»Target Plugins

Target plugins determine where the resource to be autoscaled is located and execute the scaling actions determined by the Autoscaler.

The target can be a group of a Nomad job (in which case, the scaling type is called horizontal application scaling), the number of Nomad clients (horizontal cluster scaling), or the amount of resources assigned to a task of a Nomad job (vertical application scaling).

»Common Policy Configuration Options

All target plugins support the following policy config parameters.

  • dry-run (bool: false) - If set to true, the target will not be scaled and the proposed scaling action will only be logged.
