Create a scale down action

Before you begin

Create diagnostic system modules

To create a new scale down action:

  1. If you have not already done so, in the Change Center of the Administration Console, click Lock & Edit (see Use the Change Center).
  2. In the left pane of the Console, select Diagnostics > Diagnostic Modules.
  3. In the Diagnostic System Modules table, select the name of the diagnostic system module you want to assign the scale down action to.
  4. Select Configuration > Policies and Actions > Actions.
  5. Click New.
  6. Select Scale Down from the Type list and click Next.
  7. Enter a name for the scale down action in the Action Name field.
  8. Enter the timeout period in the Timeout (in seconds) field. The timeout period is the length of time, in seconds, that an action has to complete execution. By default, the timeout period is 0, which disables the action timeout.
  9. To enable or disable the scale down action, select or deselect the Enable Action box.
  10. Click Next.
  11. On the Action Configuration - Scale Down Action Properties page:
    1. In Cluster Name, select the dynamic cluster you want to perform the scale down action on.
    2. In Scaling Size, enter the number of running dynamic server instances to scale down by when the action is invoked.


    A scale down operation cannot scale down below the limit set in Min Dynamic Cluster Size for the dynamic cluster. See Configure elasticity for a dynamic cluster.

  12. Click Finish.
  13. In the Change Center, click Activate Changes.
