units, and not the number of instances.

            • OnDemandPercentageAboveBaseCapacity (integer) --

              Controls the percentages of On-Demand Instances and Spot Instances for your additional capacity beyond OnDemandBaseCapacity . Expressed as a number (for example, 20 specifies 20% On-Demand Instances, 80% Spot Instances). Defaults to 100 if not specified. If set to 100, only On-Demand Instances are provisioned.

            • SpotAllocationStrategy (string) --

              Indicates how to allocate instances across Spot Instance pools.

              If the allocation strategy is lowest-price , the Auto Scaling group launches instances using the Spot pools with the lowest price, and evenly allocates your instances across the number of Spot pools that you specify. Defaults to lowest-price if not specified.

              If the allocation strategy is capacity-optimized (recommended), the Auto Scaling group launches instances using Spot pools that are optimally chosen based on the available Spot capacity. Alternatively, you can use capacity-optimized-prioritized and set the order of instance types in the list of launch template overrides from highest to lowest priority (from first to last in the list). Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling honors the instance type priorities on a best-effort basis but optimizes for capacity first.

            • SpotInstancePools (integer) --

              The number of Spot Instance pools across which to allocate your Spot Instances. The Spot pools are determined from the different instance types in the overrides. Valid only when the Spot allocation strategy is lowest-price . Value must be in the range of 1 to 20. Defaults to 2 if not specified.

            • SpotMaxPrice (string) --

              The maximum price per unit hour that you are willing to pay for a Spot Instance. If you leave the value at its default (empty), Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling uses the On-Demand price as the maximum Spot price. To remove a value that you previously set, include the property but specify an empty string ("") for the value.

        • MinSize (integer) --

          The minimum size of the group.

        • MaxSize (integer) --

          The maximum size of the group.

describe_instance_refreshes(**kwargs)

Gets information about the instance refreshes for the specified Auto Scaling group.

This operation is part of the instance refresh feature in Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling, which helps you update instances in your Auto Scaling group after you make configuration changes.

To help you determine the status of an instance refresh, this operation returns information about the instance refreshes you previously initiated, including their status, end time, the percentage of the instance refresh that is complete, and the number of instances remaining to update before the instance refresh is complete.

The following are the possible statuses:

  • Pending - The request was created, but the operation has not started.
  • InProgress - The operation is in progress.
  • Successful - The operation completed successfully.
  • Failed - The operation failed to complete. You can troubleshoot using the status reason and the scaling activities.
  • Cancelling - An ongoing operation is being cancelled. Cancellation does not roll back any replacements that have already been completed, but it prevents new replacements from being started.
  • Cancelled - The operation is cancelled.

                The volume size, in GiBs. The following are the supported volumes sizes for each volume type:

                • gp2 and gp3 : 1-16,384
                • io1 : 4-16,384
                • st1 and sc1 : 125-16,384
                • standard : 1-1,024

                You must specify either a SnapshotId or a VolumeSize . If you specify both SnapshotId and VolumeSize , the volume size must be equal or greater than the size of the snapshot.

              • VolumeType (string) --

                The volume type. For more information, see Amazon EBS Volume Types in the Amazon EC2 User Guide for Linux Instances .

                Valid Values: standard | io1 | gp2 | st1 | sc1 | gp3

              • DeleteOnTermination (boolean) --

                Indicates whether the volume is deleted on instance termination. For Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling, the default value is true .

              • Iops (integer) --

                The number of input/output (I/O) operations per second (IOPS) to provision for the volume. For gp3 and io1 volumes, this represents the number of IOPS that are provisioned for the volume. For gp2 volumes, this represents the baseline performance of the volume and the rate at which the volume accumulates I/O credits for bursting.

                The following are the supported values for each volume type:

                • gp3 : 3,000-16,000 IOPS
                • io1 : 100-64,000 IOPS

                For io1 volumes, we guarantee 64,000 IOPS only for Instances built on the Nitro System . Other instance families guarantee performance up to 32,000 IOPS.

                Iops is supported when the volume type is gp3 or io1 and required only when the volume type is io1 . (Not used with standard , gp2 , st1 , or sc1 volumes.)

              • Encrypted (boolean) --

                Specifies whether the volume should be encrypted. Encrypted EBS volumes can only be attached to instances that support Amazon EBS encryption. For more information, see Supported Instance Types . If your AMI uses encrypted volumes, you can also only launch it on supported instance types.

                Note

                If you are creating a volume from a snapshot, you cannot specify an encryption value. Volumes that are created from encrypted snapshots are automatically encrypted, and volumes that are created from unencrypted snapshots are automatically unencrypted. By default, encrypted snapshots use the AWS managed CMK that is used for EBS encryption, but you can specify a custom CMK when you create the snapshot. The ability to encrypt a snapshot during copying also allows you to apply a new CMK to an already-encrypted snapshot. Volumes restored from the resulting copy are only accessible using the new CMK.

                Enabling encryption by default results in all EBS volumes being encrypted with the AWS managed CMK or a customer managed CMK, whether or not the snapshot was encrypted.

                For more information, see Using Encryption with EBS-Backed AMIs in the Amazon EC2 User Guide for Linux Instances and Required CMK key policy for use with encrypted volumes in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide .

              • Throughput (integer) --

                The throughput (MiBps) to provision for a gp3 volume.

            • NoDevice (boolean) --

              Setting this value to true suppresses the specified device included in the block device mapping of the AMI.

              If NoDevice is true for the root device, instances might fail the EC2 health check. In that case, Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling launches replacement instances.

              If you specify NoDevice , you cannot specify Ebs .

        • InstanceMonitoring (dict) --

          Controls whether instances in this group are launched with detailed (true ) or basic (false ) monitoring.

          For more information, see Configure Monitoring for Auto Scaling Instances in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide .

          • Enabled (boolean) --

            If true , detailed monitoring is enabled. Otherwise, basic monitoring is enabled.

        • SpotPrice (string) --

          The maximum hourly price to be paid for any Spot Instance launched to fulfill the request. Spot Instances are launched when the price you specify exceeds the current Spot price. For more information, see Requesting Spot Instances in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide .

        • IamInstanceProfile (string) --

          The name or the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the instance profile associated with the IAM role for the instance. The instance profile contains the IAM role. For more information, see IAM role for applications that run on Amazon EC2 instances in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide .

        • CreatedTime (datetime) --

          The creation date and time for the launch configuration.

        • EbsOptimized (boolean) --

          Specifies whether the launch configuration is optimized for EBS I/O (true ) or not (false ). For more information, see Amazon EBS-Optimized Instances in the Amazon EC2 User Guide for Linux Instances .

        • AssociatePublicIpAddress (boolean) --

          For Auto Scaling groups that are running in a VPC, specifies whether to assign a public IP address to the group's instances. For more information, see Launching Auto Scaling instances in a VPC in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide .

        • PlacementTenancy (string) --

          The tenancy of the instance, either default or dedicated . An instance with dedicated tenancy runs on isolated, single-tenant hardware and can only be launched into a VPC.

          For more information, see Configuring instance tenancy with Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide .

        • MetadataOptions (dict) --

            If the state is optional , you can choose to retrieve instance metadata with or without a signed token header on your request. If you retrieve the IAM role credentials without a token, the version 1.0 role credentials are returned. If you retrieve the IAM role credentials using a valid signed token, the version 2.0 role credentials are returned.

            If the state is required , you must send a signed token header with any instance metadata retrieval requests. In this state, retrieving the IAM role credentials always returns the version 2.0 credentials; the version 1.0 credentials are not available.

          • HttpPutResponseHopLimit (integer) --

            The desired HTTP PUT response hop limit for instance metadata requests. The larger the number, the further instance metadata requests can travel.

            Default: 1

          • HttpEndpoint (string) --

            This parameter enables or disables the HTTP metadata endpoint on your instances. If the parameter is not specified, the default state is enabled .

            Note

            If you specify a value of disabled , you will not be able to access your instance metadata.

    • NextToken (string) --

      A string that indicates that the response contains more items than can be returned in a single response. To receive additional items, specify this string for the NextToken value when requesting the next set of items. This value is null when there are no more items to return.

describe_load_balancer_target_groups(**kwargs)

Gets information about the load balancer target groups for the specified Auto Scaling group.

To determine the availability of registered instances, use the State element in the response. When you attach a target group to an Auto Scaling group, the initial State value is Adding . The state transitions to Added after all Auto Scaling instances are registered with the target group. If Elastic Load Balancing health checks are enabled for the Auto Scaling group, the state transitions to InService after at least one Auto Scaling instance passes the health check. When the target group is in the InService state, Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling can terminate and replace any instances that are reported as unhealthy. If no registered instances pass the health checks, the target group doesn't enter the InService state.

Target groups also have an InService state if you attach them in the CreateAutoScalingGroup API call. If your target group state is InService , but it is not working properly, check the scaling activities by calling DescribeScalingActivities and take any corrective actions necessary.

