This topic describes the differences in health checks and auto scaling when you create an application from an image in a cluster of Container Service for Swarm and in a cluster of Container Service for Kubernetes (ACK).

Create an application from an image

The interfaces for creating an application from an image in a Swarm cluster and in an ACK cluster are quite different.

Health check

  • Swarm cluster

    Health checks are implemented by using labels.

  • ACK cluster
    You can configure health check settings on the Container wizard page. You can configure liveness and readiness checks.Container configurationsReadiness check

Auto scaling

  • Swarm cluster

    Supports auto scaling based on the CPU and memory usage.

  • ACK cluster
    On the Advanced wizard page for creating an application from an image, you can enable horizontal scaling for pods based on the CPU and memory usage.Horizontal scaling
