This tutorial covers the setup for an automatic Elastigroup Instance autoscaling for ECS. Once enabled, Elastigroup dynamically scales your cluster up to ensure there are always sufficient resources to run all tasks. With the “automatic” option Elastigroup analyzes your ECS cluster topology and automatically configures your cluster’s autoscaling for optimized performance and costs.

To enable ECS AutoScaler in Automatic mode:

  • Enter the Elastigroup Creation Wizard or edit your existing ECS-integrated Elastigroup.
