Auto Scaling Scheduled Actions
Sometimes, you will know in advance that you will need additional capacity. You can schedule auto scaling actions to be triggered at your convenience to accommodate your needs. When you click on the "Scheduled Actions" button, you will be presented with a simple form.
As you can see from this form, you can specify the minimum, maximum and desired capacity; whether this scheduled action is recurring (yes or no); and the date and time to execute the action. This is a very powerful and useful tool.
