Configuring Autoscale using schedules

If you are looking forward to organizing your autoscale configurations for various schedules exclusively, below we have listed the available schedule options:

Periodic Schedules for Day and Night

We will recommend you to use this option particularly when you need to scale your website statistics on an everyday basis. You might require relatively more instances during the daytime in comparison to evening time. This schedule option gives you what you are really looking for to fulfill it.

Cyclic Schedules for Weekdays and Weekends

This is the best option to consider when you intend to scale up or down your website statistics in a different manner for weekdays and weekends.

Particular Dates

Consider using this option when you specifically need to scale your website for particular dates and time period. This process of scaling does not form the part of the repetitive schedule. For instance, if you are owning an online retail website, you might need to define a schedule for Black Friday to help you with more sales. Before initiating the auto-scale process, consider the following factors.

The primary step to enable autoscale settings for an Azure website is to set the website mode to Standard. Afterward, the management portal will provide you with a flexible schedule thus letting you define the schedule that you want to configure. Figure 1 illustrates the scheduling options as provided in the management portal.

As soon as you define the schedules, you can easily configure autoscale to scale the number of your website occurrences. You can set the instances between the scale of 1 and 10. For instance, if you opt for the schedule of weekday or weekend, you may want to organize weekday to run 6 instances and weekend to run two instances. Using these features, your azure website can scale instances automatically. Figure 2 demonstrates the weekday auto-scale setting.

You can measure your website instances up and down, however, there are certain limitations. For instance, if you want to set a low-end range of the instance, you can’t set it at zero. It must be set at one to get the process started.
