App-AutoScaler Build Status

The App-AutoScaler provides the capability to adjust the computation resources for Cloud Foundry applications through

  • Dynamic scaling based on application performance metrics
  • Scheduled scaling based on time

The App-AutoScaler has the following components:

  • api : provides public APIs to manage scaling policy
  • servicebroker: implements the Cloud Foundry service broker API
  • metricscollector: collects application performance metrics via loggregator v1 API (beiing deprecated)
  • metricsgateway : collects and filters loggregator events via loggregator v2 API
  • metricsserver: transforms loggregator events to app-autoscaler performance metrics ( metricsgateway + metricsserver is a replacement of metricscollector)
  • metricsforwarder: receives and forwards custom metrics to loggreator via v2 ingress API
  • eventgenerator: aggreates memory metrics, evaluates scaling rules and triggers events for dynamic scaling
  • scheduler: manages the schedules in scaling policy and trigger events for scheduled scaling
  • scalingengine: takes the scaling actions based on dynamic scaling rules or schedules

You can follow the development progress on Pivotal Tracker.

Development

System requirements

Database requirement

The App-AutoScaler uses Postgres as the backend data store. To download and install, refer to PostgreSQL web site.

Setup

To set up the development, firstly clone this project

$ git clone https://github.com/cloudfoundry/app-autoscaler.git
$ cd app-autoscaler
$ git submodule update --init --recursive

Initialize the Database

createuser postgres -s
psql postgres://postgres@127.0.0.1:5432 -c 'DROP DATABASE IF EXISTS autoscaler'
psql postgres://postgres@127.0.0.1:5432 -c 'CREATE DATABASE autoscaler'

Install consul

To be able to run unit tests and integration tests, you'll need to install consul binary.

if uname -a | grep Darwin; then os=darwin; else os=linux; fi
curl -L -o $TMPDIR/consul-0.7.5.zip "https://releases.hashicorp.com/consul/0.7.5/consul_0.7.5_${os}_amd64.zip"
unzip $TMPDIR/consul-0.7.5.zip -d $GOPATH/bin
rm $TMPDIR/consul-0.7.5.zip

Unit tests

go install github.com/onsi/ginkgo/ginkgo
export DBURL=postgres://postgres@localhost/autoscaler?sslmode=disable
pushd src/autoscaler
ginkgo -r -race -randomizeAllSpecs
popd

pushd scheduler
mvn test
popd

Integration tests

pushd scheduler
mvn package -DskipTests
popd

go install github.com/onsi/ginkgo/ginkgo
export DBURL=postgres://postgres@localhost/autoscaler?sslmode=disable
ginkgo -r -race -randomizeAllSpecs src/integration

Deploy and offer Auto-Scaler as a service

Go to app-autoscaler-release project for how to BOSH deploy App-AutoScaler

Use Auto-Scaler service

Refer to user guide for the details of how to use the Auto-Scaler service, including policy definition, supported metrics, public API specification and commond line tool.
