New feature: ECS console supports the Cloud Assistant. Cloud Assistant is a lightweight and convenient maintenance ECS feature for automated and batched invocation of daily maintenance tasks. You need to install the Cloud Assistant client on ECS instances. Note: For ECS instances that are created after Dec 1, 2017, the Cloud Assistant client is installed by default on these instances. Then you can run Batch/PowerShell (for Windows instances) scripts or Shell scripts (for Linux instances) on one or more running ECS instances in the ECS console or by calling APIs. The invocation is exclusive to individual instances to complete tasks rapidly. You can also set command invocation to the periodical mode to keep the ECS instance at a specific status or run the command as a daemon for ECS instances. Cloud Assistant does not initiate any operations.
