which instance in an app will be removed?

As I know, I can use api

to scale up/down an app dynamically.

when scaling up, it will be instance1, instance2, instance3

instance3 is the last added instance.

I hope to know when scaling down, which instance in the app will be removed?

Is it the last added instance3 will be removed? or the random one of instance1, instance2, instance3 will be removed?

Hi there,

I believe that when you scale down, the newest containers will be removed.

However, as the container should be immutable the order in which the containers are being removed should not matter as they should be identical.

Hope that this helps. Regards, Bobby
