  • AWS Lambda Cold Start Times | 2021-10-12
    The big issue with ECS+Fargate is the lack of CPU bursting capability. This means that if you want to run a small service that doesn't consume much, you have two options:

    1. Use a 0.25cpu + 0.5gb ram configuration and accept that your responses are now 4 times slower because the 25% time is strictly enforced.

    2. Use a 1cpu + 2gb ram (costing 4 times more) even though it is very under-utilized.

    AWS is definitely in no rush to fix this, as they keep saying they are aware of the issue and "thinking about it". No commitment or solution on sight though:

  • AWS Lambda Functions now powered by AWS Graviton2 processor | 2021-09-30
    Yes, the github issue is here:
  • What is the maximum nofile I can set for containers using fargate? | 2021-09-27
    Judging by the discussion at GitHub and this specific comment it is the maximum.
  • Question about Fargate pricing | 2021-09-19
    I do wish they had a burstable CPU option, that could save a lot of money. Even made a request for it.

  • ECR in larger organisations - looking for opinions | 2021-08-16
    Is working with ECR as a developer PITA or is it pleasant? Are you happy with ECR as Ops or are you missing self hosted Docker Registry? Is AWS SSO + IAM enough to conveniently manage authorization? How good/useful is container image scanning? Any other rants and raves? Opinions from all perspectives are welcome, especially if you have a centralised ECR in a larger organisation. Issues like this one gave me concerns, hence I posted this opinion-based question.
  • How to submit a feature request? | 2021-07-21
    For containers and various other stuff like CloudFormation you can make requests in public repos like via the aws-containers-roadmap -
  • AWS has Dynamo, Google Cloud GKE | 2021-06-25
    And last but not the least - the thing that you mentioned to me are irrelevant. You dont provision nor update the cluster every day. With rolling update and new nodes replacing old ones I dont really care how long the upgrade takes. I recon you are not going to create clusters 20 times a day so Id say that thing is irrelevant. Focus on capabilities you need and that you lack. Check out this for anything you are missing :
  • Need help with scaling dockers on ECS | 2021-06-10
    That said, if you have a large image it can take some time to download to the Fargate instance. So there may still be delays. There’s an open issue for caching on the public containers roadmap.
  • I keep hearing IPv6 reduces the size of routing tables by letting the ISPs aggregate their customers prefixes. How does this differ from route summarization in IPv4? | 2021-06-08
    Things aren't perfect, by any means, and I don't mean to sound like I'm schilling for my employer. It's frustrating to me, as a user, that AWS API endpoints remain v4-only. IPv6 address assignment is still clunky, with most operations happening at the /128 level (although that is changing)
  • AWS ECR - How to get last-pull-datetime per repository? | 2021-05-31
    This is a big feature that has been missing from ECR since the inception of lifecycle policies, you could implement some sort of custom logic by parsing cloud trail logs for download(s) within the specified time frame. Couple of folks have also created feature requests within the container roadmap repo to hopefully get this functionality added:
  • Aurora serverless V2 approximate release date | 2021-05-01
  • Any good resources for setting up a (production-ish grade) dual-stack cluster?
    Managed clusters seem to be out: - EKS doesn't support it yet, though it seems it's at least on their radar - AKS does not support them and I couldn't find any public plans - GCP doesn't even have IPv6 support for virtual machines, let alone GKE
  • Are you running EKS with fargate? | 2021-03-22
    Have you ever had issues with spot not being to allocate compute and fargate not scaling up because it wants to bring a spot unit online but can't, and gets stuck? Referring to this.
