Chef recipe to auto scale apps deployment


#1

Hi,

I am looking at ways to auto scale my infrastructure based on the
cpu/memory used by the apps,i know there is something similar in AWS,

this what i am trying to do ,

1 check cpu/memory usage on a server
2 if hits the fan on 1 above then pick a server from a list of serves
listed in a file
3. run the app on the server picked from 2.

Please advise, i believe someone has already done this in past i just don’t
know where and how to start it.

Thanks
Manoj

I’d use the nagios cookbookhttps://github.com/opscode-cookbooks/nagios and write checks that when these things happen scale up and scale down. It’s kinda hacky but with enough testing you should be able to make it happen.
