Specific links you will want to bookmark for future use
App teams: "we cannot have these X number of vms down at the same time"
Infra engineers: "we cannot support manual policy creation for each execution schedule for each set of X VMs to reboot in the same CHG window"
We have many use cases for applications that need to be staggered when we perform maintenances that require reboots. It would be great if we could have a way to create groups for these apps and allow a configuration field that allows you to adjust several things
Turn on/off staggered reboot
Specify how many (and which, perhaps by regex or assigning order or something) VMs at maximum can be down at one time
The minimum amount of time after previous VMs are up until it triggers the next set, until execution schedule is over.
Ex: Group of VM1-VM6, only 2 can be down at once, staggered an hour apart. GroupMembership=(VM[1-6]), MaxPerCycle=2, CycleTime=60 (min)
