|Work with the Eucalyptus User Console / Work with Auto Scaling Groups|
This dialog allows you to create a scaling group. An Auto Scaling group defines the parameters for the Eucalyptus instances that are used for scaling, as well as the minimum, maximum, and (optionally) the desired number of instances to use for Auto Scaling your application. For more information on Auto Scaling, please see Using Auto Scaling in the Eucalyptus User Guide.
This section is where you specify the basic configuration of your new auto scaling group.
In this section, you can specify load balancers, availability zones, and health checks for the instances that run in your auto scaling group.
In this section, you can define the scaling policies for your auto scaling group. An Auto Scaling policy defines how to perform scaling actions in response to CloudWatch alarms. Auto scaling policies can either scale-in, which terminates instances in your Auto Scaling group, or scale-out, which will launch new instances in your Auto Scaling group.