For help with failed health checks, see Troubleshooting Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling: Health checks in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide . For more information, see Elastic Load Balancing and Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide .

describe_load_balancers(**kwargs)

Gets information about the load balancers for the specified Auto Scaling group.

This operation describes only Classic Load Balancers. If you have Application Load Balancers, Network Load Balancers, or Gateway Load Balancers, use the DescribeLoadBalancerTargetGroups API instead.

To determine the availability of registered instances, use the State element in the response. When you attach a load balancer to an Auto Scaling group, the initial State value is Adding . The state transitions to Added after all Auto Scaling instances are registered with the load balancer. If Elastic Load Balancing health checks are enabled for the Auto Scaling group, the state transitions to InService after at least one Auto Scaling instance passes the health check. When the load balancer is in the InService state, Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling can terminate and replace any instances that are reported as unhealthy. If no registered instances pass the health checks, the load balancer doesn't enter the InService state.

Load balancers also have an InService state if you attach them in the CreateAutoScalingGroup API call. If your load balancer state is InService , but it is not working properly, check the scaling activities by calling DescribeScalingActivities and take any corrective actions necessary.

          • StepScaling
          • SimpleScaling (default)
          • PredictiveScaling

          For more information, see Target tracking scaling policies and Step and simple scaling policies in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide .

        • AdjustmentType (string) --

          Specifies how the scaling adjustment is interpreted (for example, an absolute number or a percentage). The valid values are ChangeInCapacity , ExactCapacity , and PercentChangeInCapacity .

        • MinAdjustmentStep (integer) --

          Available for backward compatibility. Use MinAdjustmentMagnitude instead.

        • MinAdjustmentMagnitude (integer) --

          The minimum value to scale by when the adjustment type is PercentChangeInCapacity .

        • ScalingAdjustment (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.

        • Cooldown (integer) --

          The duration of the policy's cooldown period, in seconds.

        • StepAdjustments (list) --

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

          • (dict) --

            Describes information used to create a step adjustment for a step scaling policy.

            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.

            For more information, see Step adjustments in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide .

            • 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 capacity while a negative number removes from the current capacity.

        • MetricAggregationType (string) --

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

              The name of the alarm.

            • AlarmARN (string) --

              The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the alarm.

        • TargetTrackingConfiguration (dict) --

          A target tracking scaling policy.

          • PredefinedMetricSpecification (dict) --

            A predefined metric. You must specify either a predefined metric or a customized metric.

            • PredefinedMetricType (string) --

              The metric type. The following predefined metrics are available:

              • ASGAverageCPUUtilization - Average CPU utilization of the Auto Scaling group.
              • ASGAverageNetworkIn - Average number of bytes received on all network interfaces by the Auto Scaling group.
              • ASGAverageNetworkOut - Average number of bytes sent out on all network interfaces by the Auto Scaling group.
              • ALBRequestCountPerTarget - Number of requests completed per target in an Application Load Balancer target group.
            • ResourceLabel (string) --

              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 Auto Scaling group.

              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.

          • CustomizedMetricSpecification (dict) --

            A customized metric. You must specify either a predefined metric or a customized metric.

            • MetricName (string) --

              The name of the metric.

            • Namespace (string) --

              The namespace of the metric.

            • Dimensions (list) --

              The dimensions of the metric.

              Conditional: If you published your metric with dimensions, you must specify the same dimensions in your scaling policy.

              • (dict) --

                Describes the dimension of a metric.

                • Name (string) --

                  The name of the dimension.

                • Value (string) --

                  The value of the dimension.

            • Statistic (string) --

              The statistic of the metric.

            • Unit (string) --

              The unit of the metric.

          • TargetValue (float) --

            The target value for the metric.

          • DisableScaleIn (boolean) --

            Indicates whether scaling in by the target tracking scaling policy is disabled. If scaling in is disabled, the target tracking scaling policy doesn't remove instances from the Auto Scaling group. Otherwise, the target tracking scaling policy can remove instances from the Auto Scaling group. The default is false .

        • Enabled (boolean) --

          Indicates whether the policy is enabled (true ) or disabled (false ).

        • PredictiveScalingConfiguration (dict) --

          A predictive scaling policy.

          • MetricSpecifications (list) --

            This structure includes the metrics and target utilization to use for predictive scaling.

            This is an array, but we currently only support a single metric specification. That is, you can specify a target value and a single metric pair, or a target value and one scaling metric and one load metric.

            • (dict) --

              This structure specifies the metrics and target utilization settings for a predictive scaling policy.

              You must specify either a metric pair, or a load metric and a scaling metric individually. Specifying a metric pair instead of individual metrics provides a simpler way to configure metrics for a scaling policy. You choose the metric pair, and the policy automatically knows the correct sum and average statistics to use for the load metric and the scaling metric.

              Example

              • You create a predictive scaling policy and specify ALBRequestCount as the value for the metric pair and 1000.0 as the target value. For this type of metric, you must provide the metric dimension for the corresponding target group, so you also provide a resource label for the Application Load Balancer target group that is attached to your Auto Scaling group.
              • The number of requests the target group receives per minute provides the load metric, and the request count averaged between the members of the target group provides the scaling metric. In CloudWatch, this refers to the RequestCount and RequestCountPerTarget metrics, respectively.
              • For optimal use of predictive scaling, you adhere to the best practice of using a dynamic scaling policy to automatically scale between the minimum capacity and maximum capacity in response to real-time changes in resource utilization.
              • Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling consumes data points for the load metric over the last 14 days and creates an hourly load forecast for predictive scaling. (A minimum of 24 hours of data is required.)
              • After creating the load forecast, Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling determines when to reduce or increase the capacity of your Auto Scaling group in each hour of the forecast period so that the average number of requests received by each instance is as close to 1000 requests per minute as possible at all times.
              • TargetValue (float) --

                Specifies the target utilization.

              • PredefinedMetricPairSpecification (dict) --

                The metric pair specification from which Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling determines the appropriate scaling metric and load metric to use.

                • PredefinedMetricType (string) --

                  Indicates which metrics to use. There are two different types of metrics for each metric type: one is a load metric and one is a scaling metric. For example, if the metric type is ASGCPUUtilization , the Auto Scaling group's total CPU metric is used as the load metric, and the average CPU metric is used for the scaling metric.

                • ResourceLabel (string) --

                  A label that uniquely identifies a specific Application Load Balancer target group from which to determine the request count served by your Auto Scaling group. You can't specify a resource label unless the target group is attached to the Auto Scaling group.

                  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 of the resource label is:

                  app/EC2Co-EcsEl-1TKLTMITMM0EO/f37c06a68c1748aa/targetgroup/EC2Co-Defau-LDNM7Q3ZH1ZN/6d4ea56ca2d6a18d .

                  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.

                  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.

              • PredefinedScalingMetricSpecification (dict) --

                The scaling metric specification.

                • PredefinedMetricType (string) --

                  The metric type.

                • ResourceLabel (string) --

                  A label that uniquely identifies a specific Application Load Balancer target group from which to determine the request count served by your Auto Scaling group. You can't specify a resource label unless the target group is attached to the Auto Scaling group.

                  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 of the resource label is:

                  app/EC2Co-EcsEl-1TKLTMITMM0EO/f37c06a68c1748aa/targetgroup/EC2Co-Defau-LDNM7Q3ZH1ZN/6d4ea56ca2d6a18d .

                  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.

                  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.

              • PredefinedLoadMetricSpecification (dict) --

                The load metric specification.

                • PredefinedMetricType (string) --

                  The metric type.

                • ResourceLabel (string) --

                  A label that uniquely identifies a specific Application Load Balancer target group from which to determine the request count served by your Auto Scaling group. You can't specify a resource label unless the target group is attached to the Auto Scaling group.

                  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 of the resource label is:

                  app/EC2Co-EcsEl-1TKLTMITMM0EO/f37c06a68c1748aa/targetgroup/EC2Co-Defau-LDNM7Q3ZH1ZN/6d4ea56ca2d6a18d .

                  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.

                  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.

          • Mode (string) --

            The predictive scaling mode. Defaults to ForecastOnly if not specified.

          • SchedulingBufferTime (integer) --

            The amount of time, in seconds, by which the instance launch time can be advanced. For example, the forecast says to add capacity at 10:00 AM, and you choose to pre-launch instances by 5 minutes. In that case, the instances will be launched at 9:55 AM. The intention is to give resources time to be provisioned. It can take a few minutes to launch an EC2 instance. The actual amount of time required depends on several factors, such as the size of the instance and whether there are startup scripts to complete.

            The value must be less than the forecast interval duration of 3600 seconds (60 minutes). Defaults to 300 seconds if not specified.

          • MaxCapacityBreachBehavior (string) --

            Defines the behavior that should be applied if the forecast capacity approaches or exceeds the maximum capacity of the Auto Scaling group. Defaults to HonorMaxCapacity if not specified.

