ecs-host-service-scale

A Lambda function to ensure an ECS Service is set to the correct Desired Count for a One-Task-Per-Host placement value for any cluster that runs the Service.

Requirements

  • boto3 (included in AWS Lambda functions, no need for packaged deployment)
  • ECS_SERVICE_ARN environment variable
  • IAM Role/Policy access setup

Flow

UML Sequence Flow

Deployment

The function is meant to be deployed as a non-VPC Lambda function. It will probably work in a VPC environment, given an Internet Gateway and proper permissions, but it simply does not need access to any in-VPC resources, only AWS API calls.

  • IAM Policy & IAM Role allowing: ecs:Describe* and ecs:UpdateService
  • CloudWatch Event Rule for: {"source": ["aws.ecs"], "detail-type": ["ECS Container Instance State Change"]}
  • Code from lambda_function.py
  • The ECS Service ARN environment variable

Testing

  • Install all requirements via pip install -r requirements.txt
  • Execute tests vis pytest

See py.test docs and botocore Stubber reference for more.
