»Dynamic Application Sizing Average Strategy Plugin


This functionality only exists in Nomad Autoscaler Enterprise. This is not present in the open source version of Nomad Autoscaler.

The app-sizing-avg plugin calculates the average value seen across the historical metrics dataset. The plugin applies an exponential weight decay to the data, in order to give more significance to recent data over older data.

This plugin is only recommended for CPU values of workloads with very stable resource usage levels, such as batch jobs.

»Agent Configuration Options

The app-sizing-avg plugin is automatically launched by Nomad Autoscaler Enterprise and so the following setup is optional.

strategy "app-sizing-avg" {
  driver = "app-sizing-avg"
strategy "app-sizing-avg" {  driver = "app-sizing-avg"}

»Policy Configuration Options

check "avg" {
  strategy "app-sizing-avg" {}
check "avg" {  strategy "app-sizing-avg" {}}

The app-sizing-avg plugin doesn't have any configuration.
