Using Auto Scaling to Process SQS Messages

Length: 00:12:15

Lesson Summary:

A common use case is to have an SQS queue backed by an AWS Auto Scaling group. In general, the queue will store data that needs to be processed (in this lesson, the queue will store customer orders from a web application). The Auto Scaling group can then be configured to scale out or in based on the size of the queue, with CloudWatch alarms configured to trigger on queue size. This lesson provides a hands-on walkthrough of this use case using both the AWS Management Console and the AWS Command Line Interface to configure the scaling parameters.