            The following are possible values:

            • HonorMaxCapacity - Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling cannot scale out capacity higher than the maximum capacity. The maximum capacity is enforced as a hard limit.
            • IncreaseMaxCapacity - Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling can scale out capacity higher than the maximum capacity when the forecast capacity is close to or exceeds the maximum capacity. The upper limit is determined by the forecasted capacity and the value for MaxCapacityBuffer .
          • MaxCapacityBuffer (integer) --

            The size of the capacity buffer to use when the forecast capacity is close to or exceeds the maximum capacity. The value is specified as a percentage relative to the forecast capacity. For example, if the buffer is 10, this means a 10 percent buffer, such that if the forecast capacity is 50, and the maximum capacity is 40, then the effective maximum capacity is 55.

            If set to 0, Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling may scale capacity higher than the maximum capacity to equal but not exceed forecast capacity.

            Required if the MaxCapacityBreachBehavior property is set to IncreaseMaxCapacity , and cannot be used otherwise.

    • NextToken (string) --

      A string that indicates that the response contains more items than can be returned in a single response. To receive additional items, specify this string for the NextToken value when requesting the next set of items. This value is null when there are no more items to return.

describe_scaling_activities(**kwargs)

Gets information about the scaling activities in the account and Region.

When scaling events occur, you see a record of the scaling activity in the scaling activities. For more information, see Verifying a scaling activity for an Auto Scaling group in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide .

If the scaling event succeeds, the value of the StatusCode element in the response is Successful . If an attempt to launch instances failed, the StatusCode value is Failed or Cancelled and the StatusMessage element in the response indicates the cause of the failure. For help interpreting the StatusMessage , see Troubleshooting Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide .

            The ID of the launch template. To get the template ID, use the Amazon EC2 DescribeLaunchTemplates API operation. New launch templates can be created using the Amazon EC2 CreateLaunchTemplate API.

            Conditional: You must specify either a LaunchTemplateId or a LaunchTemplateName .

          • LaunchTemplateName (string) --

            The name of the launch template. To get the template name, use the Amazon EC2 DescribeLaunchTemplates API operation. New launch templates can be created using the Amazon EC2 CreateLaunchTemplate API.

            Conditional: You must specify either a LaunchTemplateId or a LaunchTemplateName .

          • Version (string) --

            The version number, $Latest , or $Default . To get the version number, use the Amazon EC2 DescribeLaunchTemplateVersions API operation. New launch template versions can be created using the Amazon EC2 CreateLaunchTemplateVersion API. If the value is $Latest , Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling selects the latest version of the launch template when launching instances. If the value is $Default , Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling selects the default version of the launch template when launching instances. The default value is $Default .

        • ProtectedFromScaleIn (boolean) --

          Indicates whether the instance is protected from termination by Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling when scaling in.

        • WeightedCapacity (string) --

          The number of capacity units contributed by the instance based on its instance type.

          Valid Range: Minimum value of 1. Maximum value of 999.

    • NextToken (string) --

      The token for the next set of items to return. (You received this token from a previous call.)

Exceptions

detach_instances(**kwargs)

Removes one or more instances from the specified Auto Scaling group.

After the instances are detached, you can manage them independent of the Auto Scaling group.

If you do not specify the option to decrement the desired capacity, Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling launches instances to replace the ones that are detached.

If there is a Classic Load Balancer attached to the Auto Scaling group, the instances are deregistered from the load balancer. If there are target groups attached to the Auto Scaling group, the instances are deregistered from the target groups.

For more information, see Detach EC2 instances from your Auto Scaling group in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide .

  • HttpMethod (string) -- The http method to use on the generated url. By default, the http method is whatever is used in the method's model.
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_predictive_scaling_forecast(**kwargs)

Retrieves the forecast data for a predictive scaling policy.

Load forecasts are predictions of the hourly load values using historical load data from CloudWatch and an analysis of historical trends. Capacity forecasts are represented as predicted values for the minimum capacity that is needed on an hourly basis, based on the hourly load forecast.

A minimum of 24 hours of data is required to create the initial forecasts. However, having a full 14 days of historical data results in more accurate forecasts.

For more information, see Predictive scaling for Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide .

Exceptions

get_waiter(waiter_name)

Returns an object that can wait for some condition.

Parameters
waiter_name (str) -- The name of the waiter to get. See the waiters section of the service docs for a list of available waiters.
Returns
The specified waiter object.
Return type
botocore.waiter.Waiter
put_lifecycle_hook(**kwargs)

Creates or updates a lifecycle hook for the specified Auto Scaling group.

A lifecycle hook tells Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling to perform an action on an instance when the instance launches (before it is put into service) or as the instance terminates (before it is fully terminated).

This step is a part of the procedure for adding a lifecycle hook to an Auto Scaling group:

  • (Optional) Create a Lambda function and a rule that allows CloudWatch Events to invoke your Lambda function when Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling launches or terminates instances.
  • (Optional) Create a notification target and an IAM role. The target can be either an Amazon SQS queue or an Amazon SNS topic. The role allows Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling to publish lifecycle notifications to the target.
  • Create the lifecycle hook. Specify whether the hook is used when the instances launch or terminate.
  • If you need more time, record the lifecycle action heartbeat to keep the instance in a pending state using the RecordLifecycleActionHeartbeat API call.
  • If you finish before the timeout period ends, complete the lifecycle action using the CompleteLifecycleAction API call.

For more information, see Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling lifecycle hooks in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide .

If you exceed your maximum limit of lifecycle hooks, which by default is 50 per Auto Scaling group, the call fails.

You can view the lifecycle hooks for an Auto Scaling group using the DescribeLifecycleHooks API call. If you are no longer using a lifecycle hook, you can delete it by calling the DeleteLifecycleHook API.

  • LifecycleHookName (string) --

    [REQUIRED]

    The name of the lifecycle hook.

  • AutoScalingGroupName (string) --

    [REQUIRED]

    The name of the Auto Scaling group.

  • LifecycleTransition (string) --

    The instance state to which you want to attach the lifecycle hook. The valid values are:

    • autoscaling:EC2_INSTANCE_LAUNCHING
    • autoscaling:EC2_INSTANCE_TERMINATING

    Required for new lifecycle hooks, but optional when updating existing hooks.

  • RoleARN (string) --

    The ARN of the IAM role that allows the Auto Scaling group to publish to the specified notification target, for example, an Amazon SNS topic or an Amazon SQS queue.

    Required for new lifecycle hooks, but optional when updating existing hooks.

  • NotificationTargetARN (string) --

    The ARN of the notification target that Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling uses to notify you when an instance is in the transition state for the lifecycle hook. This target can be either an SQS queue or an SNS topic.

    If you specify an empty string, this overrides the current ARN.

    This operation uses the JSON format when sending notifications to an Amazon SQS queue, and an email key-value pair format when sending notifications to an Amazon SNS topic.

    When you specify a notification target, Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling sends it a test message. Test messages contain the following additional key-value pair: "Event": "autoscaling:TEST_NOTIFICATION" .

  • NotificationMetadata (string) -- Additional information that you want to include any time Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling sends a message to the notification target.
  • HeartbeatTimeout (integer) --

    The maximum time, in seconds, that can elapse before the lifecycle hook times out. The range is from 30 to 7200 seconds. The default value is 3600 seconds (1 hour).

    If the lifecycle hook times out, Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling performs the action that you specified in the DefaultResult parameter. You can prevent the lifecycle hook from timing out by calling the RecordLifecycleActionHeartbeat API.

  • DefaultResult (string) -- Defines the action the Auto Scaling group should take when the lifecycle hook timeout elapses or if an unexpected failure occurs. This parameter can be either CONTINUE or ABANDON . The default value is ABANDON .

Parameters
  • AutoScalingGroupName (string) --

    [REQUIRED]

    The name of the Auto Scaling group.

  • PolicyName (string) --

    [REQUIRED]

    The name of the policy.

  • PolicyType (string) --

    One of the following policy types:

    • TargetTrackingScaling
    • StepScaling
    • SimpleScaling (default)
    • PredictiveScaling
  • AdjustmentType (string) --

    Specifies how the scaling adjustment is interpreted (for example, an absolute number or a percentage). The valid values are ChangeInCapacity , ExactCapacity , and PercentChangeInCapacity .

    Required if the policy type is StepScaling or SimpleScaling . For more information, see Scaling adjustment types in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide .

  • MinAdjustmentStep (integer) -- Available for backward compatibility. Use MinAdjustmentMagnitude instead.
  • MinAdjustmentMagnitude (integer) --

    The minimum value to scale by when the adjustment type is PercentChangeInCapacity . For example, suppose that you create a step scaling policy to scale out an Auto Scaling group by 25 percent and you specify a MinAdjustmentMagnitude of 2. If the group has 4 instances and the scaling policy is performed, 25 percent of 4 is 1. However, because you specified a MinAdjustmentMagnitude of 2, Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling scales out the group by 2 instances.

    Valid only if the policy type is StepScaling or SimpleScaling . For more information, see Scaling adjustment types in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide .

