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