A scale group can contain a number of guest members which can fluctuate up and down, staying within a defined range, manually or automatically based on policies given. Groups are set of VLANs to be placed behind. Groups can also have static hardware/guests pinned to the group. These static resources can be used to effect things like moving averages for policy triggers but are not counted as group members and are not subject to automatic reclaim.


Create a scale group. If minimumMemberCount is greater than zero or desiredMemberCount is present, guest members will be created right away.
Delete this group. This can only be done on an empty, active group.
Edit this group.
Delete this group and destroy all members of it.
Retrieve the account for this scaling group.

Retrieve the status for this scale group.
Retrieve the termination policy for this scaling group.
Retrieve collection of guests that have been scaled with the group. When this group is active, the count of guests here is guaranteed to be between minimumMemberCount and maximumMemberCount inclusively.