    Note

    Some Auto Scaling groups use instance weights. In this case, set the MinAdjustmentMagnitude to a value that is at least as large as your largest instance weight.

  • ScalingAdjustment (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. For exact capacity, you must specify a positive value.

    Required if the policy type is SimpleScaling . (Not used with any other policy type.)

  • Cooldown (integer) --

    The duration of the policy's cooldown period, in seconds. When a cooldown period is specified here, it overrides the default cooldown period defined for the Auto Scaling group.

    Valid only if the policy type is SimpleScaling . For more information, see Scaling cooldowns for Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide .

  • MetricAggregationType (string) --

    The aggregation type for the CloudWatch metrics. The valid values are Minimum , Maximum , and Average . If the aggregation type is null, the value is treated as Average .

    Valid only if the policy type is StepScaling .

  • StepAdjustments (list) --

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

    Required if the policy type is StepScaling . (Not used with any other policy type.)

    • (dict) --

      Describes information used to create a step adjustment for a step scaling policy.

      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.

      For more information, see Step adjustments in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide .

      • 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 capacity while a negative number removes from the current capacity.

  • EstimatedInstanceWarmup (integer) --

    The estimated time, in seconds, until a newly launched instance can contribute to the CloudWatch metrics. If not provided, the default is to use the value from the default cooldown period for the Auto Scaling group.

    Valid only if the policy type is TargetTrackingScaling or StepScaling .

  • TargetTrackingConfiguration (dict) --

    A target tracking scaling policy. Provides support for predefined or customized metrics.

    The following predefined metrics are available:

    • ASGAverageCPUUtilization
    • ASGAverageNetworkIn
    • ASGAverageNetworkOut
    • ALBRequestCountPerTarget

    If you specify ALBRequestCountPerTarget for the metric, you must specify the ResourceLabel parameter with the PredefinedMetricSpecification .

    For more information, see TargetTrackingConfiguration in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling API Reference .

    Required if the policy type is TargetTrackingScaling .

    • PredefinedMetricSpecification (dict) --

      A predefined metric. You must specify either a predefined metric or a customized metric.

      • PredefinedMetricType (string) -- [REQUIRED]

        The metric type. The following predefined metrics are available:

        • ASGAverageCPUUtilization - Average CPU utilization of the Auto Scaling group.
        • ASGAverageNetworkIn - Average number of bytes received on all network interfaces by the Auto Scaling group.
        • ASGAverageNetworkOut - Average number of bytes sent out on all network interfaces by the Auto Scaling group.
        • ALBRequestCountPerTarget - Number of requests completed per target in an Application Load Balancer target group.
      • ResourceLabel (string) --

        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 Auto Scaling group.

        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.

    • CustomizedMetricSpecification (dict) --

      A customized metric. You must specify either a predefined metric or a customized metric.

      • MetricName (string) -- [REQUIRED]

        The name of the metric.

      • Namespace (string) -- [REQUIRED]

        The namespace of the metric.

      • Dimensions (list) --

        The dimensions of the metric.

        Conditional: If you published your metric with dimensions, you must specify the same dimensions in your scaling policy.

        • (dict) --

          Describes the dimension of a metric.

          • 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.

    • TargetValue (float) -- [REQUIRED]

      The target value for the metric.

    • DisableScaleIn (boolean) --

      Indicates whether scaling in by the target tracking scaling policy is disabled. If scaling in is disabled, the target tracking scaling policy doesn't remove instances from the Auto Scaling group. Otherwise, the target tracking scaling policy can remove instances from the Auto Scaling group. The default is false .

  • Enabled (boolean) -- Indicates whether the scaling policy is enabled or disabled. The default is enabled. For more information, see Disabling a scaling policy for an Auto Scaling group in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide .
  • PredictiveScalingConfiguration (dict) --

    A predictive scaling policy. Provides support for only predefined metrics.

    Predictive scaling works with CPU utilization, network in/out, and the Application Load Balancer request count.

    For more information, see PredictiveScalingConfiguration in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling API Reference .

    Required if the policy type is PredictiveScaling .

    • MetricSpecifications (list) -- [REQUIRED]

      This structure includes the metrics and target utilization to use for predictive scaling.

      This is an array, but we currently only support a single metric specification. That is, you can specify a target value and a single metric pair, or a target value and one scaling metric and one load metric.

      • (dict) --

        This structure specifies the metrics and target utilization settings for a predictive scaling policy.

        You must specify either a metric pair, or a load metric and a scaling metric individually. Specifying a metric pair instead of individual metrics provides a simpler way to configure metrics for a scaling policy. You choose the metric pair, and the policy automatically knows the correct sum and average statistics to use for the load metric and the scaling metric.

        Example

        • You create a predictive scaling policy and specify ALBRequestCount as the value for the metric pair and 1000.0 as the target value. For this type of metric, you must provide the metric dimension for the corresponding target group, so you also provide a resource label for the Application Load Balancer target group that is attached to your Auto Scaling group.
        • The number of requests the target group receives per minute provides the load metric, and the request count averaged between the members of the target group provides the scaling metric. In CloudWatch, this refers to the RequestCount and RequestCountPerTarget metrics, respectively.
        • For optimal use of predictive scaling, you adhere to the best practice of using a dynamic scaling policy to automatically scale between the minimum capacity and maximum capacity in response to real-time changes in resource utilization.
        • Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling consumes data points for the load metric over the last 14 days and creates an hourly load forecast for predictive scaling. (A minimum of 24 hours of data is required.)
        • After creating the load forecast, Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling determines when to reduce or increase the capacity of your Auto Scaling group in each hour of the forecast period so that the average number of requests received by each instance is as close to 1000 requests per minute as possible at all times.
        • TargetValue (float) -- [REQUIRED]

          Specifies the target utilization.

        • PredefinedMetricPairSpecification (dict) --

          The metric pair specification from which Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling determines the appropriate scaling metric and load metric to use.

          • PredefinedMetricType (string) -- [REQUIRED]

            Indicates which metrics to use. There are two different types of metrics for each metric type: one is a load metric and one is a scaling metric. For example, if the metric type is ASGCPUUtilization , the Auto Scaling group's total CPU metric is used as the load metric, and the average CPU metric is used for the scaling metric.

          • ResourceLabel (string) --

            A label that uniquely identifies a specific Application Load Balancer target group from which to determine the request count served by your Auto Scaling group. You can't specify a resource label unless the target group is attached to the Auto Scaling group.

            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 of the resource label is:

            app/EC2Co-EcsEl-1TKLTMITMM0EO/f37c06a68c1748aa/targetgroup/EC2Co-Defau-LDNM7Q3ZH1ZN/6d4ea56ca2d6a18d .

            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.

            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.

        • PredefinedScalingMetricSpecification (dict) --

          The scaling metric specification.

          • PredefinedMetricType (string) -- [REQUIRED]

            The metric type.

            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.

            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.

        • PredefinedLoadMetricSpecification (dict) --

          The load metric specification.

          • PredefinedMetricType (string) -- [REQUIRED]

            The metric type.

          • ResourceLabel (string) --

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

            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.

    • Mode (string) --

      The predictive scaling mode. Defaults to ForecastOnly if not specified.

    • SchedulingBufferTime (integer) --

      The amount of time, in seconds, by which the instance launch time can be advanced. For example, the forecast says to add capacity at 10:00 AM, and you choose to pre-launch instances by 5 minutes. In that case, the instances will be launched at 9:55 AM. The intention is to give resources time to be provisioned. It can take a few minutes to launch an EC2 instance. The actual amount of time required depends on several factors, such as the size of the instance and whether there are startup scripts to complete.

      The value must be less than the forecast interval duration of 3600 seconds (60 minutes). Defaults to 300 seconds if not specified.

    • MaxCapacityBreachBehavior (string) --

      Defines the behavior that should be applied if the forecast capacity approaches or exceeds the maximum capacity of the Auto Scaling group. Defaults to HonorMaxCapacity if not specified.

      The following are possible values:

      • HonorMaxCapacity - Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling cannot scale out capacity higher than the maximum capacity. The maximum capacity is enforced as a hard limit.
      • IncreaseMaxCapacity - Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling can scale out capacity higher than the maximum capacity when the forecast capacity is close to or exceeds the maximum capacity. The upper limit is determined by the forecasted capacity and the value for MaxCapacityBuffer .
    • MaxCapacityBuffer (integer) --

      The size of the capacity buffer to use when the forecast capacity is close to or exceeds the maximum capacity. The value is specified as a percentage relative to the forecast capacity. For example, if the buffer is 10, this means a 10 percent buffer, such that if the forecast capacity is 50, and the maximum capacity is 40, then the effective maximum capacity is 55.

      If set to 0, Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling may scale capacity higher than the maximum capacity to equal but not exceed forecast capacity.

      Required if the MaxCapacityBreachBehavior property is set to IncreaseMaxCapacity , and cannot be used otherwise.

)
Parameters
  • AutoScalingGroupName (string) --

    [REQUIRED]

    The name of the Auto Scaling group.

