This is an autoscaler for Kubernetes deployments built in C#. Based on a metric that can be extended (out of the box, it's using Azure Storage Queues message count), it will scale the deployment replica count up or down.
Companion blog post there.
It's mainly intended for demo purposes and can be used at your own risk.
Build the docker image and push it to a container registry.
There is a chart to deploy the service, use the following command to deploy, look at the
values.yaml file in the chart to see the values you can override
helm template chart --set connectionString="$CONNECTION_STRING" --set namespace="messages" --set deployment="messages-consumer" --set imageName="chfevcr.azurecr.io/autoscaler" | kubectl apply -f -
The application is using the following environment variable to run:
Developmentwill use a channel opened by
Productionwill use in-cluster connection.
NAMESPACE: Namespace in which the deployment is provisioned
DEPLOYMENT: Name of the deployment to scale
REPLICAS_MIN: Minimum number of replicas. Auto-scaler will never attempt to scale the deployment below that number.
REPLICAS_MAX: Maximum number of replicas. Auto-scaler will never attempt to scale the deployment above that number.
TARGET_MAX: Maximum value for the target range. When the actual measurement is above this value, the autoscaler will attempt to scale up.
TARGET_MIN: Minimum value for the target range. When the actual measurement is below this value, the autoscaler will attempt to scale down.
POLLING_INTERVAL_S: Interval at which the auto-scaler will poll the metric used for scaling, measured in seconds. The default is 10 seconds
SCALE_INTERVAL_S: Interval at which the auto-scaler will decide to scale up or down, measured in seconds. Default is 1 minute. By default auto-scaler uses an average of all the metrics collected since the last iteration (so, by default, it will average the last 6 values).
Specific to Azure Storage Queues:
CONNECTION_STRING: Connection string to the storage account in which the queue to monitor is created.
QUEUE_NAME: Name of the queue to monitor
