App autosleep support

Guillaume Berche


I wonder if there are plans to implement an auto-sleep behavior in
cloudfoundry, in which inactive apps would be automatically stopped after a
max inactivity threshold, and automatically restart upon arrival of traffic
on their routes. Similar to google app engine default behavior [1]

I did not find mentions of this yet in mailing lists and trackers.

We feel at Orange that such feature can improve the density for some of our
non-prod use-cases (with environmental and financial benefits).

I'd like to know if someone in the community already worked on such feature
or would be interested in collaborating on an opensource implementation.

I drafted some specs for a java-based implementation we're planning to work
on [2]. I'd love to hear feedbacks and suggestions on this.

Thanks in advance,
