A new platform for documentation and tutorials is launching soon.
We are migrating Nomad documentation into HashiCorp Developer, our new developer experience.
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.
