Again on Amazon EC2

Fabrizio Giudici
As I've previously written, I wasn't able to run yet Hudson on EC2
because an invalid key or such. I've still to understand what's
happening. In any case, the EC2 installation is not appearing at all
among the list of slaves.

You can image my surprise when I discovered that I've been billed $7.70
from Amazon :-)

Amazon EC2 running Linux/UNIX
            $0.40 per Large Instance (m1.large) instance-hour (or
partial hour)     16 Hrs     6.40
      Amazon EC2 Bandwidth
            $0.100 per GB Internet Data Transfer - all data transfer
into Amazon EC2     0.000430 GB     0.01
            $0.170 per GB Internet Data Transfer - first 10 TB / month
data transfer out of Amazon EC2     0.000932 GB     0.01




16 hours of what?!?!?

Fabrizio,

I don't think this is a Hudson problem; try searching the EC2
documentation at http://aws.amazon.com/documentation/ or the user forums
at http://developer.amazonwebservices.com/connect/forum.jspa?forumID=30 
if you are having trouble accessing your EC2 instance.

You do need to monitor your running instances and shut them down when
they are not being used; otherwise (as you just found out) you'll be
billed per instance hour.

Gareth,

I know how EC2 bills. My point is that I'm not using EC2 in any other
way than Hudson, and the only thing that could have started those
instances is my Hudson. OTOH, it fails the configuration and doesn't
offer me that node for running processes. I'm wondering whether there's
a Hudson bug that in some way consumes CPU hours of EC2, but doesn't
make them available to my jobs.
