Maintaining High Availability with Auto Scaling (for Linux)Go to Lab
Step 97 says "...whenever CPU Utilization exceeds or equals (<=) 30%... It should say "...whenever CPU Utilization is below or equals (<=) 30%... exceeds -> is below. Copy / paste error. Also, the "Generate Load" button does not sustain server load for very long at all. I suspect this process has a fixed loop length, which is no longer adequate to keep the server busy long enough to span multiple intervals. Either increasing the loop counter or using the system time to terminate the loop would be a better illustration of the functionality. Lastly, it would be much more clear that multiple servers are being hit if the endpoint displayed a box for each instance. Since this is technically difficult as instances shouldn't generally communicate with each other, it would be helpful to better explain that the student should keep an eye on the EC2 Instance ID to see it change as the individual instances are being hit. The graphic below this step is further misleading since it appears that two boxes are next to each other (and on the same page). The core concepts being illustrated by the lab are otherwise helpful.
aws cli wasn't working at all, and I had to create things from console wherever I could... therefore, I was not able to complete everything I needed to.
