Auto-scaling SIG

This SIG is formed. Please go to following sites for more information (No plan to keep updating this WIKI page)

Original proposal: http://lists.openstack.org/pipermail/openstack-discuss/2019-January/001656.html


This SIG aims to improve the experience of developing, operating, and using auto-scaling and its related features (like metering, cluster schedule, life cycle management), and to coordinate efforts across projects and communities (like k8s cluster auto-scaling on OpenStack). The SIG also provides a central place to put tests, documentations, and even common libraries for auto-scaling features.

The SIG is expected to focus more on auto-scaling user workloads; however work on auto-scaling infrastructure is also welcome, especially considering that user workloads in an undercloud are actually infrastructure in the corresponding overcloud.


OpenStack provides multiple methods to auto-scale your cluster (Like using Heat AutoScalingGroup, Senlin Cluster, etc.). However without general coordination across projects, it may not be easy for users and ops to achieve auto-scaling on OpenStack. Developers tend to be focused on individual projects rather than cross-project integration. Most of the components required by auto-scaling already exist within OpenStack, but we need to provide a more simple way for users and ops to adopt auto-scaling. And allowing developers to coordinate together instead of implement something all over again.


  • Set up SIG, init doc, meeting, ml
  • Create Forum and Auto-scaling SIG PTG sessions - done, https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/DEN-auto-scaling-SIG
  • Collect use cases for Auto-Scaling in OpenStack
  • Improve documentation for Auto-Scaling features in various OpenStack services
  • Foster cross-project communication and development of Auto-Scaling features

Getting Involved

We're currently working on a structure to make everyone more easier to getting involved. Our initial git repository, documentation, and other information will be up soon.

Community Infrastructure / Resources

SIG Chairs

  • Rico Lin
  • Duc Truong
  • Zane Bitter

We welcome anyone who willing to join and help. And we surely are willing to re-elect chairs as soon as we got our init setup done.

Upcoming events


Past events

Project liasons

This is a good idea, but we need some more discussion on who and how we can bridge this system up.
