Auto Scaling is a feature that automatically upgrades services provisioning to the next tier when services reach 90% of usage. This is used to avoid blocking the usage of the services in that specific Profile.

By provisioning a service to a certain amount, TagoIO creates a limit for that service. If the service usage in a Profile reaches that limit, that service will be blocked temporarily. 

How Auto Scaling Works

When activated, if your account reaches 90% of the limit of any service, TagoIO will automatically upgrade that service to the next tier and charge you  the amount equivalent for that service.

For example, if your limit for SMS was set to 100/mo and your application used 90 of them, it will upgrade to the next tier, in this case, to 200/mo.

This upgrade will occur in about 3 minutes after your account reaches its limits.

When TagoIO upgrades a service to the next tier, you will be notified via e-mail and Auto Scaling will be disabled for that service until you manually enable it again

This ensures that if something goes wrong with your application and it ends up spending all its resources, TagoIO will not keep upgrading that service, avoiding unnecessary charges.

How to Enable Auto Scaling

Go to Profiles, select a profile, and enable the Auto-scale for each service as needed .
