Elastic configurations

An elastic configuration is a set of properties that define the resources that you provision to create an elastic cluster. The properties that you configure in an elastic configuration depend on the cloud platform.
Create an elastic configuration on the Elastic Clusters page. When you configure the properties in the elastic configuration, you additionally associate the configuration with a runtime environment. You can also select the cluster shutdown method that the Secure Agent uses to determine when to stop the cluster. You can select one of the following cluster shutdown methods:
After you create the configuration, use the page to view a summary of the configurations that are available in your organization. The summary includes information that you can quickly reference, such as the node instance types and the minimum and maximum number of nodes that the cluster can have.
The following image shows the Elastic Clusters page:
The Elastic Clusters page shows all elastic configurations that can be used to create an elastic cluster. You can view summary details for each elastic configuration, including the runtime environment, master and worker instance types, minimum and maximum worker nodes, the description, and the last updated date and time.
To run an elastic job using the elastic configuration, use the runtime environment that is associated with the elastic configuration.
If you edit the elastic configuration when the elastic cluster is running, you must stop the cluster for the changes in the configuration to take effect. When you stop the cluster, the cluster is deleted and the running elastic jobs are stopped. The cluster starts up again when you run another elastic job.
You can delete an elastic configuration only when the Secure Agent is running. When you delete a configuration, all provisioned resources are automatically deleted. If the agent is not running and you want to delete the provisioned resources, run the commands to list and delete clusters. For more information about the commands, see Command reference.
