Starting, Stopping, and Scaling Apps With the TIBCO® Cloud - Command Line Interface
You can scale an app with the TIBCO Cloud - Command Line Interface (CLI) to change the number of running instances. Scaling is also used to start an app that has no running instances, or stop an app by scaling it down to zero instances.
App scaling is done using the
app scaledown, and
app scaleto commands.
Scale up the app
myapp1by adding three instances:
tibcli app scaleup 3 myapp1
Scale down the app
myapp1by one instance:
tibcli app scaledown 1 myapp1
Scale the app
myapp1to three instances:
tibcli app scaleto 3 myapp1
You can see app instances in the TIBCO® Cloud Integration web UI, or list the applications using the
tibcli app listCLI command to see the number of instances running:
tibcli app list
Each of the above commands work with apps in the default sandbox. You can also scale apps in another sandbox with the
-soption. For example, to scale up the app
myapp1in the sandbox
myTestBoxby adding three instances:
tibcli app scaleup --sandbox myTestBox 3 myapp1
TIBCO Cloud Integration Application instances are fault-tolerant. TIBCO Cloud Integration checks if Application instances are still running. If it detects that an Application instance has failed, it will automatically restart a new instance. For example, if an Application’s desired instance count is two, and one of the instances stops running, a second instance will be automatically started.
