maximum group size (required)

-m COUNT, --min-size COUNT

minimum group size (required)

--default-cooldown SECONDS

amount of time, in seconds, after a scaling activity completes before any further trigger-related scaling activities may start

--desired-capacity COUNT

number of running instances the group should contain

--grace-period SECONDS

number of seconds to wait before starting health checks on newly-created instances

--health-check-type {EC2,ELB}

service to obtain health check status from

--load-balancers ELB1,ELB2,...

comma-separated list of load balancers to use

--placement-group PLACEMENTGROUP

placement group in which to launch new instances

--tag "k=VALUE, id=VALUE, t=VALUE, v=VALUE, p={true,false}"

attributes of a tag to affect. Tags follow the following format: "id=resource-name, t=resource-type, k=tag-key, v=tag-val, p=propagate-at-launch-flag", where k is the tag's name, v is the tag's value, id is a resource ID, t is a resource type, and p is whether to propagate tags to instances created by the group. A value for 'k=' is required for each tag. The rest are optional. This argument may be used more than once. Each time affects a different tag.

--termination-policies POLICY1,POLICY2,...

-U URL, --url URL

auto-scaling service endpoint URL

--region USER@REGION
