Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 472847
Last modified: 2013-10-23 19:11:39 EDT
Description of problem:
We need a small section or perhaps little hint box for taking advantage of EC2's different machine sizes:
EC2 provides several options including instance types: small, large and extra large.
The default instance type is small and assumes an i386 architecture. If the AMI you wish to deploy in the cloud is x86_64 then you will need to set the following value in your job submission:
amazon_instance_type = large
For more information on instance types see:
You may be using the wrong instance type if you see a message like this in your job ClassAd when you run <code>condor_q -l<code>
HoldReason = "The requested instance type's architecture (i386) does not match the architecture in the manifest for ami-bda347d4 (x86_64)"
Lana, is this too much for a hint? Should it be a section at the end of the basic steps?
May want to add this. There are actually five types (sorry Lana)
Valid amazon_instance_type settings are:
m1.small - i386 instance with 1 compute unit
m1.large - x86_64 instance with 4 compute units
m1.xlarge - x86_64 instance with 8 compute units
c1.medium - i386 instance with 5 compute units
c1.xlarge - x86_64 instance with 20 compute units
For more detailed technical information on the instance types see:
[So fix the one above that says: large to m1.large]
It's in. Available for review shortly.
