Increasing Cyral sidecar capacity to support a higher query volume

If you need to support a higher volume of activity with your sidecar, you can increase the number of sidecar instances in the AWS Auto Scaling group. 


Procedure

Edit the deployment template for your automation platform, like sidecar.tf or cft_sidecar.yaml. In the module "cyral_sidecar," add the following variable assignments. Below, we show examples for Terraform and CloudFormation environments:


Terraform:

asg_min = X

asg_desired = Y

asg_max = Z


CloudFormation:

MinSize = X

DesiredCapacity = Y

MaxSize = Z


Where X is the minimum, Y is the desired, and Z is the maximum number of instances you want to have in the sidecar ASG.
