 Block Devices

Each of the *_block_device attributes controls a portion of the AWS Instance’s “Block Device Mapping”. It’s a good idea to familiarize yourself with AWS’s Block Device Mapping docs to understand the implications of using these attributes.

1. Each ebs_block_device supports the following:

device_name – (Required). The name of the device to mount.

snapshot_id – (Optional) The Snapshot ID to mount.

volume_type – (Optional) The type of volume. Can be "standard", "gp2", or "io1".

delete_on_termination – (Optional) Whether the volume should be destroyed on instance termination.

encrypted – (Optional) Enables EBS encryption on the volume.

//optional
data "aws_ami" "amazon_linux" {
  most_recent = true

}
//optional

ebs_block_device { device_name = “${data.aws_ami.amazon_linux.root_device_name}” volume_type = ‘gp2’ volume_size = 80 delete_on_termination = true }
ebs_block_device { device_name = “/dev/xvdb” snapshot_id = ‘snap-12345678’ volume_type = ‘io1’ volume_size = 80 iops = 100 delete_on_termination = true encrypted = true }

Modifying any ebs_block_device currently resource replacement.

Using the default AMi is optional, any AMI can be used.

2. Each ephemeral_block_device supports the following:

device_name – The name of the block device to mount on the instance.

virtual_name – The Instance Store Device Name(e.g. "ephemeral0").

ephemeral_block_device {

}

Currently, changes to *_block_device configuration of existing resources cannot be automatically detected by Terraform. After making updates to block device configuration, resource recreation can be manually triggered by using the taint command.

  • autoscale_is_enabled – (Optional, Default: `false`) Specifies whether the auto scaling feature is enabled.
  • autoscale_cooldown – (Optional, Default: `300`) The amount of time, in seconds, after a scaling activity completes before any further trigger-related scaling activities can start. Minimum 180, must be a multiple of 60.
  • autoscale_headroom – (Optional) An option to set compute reserve for the cluster.
  • cpu_per_unit – (Optional, Default: `0`) How much CPU to allocate for headroom unit.
  • memory_per_unit – (Optional, Default: `0`) The amount of memory in each headroom unit. Measured in MiB.
  • num_of_units – (Optional, Default: `0`) How many units to allocate for headroom unit.
  • autoscale_down – (Optional) Setting for scale down actions.
  • evaluation_periods – (Optional, Default: `5`) Number of periods over which data is compared. Minimum 3, Measured in consecutive minutes.

Usage:

hcl
integration_docker_swarm = {
    master_host          = "10.10.10.10"
    master_port          = 2376
    autoscale_is_enabled = true
    autoscale_cooldown   = 180
    
    autoscale_headroom = {
        cpu_per_unit    = 2048
        memory_per_unit = 2048
        num_of_units    = 1
    }
    
    autoscale_down = {
        evaluation_periods = 3
    } 
}

 

Update Policy (Optional)

should_resume_stateful – (Optional) Boolean, this will apply resuming action for Stateful instances in the Elastigroup upon scale up or capacity changes. Example usage will be for Elastigroups that will have schedualing rules to set a target capacity of 0 instnaces in the night and automatically restore the same state of the isntnaces in the morning.

should_roll – (Required; Boolean) – sets the enablement of the roll option

roll_config – (Optional) While used, you can control whether the group should perform a deployment after an update to the configuration

  • batch_size_percentage – (Required; integer) – Sets the percentage of the instances to deploy in each batch
  • grace_period – (Optional; integer) – Sets the grace period for new instances to become healthy
  • health_check_type – (Optional; String) – Sets the health check type to use.
    Supported Arguments: EC2 | K8S_NODE | ECS_CLUSTER_INSTANCE | ELB | HCS | MLB | MLB_RUNTIME | TARGET_GROUP | MULTAI_TARGET_SET | NOMAD_NODE
