If you’re using Scout’s cloud server functionality, you know that new server instances in Scout are named after the machine’s hostname.
In some cases, the hostname isn’t that useful (especially if your servers are on EC2). Now, you can specify a name for the server from the Scout command:
scout --name="Memcached server" KEY ...
... for example, would name the new instance ”Memcached server”. Documentation on naming your server from the scout command is here.
As always, drop us an email if you have any questions!
