    The options are given as

    1. Create an AWS Auto Scaling policy that scales out the ECS service when the service’s memory utilization is too high

    2. Create an AWS Auto Scaling policy that scales out the ECS cluster when the cluster’s CPU utilization is too high.

    But the AWS documentation states that:

    For ECS service metric, choose the metric to track. The following metrics are available:

    <ul type=”disc”>

  • ECSServiceAverageCPUUtilization—Average CPU utilization of the service.

  • ECSServiceAverageMemoryUtilization—Average memory utilization of the service.

  • Hence, the options should say “service’s CPU utilization” but it shows “Cluster’s CPU utilization”. This is confusing.

    Hello dnmech007,

    Thanks for pointing out this typo, and sorry for the confusion. Yes, it should say services instead of cluster since service CPU utilization is computed differently from cluster CPU utilization. We’ll do the necessary changes.

    Let me know if you have further questions.
