Application: Systems and methods for automatically scaling clusters or applications in a cloud environment (Patent ID: US20240095073A1)

The patent by Citrix Systems Inc. describes systems and methods for automatic cluster scaling. The processor receives metrics for a cluster of computing devices and an application version, aggregates these metrics to establish a third metric, and increases the cluster size if the third metric exceeds a threshold proportional to the cluster's capacity. The method involves calculating the difference between the third metric and the threshold to determine the number of computing devices to add to the cluster, deploying the application version to each device upon increasing the cluster size, and adjusting the application's configuration based on metrics related to its performance.

The system includes a computing device with a processor that performs the functions of receiving metrics and application versions, determining the third metric, checking if it exceeds the threshold, and increasing the cluster size accordingly. Additionally, the processor calculates the difference between the third metric and the threshold to determine the number of devices to add to the cluster. Another aspect of the patent involves adjusting the application's configuration based on metrics related to its performance, such as memory allocation, to optimize its operation without necessarily changing the cluster size.
