Heroku::Autoscale

WARNING

This gem is a proof of concept and should not be used in production applications. There is currently no mechanism to prevent multiple dynos on the same app all running this code from fighting each other for control.

Installation

Usage (Rails 2.x)

# config/environment.rb
config.middleware.use Heroku::Autoscale,
  :username  => ENV["HEROKU_USERNAME"],
  :password  => ENV["HEROKU_PASSWORD"],
  :app_name  => ENV["HEROKU_APP_NAME"],
  :min_dynos => 2,
  :max_dynos => 5,
  :queue_wait_low  => 100,  # milliseconds
  :queue_wait_high => 5000, # milliseconds
