I have tried the MIG lab several times, including setting up new projects for a clean slate, but for some reason the auto scaling does not work. I’ve set the cool down low (15 sec) and auto scale at 10% CPU. A few other things – It seems the startup script is not getting hit, the stack driver logs do not show the script starting up. I had to manually run the startup script on the instance for things to work. Ideas?
I works, but if you choose
f1-micro, you will have to be patient a little bit :).
f1-micro is very weak and it usually takes more time to execute the whole start-up script than other "non-free" instance types.