  • ScheduledActionName (string) --

    [REQUIRED]

    The name of this scaling action.

  • Time (datetime) -- This parameter is no longer used.
  • StartTime (datetime) --

    The date and time for this action to start, in YYYY-MM-DDThh:mm:ssZ format in UTC/GMT only and in quotes (for example, "2019-06-01T00:00:00Z" ).

    If you specify Recurrence and StartTime , Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling performs the action at this time, and then performs the action based on the specified recurrence.

    If you try to schedule your action in the past, Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling returns an error message.

  • EndTime (datetime) -- The date and time for the recurring schedule to end, in UTC.
  • Recurrence (string) --

    The recurring schedule for this action. This format consists of five fields separated by white spaces: [Minute] [Hour] [Day_of_Month] [Month_of_Year] [Day_of_Week]. The value must be in quotes (for example, "30 0 1 1,6,12 *" ). For more information about this format, see Crontab .

    When StartTime and EndTime are specified with Recurrence , they form the boundaries of when the recurring action starts and stops.

    Cron expressions use Universal Coordinated Time (UTC) by default.

  • MinSize (integer) -- The minimum size of the Auto Scaling group.
  • MaxSize (integer) -- The maximum size of the Auto Scaling group.
  • DesiredCapacity (integer) -- The desired capacity is the initial capacity of the Auto Scaling group after the scheduled action runs and the capacity it attempts to maintain. It can scale beyond this capacity if you add more scaling conditions.
  • TimeZone (string) --

    Specifies the time zone for a cron expression. If a time zone is not provided, UTC is used by default.

    Valid values are the canonical names of the IANA time zones, derived from the IANA Time Zone Database (such as Etc/GMT+9 or Pacific/Tahiti ). For more information, see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_tz_database_time_zones .

put_warm_pool(**kwargs)

Creates or updates a warm pool for the specified Auto Scaling group. A warm pool is a pool of pre-initialized EC2 instances that sits alongside the Auto Scaling group. Whenever your application needs to scale out, the Auto Scaling group can draw on the warm pool to meet its new desired capacity. For more information and example configurations, see Warm pools for Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide .

This operation must be called from the Region in which the Auto Scaling group was created. This operation cannot be called on an Auto Scaling group that has a mixed instances policy or a launch template or launch configuration that requests Spot Instances.

You can view the instances in the warm pool using the DescribeWarmPool API call. If you are no longer using a warm pool, you can delete it by calling the DeleteWarmPool API.

See also: AWS API Documentation

Request Syntax

response = client.put_warm_pool(
    AutoScalingGroupName='string',
    MaxGroupPreparedCapacity=123,
    MinSize=123,
    PoolState='Stopped'|'Running'
)
Parameters
  • AutoScalingGroupName (string) --

    [REQUIRED]

    The name of the Auto Scaling group.

  • MaxGroupPreparedCapacity (integer) --

    Specifies the maximum number of instances that are allowed to be in the warm pool or in any state except Terminated for the Auto Scaling group. This is an optional property. Specify it only if you do not want the warm pool size to be determined by the difference between the group's maximum capacity and its desired capacity.

    Warning

    If a value for MaxGroupPreparedCapacity is not specified, Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling launches and maintains the difference between the group's maximum capacity and its desired capacity. If you specify a value for MaxGroupPreparedCapacity , Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling uses the difference between the MaxGroupPreparedCapacity and the desired capacity instead.

    The size of the warm pool is dynamic. Only when MaxGroupPreparedCapacity and MinSize are set to the same value does the warm pool have an absolute size.

    If the desired capacity of the Auto Scaling group is higher than the MaxGroupPreparedCapacity , the capacity of the warm pool is 0, unless you specify a value for MinSize . To remove a value that you previously set, include the property but specify -1 for the value.

  • MinSize (integer) -- Specifies the minimum number of instances to maintain in the warm pool. This helps you to ensure that there is always a certain number of warmed instances available to handle traffic spikes. Defaults to 0 if not specified.
  • PoolState (string) -- Sets the instance state to transition to after the lifecycle actions are complete. Default is Stopped .

record_lifecycle_action_heartbeat(**kwargs)

Records a heartbeat for the lifecycle action associated with the specified token or instance. This extends the timeout by the length of time defined using the PutLifecycleHook API call.

This step is a part of the procedure for adding a lifecycle hook to an Auto Scaling group:

  • (Optional) Create a Lambda function and a rule that allows CloudWatch Events to invoke your Lambda function when Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling launches or terminates instances.
  • (Optional) Create a notification target and an IAM role. The target can be either an Amazon SQS queue or an Amazon SNS topic. The role allows Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling to publish lifecycle notifications to the target.
  • Create the lifecycle hook. Specify whether the hook is used when the instances launch or terminate.
  • If you need more time, record the lifecycle action heartbeat to keep the instance in a pending state.
  • If you finish before the timeout period ends, complete the lifecycle action.

For more information, see Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling lifecycle hooks in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide .

start_instance_refresh(**kwargs)

Starts a new instance refresh operation, which triggers a rolling replacement of previously launched instances in the Auto Scaling group with a new group of instances.

This operation is part of the instance refresh feature in Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling, which helps you update instances in your Auto Scaling group after you make configuration changes.

If the call succeeds, it creates a new instance refresh request with a unique ID that you can use to track its progress. To query its status, call the DescribeInstanceRefreshes API. To describe the instance refreshes that have already run, call the DescribeInstanceRefreshes API. To cancel an instance refresh operation in progress, use the CancelInstanceRefresh API.

Request Syntax

response = client.start_instance_refresh(
    AutoScalingGroupName='string',
    Strategy='Rolling',
    Preferences={
        'MinHealthyPercentage': 123,
        'InstanceWarmup': 123,
        'CheckpointPercentages': [
            123,
        ],
        'CheckpointDelay': 123
    }
)
Parameters
  • AutoScalingGroupName (string) --

    [REQUIRED]

    The name of the Auto Scaling group.

  • Strategy (string) --

    The strategy to use for the instance refresh. The only valid value is Rolling .

    A rolling update is an update that is applied to all instances in an Auto Scaling group until all instances have been updated. A rolling update can fail due to failed health checks or if instances are on standby or are protected from scale in. If the rolling update process fails, any instances that were already replaced are not rolled back to their previous configuration.

  • Preferences (dict) --

    Set of preferences associated with the instance refresh request.

    If not provided, the default values are used. For MinHealthyPercentage , the default value is 90 . For InstanceWarmup , the default is to use the value specified for the health check grace period for the Auto Scaling group.

    For more information, see RefreshPreferences in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling API Reference .

    • MinHealthyPercentage (integer) --

      The amount of capacity in the Auto Scaling group that must remain healthy during an instance refresh to allow the operation to continue, as a percentage of the desired capacity of the Auto Scaling group (rounded up to the nearest integer). The default is 90 .

    • InstanceWarmup (integer) --

      The number of seconds until a newly launched instance is configured and ready to use. During this time, Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling does not immediately move on to the next replacement. The default is to use the value for the health check grace period defined for the group.

    • CheckpointPercentages (list) --

      Threshold values for each checkpoint in ascending order. Each number must be unique. To replace all instances in the Auto Scaling group, the last number in the array must be 100 .

      For usage examples, see Adding checkpoints to an instance refresh in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide .

      • (integer) --
    • CheckpointDelay (integer) --

      The amount of time, in seconds, to wait after a checkpoint before continuing. This property is optional, but if you specify a value for it, you must also specify a value for CheckpointPercentages . If you specify a value for CheckpointPercentages and not for CheckpointDelay , the CheckpointDelay defaults to 3600 (1 hour).

response = client.suspend_processes(
    AutoScalingGroupName='string',
    ScalingProcesses=[
        'string',
    ]
)
Parameters
  • AutoScalingGroupName (string) --

    [REQUIRED]

    The name of the Auto Scaling group.

  • ScalingProcesses (list) --

    One or more of the following processes:

    • Launch
    • Terminate
    • AddToLoadBalancer
    • AlarmNotification
    • AZRebalance
    • HealthCheck
    • InstanceRefresh
    • ReplaceUnhealthy
    • ScheduledActions

    If you omit this parameter, all processes are specified.

    • (string) --
Returns

None

Exceptions

Examples

response = client.suspend_processes(
    AutoScalingGroupName='my-auto-scaling-group',
    ScalingProcesses=[
        'AlarmNotification',
    ],
)

print(response)

Expected Output:

{
    'ResponseMetadata': {
        '...': '...',
    },
}
terminate_instance_in_auto_scaling_group(**kwargs)

Terminates the specified instance and optionally adjusts the desired group size. This operation cannot be called on instances in a warm pool.

This call simply makes a termination request. The instance is not terminated immediately. When an instance is terminated, the instance status changes to terminated . You can't connect to or start an instance after you've terminated it.

If you do not specify the option to decrement the desired capacity, Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling launches instances to replace the ones that are terminated.

