I have autoscaling working with Heat, but I need to know how the downscale chooses a resource (in my case, a VM) to delete or if there is a graceful method in place already. I'd like a way to make sure that connections are not dropped as a result of the downscale. Thanks.

It would be up to your service shutdown scripts to stop accepting new connections and gracefully close existing connections on shutdown. I believe heat will shutdown the oldest server first.

Thanks, @Steve Baker. Is there a way to change the Heat Downscale policy to choose a different VM, more intelligently?
