I'm planning to move our web site to Windows Azure and run it has a Cloud Service / Web Role. I have run some load testing and it works ok but at the moment i have some issues with the scaling features.
When i run a load test for an hour or so i see that our instance CPU is going up to 90% more or less right away. I have enabled auto-scale but it takes a looooonnngg time before Azure actually add a new instance. I think i read somewhere that the CPU metrics it used is based on 45 minutes of load and that seems kind of useless if your CPU has to run on 90% for 45 minutes before it actually scales up? Can i change this time frame somewhere?