By default, Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling balances instances across all Availability Zones. If you decrement the desired capacity, your Auto Scaling group can become unbalanced between Availability Zones. Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling tries to rebalance the group, and rebalancing might terminate instances in other zones. For more information, see Rebalancing activities in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide .

update_auto_scaling_group(**kwargs)
We strongly recommend that all Auto Scaling groups use launch templates to ensure full functionality for Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling and Amazon EC2.

Updates the configuration for the specified Auto Scaling group.

To update an Auto Scaling group, specify the name of the group and the parameter that you want to change. Any parameters that you don't specify are not changed by this update request. The new settings take effect on any scaling activities after this call returns.

If you associate a new launch configuration or template with an Auto Scaling group, all new instances will get the updated configuration. Existing instances continue to run with the configuration that they were originally launched with. When you update a group to specify a mixed instances policy instead of a launch configuration or template, existing instances may be replaced to match the new purchasing options that you specified in the policy. For example, if the group currently has 100% On-Demand capacity and the policy specifies 50% Spot capacity, this means that half of your instances will be gradually terminated and relaunched as Spot Instances. When replacing instances, Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling launches new instances before terminating the old ones, so that updating your group does not compromise the performance or availability of your application.

Note the following about changing DesiredCapacity , MaxSize , or MinSize :

  • If a scale-in activity occurs as a result of a new DesiredCapacity value that is lower than the current size of the group, the Auto Scaling group uses its termination policy to determine which instances to terminate.
  • If you specify a new value for MinSize without specifying a value for DesiredCapacity , and the new MinSize is larger than the current size of the group, this sets the group's DesiredCapacity to the new MinSize value.
  • If you specify a new value for MaxSize without specifying a value for DesiredCapacity , and the new MaxSize is smaller than the current size of the group, this sets the group's DesiredCapacity to the new MaxSize value.

To see which parameters have been set, call the DescribeAutoScalingGroups API. To view the scaling policies for an Auto Scaling group, call the DescribePolicies API. If the group has scaling policies, you can update them by calling the PutScalingPolicy API.

      • Overrides (list) --

        Any properties that you specify override the same properties in the launch template. If not provided, Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling uses the instance type specified in the launch template when it launches an instance.

        • (dict) --

          Describes an override for a launch template. The maximum number of instance types that can be associated with an Auto Scaling group is 40. The maximum number of distinct launch templates you can define for an Auto Scaling group is 20. For more information about configuring overrides, see Configuring overrides in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide .

          • InstanceType (string) --

            The instance type, such as m3.xlarge . You must use an instance type that is supported in your requested Region and Availability Zones. For more information, see Instance types in the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud User Guide .

          • WeightedCapacity (string) --

            The number of capacity units provided by the specified instance type in terms of virtual CPUs, memory, storage, throughput, or other relative performance characteristic. When a Spot or On-Demand Instance is provisioned, the capacity units count toward the desired capacity. Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling provisions instances until the desired capacity is totally fulfilled, even if this results in an overage. For example, if there are 2 units remaining to fulfill capacity, and Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling can only provision an instance with a WeightedCapacity of 5 units, the instance is provisioned, and the desired capacity is exceeded by 3 units. For more information, see Instance weighting for Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide . Value must be in the range of 1 to 999.

          • LaunchTemplateSpecification (dict) --

            Provides the launch template to be used when launching the instance type. For example, some instance types might require a launch template with a different AMI. If not provided, Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling uses the launch template that's defined for your mixed instances policy. For more information, see Specifying a different launch template for an instance type in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide .

            • LaunchTemplateId (string) --

              The ID of the launch template. To get the template ID, use the Amazon EC2 DescribeLaunchTemplates API operation. New launch templates can be created using the Amazon EC2 CreateLaunchTemplate API.

              Conditional: You must specify either a LaunchTemplateId or a LaunchTemplateName .

            • LaunchTemplateName (string) --

              The name of the launch template. To get the template name, use the Amazon EC2 DescribeLaunchTemplates API operation. New launch templates can be created using the Amazon EC2 CreateLaunchTemplate API.

              Conditional: You must specify either a LaunchTemplateId or a LaunchTemplateName .

            • Version (string) --

              The version number, $Latest , or $Default . To get the version number, use the Amazon EC2 DescribeLaunchTemplateVersions API operation. New launch template versions can be created using the Amazon EC2 CreateLaunchTemplateVersion API. If the value is $Latest , Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling selects the latest version of the launch template when launching instances. If the value is $Default , Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling selects the default version of the launch template when launching instances. The default value is $Default .

    • InstancesDistribution (dict) --

      Specifies the instances distribution. If not provided, the value for each property in InstancesDistribution uses a default value.

      • OnDemandAllocationStrategy (string) --

        Indicates how to allocate instance types to fulfill On-Demand capacity. The only valid value is prioritized , which is also the default value. This strategy uses the order of instance types in the LaunchTemplateOverrides to define the launch priority of each instance type. The first instance type in the array is prioritized higher than the last. If all your On-Demand capacity cannot be fulfilled using your highest priority instance, then the Auto Scaling groups launches the remaining capacity using the second priority instance type, and so on.

      • OnDemandBaseCapacity (integer) --

        The minimum amount of the Auto Scaling group's capacity that must be fulfilled by On-Demand Instances. This base portion is provisioned first as your group scales. Defaults to 0 if not specified. If you specify weights for the instance types in the overrides, set the value of OnDemandBaseCapacity in terms of the number of capacity units, and not the number of instances.

      • OnDemandPercentageAboveBaseCapacity (integer) --

        Controls the percentages of On-Demand Instances and Spot Instances for your additional capacity beyond OnDemandBaseCapacity . Expressed as a number (for example, 20 specifies 20% On-Demand Instances, 80% Spot Instances). Defaults to 100 if not specified. If set to 100, only On-Demand Instances are provisioned.

      • SpotAllocationStrategy (string) --

        Indicates how to allocate instances across Spot Instance pools.

        If the allocation strategy is lowest-price , the Auto Scaling group launches instances using the Spot pools with the lowest price, and evenly allocates your instances across the number of Spot pools that you specify. Defaults to lowest-price if not specified.

        If the allocation strategy is capacity-optimized (recommended), the Auto Scaling group launches instances using Spot pools that are optimally chosen based on the available Spot capacity. Alternatively, you can use capacity-optimized-prioritized and set the order of instance types in the list of launch template overrides from highest to lowest priority (from first to last in the list). Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling honors the instance type priorities on a best-effort basis but optimizes for capacity first.

      • SpotInstancePools (integer) --

        The number of Spot Instance pools across which to allocate your Spot Instances. The Spot pools are determined from the different instance types in the overrides. Valid only when the Spot allocation strategy is lowest-price . Value must be in the range of 1 to 20. Defaults to 2 if not specified.

      • SpotMaxPrice (string) --

        The maximum price per unit hour that you are willing to pay for a Spot Instance. If you leave the value at its default (empty), Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling uses the On-Demand price as the maximum Spot price. To remove a value that you previously set, include the property but specify an empty string ("") for the value.

  • MinSize (integer) -- The minimum size of the Auto Scaling group.
  • MaxSize (integer) --

    The maximum size of the Auto Scaling group.

    Note

    With a mixed instances policy that uses instance weighting, Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling may need to go above MaxSize to meet your capacity requirements. In this event, Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling will never go above MaxSize by more than your largest instance weight (weights that define how many units each instance contributes to the desired capacity of the group).

  • DesiredCapacity (integer) -- The desired capacity is the initial capacity of the Auto Scaling group after this operation completes and the capacity it attempts to maintain. This number must be greater than or equal to the minimum size of the group and less than or equal to the maximum size of the group.
  • DefaultCooldown (integer) -- The amount of time, in seconds, after a scaling activity completes before another scaling activity can start. The default value is 300 . This setting applies when using simple scaling policies, but not when using other scaling policies or scheduled scaling. For more information, see Scaling cooldowns for Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide .
  • AvailabilityZones (list) --

    One or more Availability Zones for the group.

    • (string) --
  • HealthCheckType (string) -- The service to use for the health checks. The valid values are EC2 and ELB . If you configure an Auto Scaling group to use ELB health checks, it considers the instance unhealthy if it fails either the EC2 status checks or the load balancer health checks.
  • HealthCheckGracePeriod (integer) --

    The amount of time, in seconds, that Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling waits before checking the health status of an EC2 instance that has come into service. The default value is 0 . For more information, see Health check grace period in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide .

    Conditional: Required if you are adding an ELB health check.

  • PlacementGroup (string) -- The name of an existing placement group into which to launch your instances, if any.

For example, if there are 2 units remaining to fulfill capacity, and Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling can only provision an instance with a WeightedCapacity of 5 units, the instance is provisioned, and the desired capacity is exceeded by 3 units. For more information, see Instance weighting for Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide . Value must be in the range of 1 to 999.

