A scheduling script for aws ec2 instances

Project Description

# Uniplaces AWS Scheduler

The AWS Scheduler is a script that given a set of profiles schedule the uptime of ec2 instances.

## Getting Started

Install through pip.

pip install aws-ec2-scheduler

The initial configuration is done in the `aws.conf` file. Copy the `aws.conf.dist`
to `aws.conf` and configure with the right credentials.
By default `aws.conf` reads schedule profiles from `scheduler.json` but you can change
the directory from where you want to load the profiles.

To run the scheduler just run

ec2scheduler -c path/to/config_file

#### Profiles

The scheduler expects you to create profiles to start and stop the machines.

You can just copy the `scheduler.json.dist` and start creating your new profiles from there.

```
{
"profiles": [ // an array of profiles
{
"name": "staging", // profile name
"region": "us-west-1", // aws region
"schedule": { // weekday schedule
"monday": {
"start": 9, // start hour
"stop": 19 // stop hour
},
"tuesday": {
"start": 9,
"stop": 19
},
"wednesday": {
"start": 9,
"stop": 19
},
"thursday": {
"start": 9,
"stop": 19
},
"friday": {
"start": 9,
"stop": 19
},
"saturday": {
"start": 9,
"stop": 19
},
"sunday": {
"start": 9,
"stop": 19
}
},
"instance_tags": [ // tags from the instances you want to attach this profile schedule
"jobs-staging", // this tag should be the name of the instance tag:Name
"admin-staging",
"reports-staging"
],
"elb_names": [ // add this configuration if you want to reregister this elb instances
"example-tag-elb-name"
]
}
]
}
```
