Cloudera Operational Database (COD) supports fast autoscaling for higher computing requirements

Rising Star

When you create a new operational database using CDP CLI, you can enable fast autoscaling by defining the required parameters using the --auto-scaling-parameters option. COD now supports a new instance group called, Compute. The nodes under this instance group are automatically scaled up or scaled down based on the CPU utilization and RPC latency.

To use fast autoscaling, you must have the COD_USE_COMPUTE_ONLY_NODES entitlement.

Following is a sample command.

cdp opdb create-database —environment-name <env_name> –database-name <db_name> --auto-scaling-parameters '{"minComputeNodesForDatabase":<min_compute_nodes>, "maxComputeNodesForDatabase": <max_compute_nodes>}'

This is available starting in COD v1.37 and you do not need to upgrade to a higher version of COD to benefit from this feature.
