Here's a question: We want to move our AppEngine service from being manually scalable to being auto scalable. By doing this, we found that, when there's not enough traffic to our app, the instances are moved to sleep mode. We tried to avoid this behavior and still get auto scaling by having a cronjob that pings our server every certain minutes, just as a "keep alive" solution to this problem. Is this the correct solution to avoid having sleep mode instances, and always have at least 1 active instance, or is there a better option ? Thanks!
