AWS Ec2 Status Check Fail Reason


Hello Everyone, I have a t2.xlarge Ec2 instance where i am running my algorithm docker containers. This is spot instance. But sometimes the ec2 instance 2/2 status checks is getting failed and my resources is getting stopped. Previously it used to happen very rarely but recently it started happening regularly. Is there any configuration error i am doing and can you guys help me how to mitigate this error??

Increasingly frequent status check failures on your t2.xlarge spot instance could be due to hardware issues or your instance configuration . Here's a quick approach:

  • Disk Space: Monitor usage and configure docker to clean up old data to avoid filling the disk.
  • Resource Limits: Ensure containers have enough CPU, memory to run smoothly.
  • Updates: Keep OS and software up-to-date with security patches.

Check CloudWatch Logs: Look for errors during boot or instance health messages

Restart the Instance: A simple restart can resolve temporary glitches
