Prevent the immediate deallocation of scalled virtual machines when manually starting
I have a series of Virtual Machines in a cloud instance which switch on or off based on CPU usage.
Sometimes I want to manually start all virtual machines to apply some configuration changes.
Unfortunately the auto scaling causes the machines to be immediately switch back off. I have tried setting the "Scale down wait time" to 60 minutes but this setting is ignored if you manually start the machines.
The only work around at the moment:
1) Turn off scaling.
2) Start all virtual machines and apply configurations
3) Re-configure scaling settings.
I suggest you should honor the "Scale down wait time" when a scaled virtual machine is manually started.
So to be clear, you’re suggesting that the cooldown period should be based on any scaling action, not just an autoscaling action? This seems like a reasonable change.