                • LaunchTemplateSpecification (dict) --

                  Provides the launch template to be used when launching the instance type. For example, some instance types might require a launch template with a different AMI. If not provided, Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling uses the launch template that's defined for your mixed instances policy. For more information, see Specifying a different launch template for an instance type in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide .

                  • LaunchTemplateId (string) --

                    The ID of the launch template. To get the template ID, use the Amazon EC2 DescribeLaunchTemplates API operation. New launch templates can be created using the Amazon EC2 CreateLaunchTemplate API.

                    Conditional: You must specify either a LaunchTemplateId or a LaunchTemplateName .

                  • LaunchTemplateName (string) --

                    The name of the launch template. To get the template name, use the Amazon EC2 DescribeLaunchTemplates API operation. New launch templates can be created using the Amazon EC2 CreateLaunchTemplate API.

                    Conditional: You must specify either a LaunchTemplateId or a LaunchTemplateName .

                  • Version (string) --

                    The version number, $Latest , or $Default . To get the version number, use the Amazon EC2 DescribeLaunchTemplateVersions API operation. New launch template versions can be created using the Amazon EC2 CreateLaunchTemplateVersion API. If the value is $Latest , Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling selects the latest version of the launch template when launching instances. If the value is $Default , Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling selects the default version of the launch template when launching instances. The default value is $Default .

          • InstancesDistribution (dict) --

            Specifies the instances distribution. If not provided, the value for each property in InstancesDistribution uses a default value.

            • OnDemandAllocationStrategy (string) --

              Indicates how to allocate instance types to fulfill On-Demand capacity. The only valid value is prioritized , which is also the default value. This strategy uses the order of instance types in the LaunchTemplateOverrides to define the launch priority of each instance type. The first instance type in the array is prioritized higher than the last. If all your On-Demand capacity cannot be fulfilled using your highest priority instance, then the Auto Scaling groups launches the remaining capacity using the second priority instance type, and so on.

            • OnDemandBaseCapacity (integer) --

              The minimum amount of the Auto Scaling group's capacity that must be fulfilled by On-Demand Instances. This base portion is provisioned first as your group scales. Defaults to 0 if not specified. If you specify weights for the instance types in the overrides, set the value of OnDemandBaseCapacity in terms of the number of capacity units, and not the number of instances.

            • OnDemandPercentageAboveBaseCapacity (integer) --

              Controls the percentages of On-Demand Instances and Spot Instances for your additional capacity beyond OnDemandBaseCapacity . Expressed as a number (for example, 20 specifies 20% On-Demand Instances, 80% Spot Instances). Defaults to 100 if not specified. If set to 100, only On-Demand Instances are provisioned.

            • SpotAllocationStrategy (string) --

              Indicates how to allocate instances across Spot Instance pools.

              If the allocation strategy is lowest-price , the Auto Scaling group launches instances using the Spot pools with the lowest price, and evenly allocates your instances across the number of Spot pools that you specify. Defaults to lowest-price if not specified.

              If the allocation strategy is capacity-optimized (recommended), the Auto Scaling group launches instances using Spot pools that are optimally chosen based on the available Spot capacity. Alternatively, you can use capacity-optimized-prioritized and set the order of instance types in the list of launch template overrides from highest to lowest priority (from first to last in the list). Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling honors the instance type priorities on a best-effort basis but optimizes for capacity first.

            • SpotInstancePools (integer) --

              The number of Spot Instance pools across which to allocate your Spot Instances. The Spot pools are determined from the different instance types in the overrides. Valid only when the Spot allocation strategy is lowest-price . Value must be in the range of 1 to 20. Defaults to 2 if not specified.

            • SpotMaxPrice (string) --

              The maximum price per unit hour that you are willing to pay for a Spot Instance. If you leave the value at its default (empty), Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling uses the On-Demand price as the maximum Spot price. To remove a value that you previously set, include the property but specify an empty string ("") for the value.

        • MinSize (integer) --

          The minimum size of the group.

        • MaxSize (integer) --

                The snapshot ID of the volume to use.

                You must specify either a VolumeSize or a SnapshotId .

              • VolumeSize (integer) --

                The volume size, in GiBs. The following are the supported volumes sizes for each volume type:

                • gp2 and gp3 : 1-16,384
                • io1 : 4-16,384
                • st1 and sc1 : 125-16,384
                • standard : 1-1,024

                You must specify either a SnapshotId or a VolumeSize . If you specify both SnapshotId and VolumeSize , the volume size must be equal or greater than the size of the snapshot.

              • VolumeType (string) --

                The volume type. For more information, see Amazon EBS Volume Types in the Amazon EC2 User Guide for Linux Instances .

                Valid Values: standard | io1 | gp2 | st1 | sc1 | gp3

              • DeleteOnTermination (boolean) --

                Indicates whether the volume is deleted on instance termination. For Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling, the default value is true .

              • Iops (integer) --

                The number of input/output (I/O) operations per second (IOPS) to provision for the volume. For gp3 and io1 volumes, this represents the number of IOPS that are provisioned for the volume. For gp2 volumes, this represents the baseline performance of the volume and the rate at which the volume accumulates I/O credits for bursting.

                The following are the supported values for each volume type:

                • gp3 : 3,000-16,000 IOPS
                • io1 : 100-64,000 IOPS

                For io1 volumes, we guarantee 64,000 IOPS only for Instances built on the Nitro System . Other instance families guarantee performance up to 32,000 IOPS.

                Iops is supported when the volume type is gp3 or io1 and required only when the volume type is io1 . (Not used with standard , gp2 , st1 , or sc1 volumes.)

              • Encrypted (boolean) --

                Specifies whether the volume should be encrypted. Encrypted EBS volumes can only be attached to instances that support Amazon EBS encryption. For more information, see Supported Instance Types . If your AMI uses encrypted volumes, you can also only launch it on supported instance types.

                Note

                If you are creating a volume from a snapshot, you cannot specify an encryption value. Volumes that are created from encrypted snapshots are automatically encrypted, and volumes that are created from unencrypted snapshots are automatically unencrypted. By default, encrypted snapshots use the AWS managed CMK that is used for EBS encryption, but you can specify a custom CMK when you create the snapshot. The ability to encrypt a snapshot during copying also allows you to apply a new CMK to an already-encrypted snapshot. Volumes restored from the resulting copy are only accessible using the new CMK.

                Enabling encryption by default results in all EBS volumes being encrypted with the AWS managed CMK or a customer managed CMK, whether or not the snapshot was encrypted.

                For more information, see Using Encryption with EBS-Backed AMIs in the Amazon EC2 User Guide for Linux Instances and Required CMK key policy for use with encrypted volumes in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide .

              • Throughput (integer) --

                The throughput (MiBps) to provision for a gp3 volume.

            • NoDevice (boolean) --

              Setting this value to true suppresses the specified device included in the block device mapping of the AMI.

              If NoDevice is true for the root device, instances might fail the EC2 health check. In that case, Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling launches replacement instances.

              If you specify NoDevice , you cannot specify Ebs .

        • InstanceMonitoring (dict) --

          Controls whether instances in this group are launched with detailed (true ) or basic (false ) monitoring.

          For more information, see Configure Monitoring for Auto Scaling Instances in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide .

          • Enabled (boolean) --

            If true , detailed monitoring is enabled. Otherwise, basic monitoring is enabled.

        • SpotPrice (string) --

          The maximum hourly price to be paid for any Spot Instance launched to fulfill the request. Spot Instances are launched when the price you specify exceeds the current Spot price. For more information, see Requesting Spot Instances in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide .

        • IamInstanceProfile (string) --

          The name or the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the instance profile associated with the IAM role for the instance. The instance profile contains the IAM role. For more information, see IAM role for applications that run on Amazon EC2 instances in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide .

        • CreatedTime (datetime) --

          The creation date and time for the launch configuration.

        • EbsOptimized (boolean) --

          Specifies whether the launch configuration is optimized for EBS I/O (true ) or not (false ). For more information, see Amazon EBS-Optimized Instances in the Amazon EC2 User Guide for Linux Instances .

        • AssociatePublicIpAddress (boolean) --

          For Auto Scaling groups that are running in a VPC, specifies whether to assign a public IP address to the group's instances. For more information, see Launching Auto Scaling instances in a VPC in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide .

        • PlacementTenancy (string) --

          The tenancy of the instance, either default or dedicated . An instance with dedicated tenancy runs on isolated, single-tenant hardware and can only be launched into a VPC.

          For more information, see Configuring instance tenancy with Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide .

        • MetadataOptions (dict) --

          The metadata options for the instances. For more information, see Configuring the Instance Metadata Options in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide .

          • HttpTokens (string) --

            The state of token usage for your instance metadata requests. If the parameter is not specified in the request, the default state is optional .

            If the state is optional , you can choose to retrieve instance metadata with or without a signed token header on your request. If you retrieve the IAM role credentials without a token, the version 1.0 role credentials are returned. If you retrieve the IAM role credentials using a valid signed token, the version 2.0 role credentials are returned.

