[Starcluster] Spot instances
This archive was generated by
As I am finding new features in AWS, I come up with new ideas.
I have read on the mailinglist that adding and removing nodes to/from
a cluster is a planned feature.
Now I was wondering if this could be tied into the "spot instances".
So, I would start a normal instance as master and as many spot
instances as I get (for my price) as nodes.
This might lead to some jobs crashing when spot instances are killed
(without warning)... ideally, SGE would notice that the jobs crashed
and restart them.
