    efficient way to administer or manage an aws autoscaling instance

    I need some advice on how do you efficiently administer an auto scaled instance with the following scenario: (our environment is running with autoscaling, Elastic Load Balancing and cloudwatch)

    (a.) patching the latest version of the OS for patch cycles or security reasons?
    (b.) making a configuration change (like a change of the httpd.conf) and apply it to all instances in the auto-scaling group? with less downtime
    (c.) how do you deploy the latest codes of my apps to the server with less disruption in production?
    (d.) how do you use puppet or chef to automate your admin task?

    I heard about user-data, metadata and cloud-init. But I'm not sure how does it works.

    I would really appreciate if you have anything to share on how you automate your administration task with aws.

    Thanks.
