problems when adding a node to the cluster
This archive was generated by
today I tried to add a spot instance node to a cluster with the following
starcluster addnode -b 0.25 -I c3.4xlarge chemistrycluster
The first part of the output is as follows:
>>> Launching node(s): node003
>>> Creating placement group _at_sc-chemistrycluster...
>>> Waiting for spot requests to propagate...
>>> Waiting for node(s) to come up... (updating every 30s)
>>> Waiting for open spot requests to become active...
2/3 |\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ | 66%
The program came relatively quickly to "Waiting for open spot requests to
become active...", but thereafter it did not progress for several hours. In
the end I had to cancel the program because I had to leave for the day.
What is causing the program to wait for open spot request to become active?
Is it because of the spot bid? Should I change the spot bid?
Thanks in advance for your help.
