Auto scaling option based on QPUs in Azure AS server as an inbuilt option in the portal
Based on the QPU limit of Azure AAS for an tier, it will be a great idea to have an auto scale option(which can be set to optional) to move to next tier or to downgrade to the appropriate tier based on QPUs. This option will save the significant cost and help for better performance. It will be great if it allows the user to set the threshold and number of times to check for the particular metric to move to the next tier.

Yes, this option will be really helpful. At present we are using powershell script which will run based on schedule but not based on AAS Performance/usage.

We would like to see that feature as well, in addition to the QPUS monitoring we would like it to watch the memory consumption as well because we scale up a lot of times because of the memory not because of QPUS

This is a great idea! The feature should include 3 options too, to favor cost savings, performance, or balanced. :)