            If the state is required , you must send a signed token header with any instance metadata retrieval requests. In this state, retrieving the IAM role credentials always returns the version 2.0 credentials; the version 1.0 credentials are not available.

          • HttpPutResponseHopLimit (integer) --

            The desired HTTP PUT response hop limit for instance metadata requests. The larger the number, the further instance metadata requests can travel.

            Default: 1

          • HttpEndpoint (string) --

            This parameter enables or disables the HTTP metadata endpoint on your instances. If the parameter is not specified, the default state is enabled .

            Note

            If you specify a value of disabled , you will not be able to access your instance metadata.

          Specifies how the scaling adjustment is interpreted (for example, an absolute number or a percentage). The valid values are ChangeInCapacity , ExactCapacity , and PercentChangeInCapacity .

        • MinAdjustmentStep (integer) --

          Available for backward compatibility. Use MinAdjustmentMagnitude instead.

        • MinAdjustmentMagnitude (integer) --

          The minimum value to scale by when the adjustment type is PercentChangeInCapacity .

        • ScalingAdjustment (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.

        • Cooldown (integer) --

          The duration of the policy's cooldown period, in seconds.

        • StepAdjustments (list) --

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

          • (dict) --

            Describes information used to create a step adjustment for a step scaling policy.

            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.

            For more information, see Step adjustments in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide .

            • 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 capacity while a negative number removes from the current capacity.

        • MetricAggregationType (string) --

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

        • TargetTrackingConfiguration (dict) --

          A target tracking scaling policy.

          • PredefinedMetricSpecification (dict) --

            A predefined metric. You must specify either a predefined metric or a customized metric.

            • PredefinedMetricType (string) --

              The metric type. The following predefined metrics are available:

              • ASGAverageCPUUtilization - Average CPU utilization of the Auto Scaling group.
              • ASGAverageNetworkIn - Average number of bytes received on all network interfaces by the Auto Scaling group.
              • ASGAverageNetworkOut - Average number of bytes sent out on all network interfaces by the Auto Scaling group.
              • ALBRequestCountPerTarget - Number of requests completed per target in an Application Load Balancer target group.
            • ResourceLabel (string) --

              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 Auto Scaling group.

              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.

          • CustomizedMetricSpecification (dict) --

            A customized metric. You must specify either a predefined metric or a customized metric.

            • MetricName (string) --

              The name of the metric.

            • Namespace (string) --

              The namespace of the metric.

            • Dimensions (list) --

              The dimensions of the metric.

              Conditional: If you published your metric with dimensions, you must specify the same dimensions in your scaling policy.

              • (dict) --

                Describes the dimension of a metric.

                • Name (string) --

                  The name of the dimension.

                • Value (string) --

                  The value of the dimension.

              The statistic of the metric.

            • Unit (string) --

              The unit of the metric.

          • TargetValue (float) --

            The target value for the metric.

          • DisableScaleIn (boolean) --

            Indicates whether scaling in by the target tracking scaling policy is disabled. If scaling in is disabled, the target tracking scaling policy doesn't remove instances from the Auto Scaling group. Otherwise, the target tracking scaling policy can remove instances from the Auto Scaling group. The default is false .

        • Enabled (boolean) --

          Indicates whether the policy is enabled (true ) or disabled (false ).

        • PredictiveScalingConfiguration (dict) --

          A predictive scaling policy.

          • MetricSpecifications (list) --

            This structure includes the metrics and target utilization to use for predictive scaling.

            This is an array, but we currently only support a single metric specification. That is, you can specify a target value and a single metric pair, or a target value and one scaling metric and one load metric.

            • (dict) --

              This structure specifies the metrics and target utilization settings for a predictive scaling policy.

              You must specify either a metric pair, or a load metric and a scaling metric individually. Specifying a metric pair instead of individual metrics provides a simpler way to configure metrics for a scaling policy. You choose the metric pair, and the policy automatically knows the correct sum and average statistics to use for the load metric and the scaling metric.

              Example

              • You create a predictive scaling policy and specify ALBRequestCount as the value for the metric pair and 1000.0 as the target value. For this type of metric, you must provide the metric dimension for the corresponding target group, so you also provide a resource label for the Application Load Balancer target group that is attached to your Auto Scaling group.
              • The number of requests the target group receives per minute provides the load metric, and the request count averaged between the members of the target group provides the scaling metric. In CloudWatch, this refers to the RequestCount and RequestCountPerTarget metrics, respectively.
              • For optimal use of predictive scaling, you adhere to the best practice of using a dynamic scaling policy to automatically scale between the minimum capacity and maximum capacity in response to real-time changes in resource utilization.
              • Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling consumes data points for the load metric over the last 14 days and creates an hourly load forecast for predictive scaling. (A minimum of 24 hours of data is required.)
              • After creating the load forecast, Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling determines when to reduce or increase the capacity of your Auto Scaling group in each hour of the forecast period so that the average number of requests received by each instance is as close to 1000 requests per minute as possible at all times.
              • TargetValue (float) --

                Specifies the target utilization.

              • PredefinedMetricPairSpecification (dict) --

                The metric pair specification from which Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling determines the appropriate scaling metric and load metric to use.

                • PredefinedMetricType (string) --

                  Indicates which metrics to use. There are two different types of metrics for each metric type: one is a load metric and one is a scaling metric. For example, if the metric type is ASGCPUUtilization , the Auto Scaling group's total CPU metric is used as the load metric, and the average CPU metric is used for the scaling metric.

                • ResourceLabel (string) --

                  A label that uniquely identifies a specific Application Load Balancer target group from which to determine the request count served by your Auto Scaling group. You can't specify a resource label unless the target group is attached to the Auto Scaling group.

                  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 of the resource label is:

                  app/EC2Co-EcsEl-1TKLTMITMM0EO/f37c06a68c1748aa/targetgroup/EC2Co-Defau-LDNM7Q3ZH1ZN/6d4ea56ca2d6a18d .

                  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.

                  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.

              • PredefinedScalingMetricSpecification (dict) --

                The scaling metric specification.

                • PredefinedMetricType (string) --

                  The metric type.

                • ResourceLabel (string) --

                  A label that uniquely identifies a specific Application Load Balancer target group from which to determine the request count served by your Auto Scaling group. You can't specify a resource label unless the target group is attached to the Auto Scaling group.

                  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 of the resource label is:

                  app/EC2Co-EcsEl-1TKLTMITMM0EO/f37c06a68c1748aa/targetgroup/EC2Co-Defau-LDNM7Q3ZH1ZN/6d4ea56ca2d6a18d .

                  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.

                  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.

              • PredefinedLoadMetricSpecification (dict) --

                The load metric specification.

                • PredefinedMetricType (string) --

                  The metric type.

                • ResourceLabel (string) --

                  A label that uniquely identifies a specific Application Load Balancer target group from which to determine the request count served by your Auto Scaling group. You can't specify a resource label unless the target group is attached to the Auto Scaling group.

                  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 of the resource label is:

                  app/EC2Co-EcsEl-1TKLTMITMM0EO/f37c06a68c1748aa/targetgroup/EC2Co-Defau-LDNM7Q3ZH1ZN/6d4ea56ca2d6a18d .

                  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.

                  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.

          • Mode (string) --

            The predictive scaling mode. Defaults to ForecastOnly if not specified.

          • SchedulingBufferTime (integer) --

            The amount of time, in seconds, by which the instance launch time can be advanced. For example, the forecast says to add capacity at 10:00 AM, and you choose to pre-launch instances by 5 minutes. In that case, the instances will be launched at 9:55 AM. The intention is to give resources time to be provisioned. It can take a few minutes to launch an EC2 instance. The actual amount of time required depends on several factors, such as the size of the instance and whether there are startup scripts to complete.

            The value must be less than the forecast interval duration of 3600 seconds (60 minutes). Defaults to 300 seconds if not specified.

          • MaxCapacityBreachBehavior (string) --

            Defines the behavior that should be applied if the forecast capacity approaches or exceeds the maximum capacity of the Auto Scaling group. Defaults to HonorMaxCapacity if not specified.

            The following are possible values:

            • HonorMaxCapacity - Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling cannot scale out capacity higher than the maximum capacity. The maximum capacity is enforced as a hard limit.
            • IncreaseMaxCapacity - Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling can scale out capacity higher than the maximum capacity when the forecast capacity is close to or exceeds the maximum capacity. The upper limit is determined by the forecasted capacity and the value for MaxCapacityBuffer .
          • MaxCapacityBuffer (integer) --

            The size of the capacity buffer to use when the forecast capacity is close to or exceeds the maximum capacity. The value is specified as a percentage relative to the forecast capacity. For example, if the buffer is 10, this means a 10 percent buffer, such that if the forecast capacity is 50, and the maximum capacity is 40, then the effective maximum capacity is 55.

            If set to 0, Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling may scale capacity higher than the maximum capacity to equal but not exceed forecast capacity.

            Required if the MaxCapacityBreachBehavior property is set to IncreaseMaxCapacity , and cannot be used otherwise.
