expanded options for aggressiveness, rate of resize and observation period
Currently, Virtual machine aggressiveness, rate of resize, and observation period are set for all types of actions CPU, Memory, Up, and Down. There is no way to have these configured differently for each type of action.
So at the moment, VM will scale up and down at the same rate. Making some environments scale exsesivly. With downscale action needing downtime, some customers would like to have these scale at a slower rate and use a more extended observation period to help reduce changes and less downtime for the virtual machines.
What would make this better is to have more granularity on these, e.g. rates of resize up and rate of resize down, etc., even to the different types of action e.g. rate or resize CPU Up vs Memory.
