Describes the status of one or more instances, including any scheduled events.

Instance status has two main components:

Instance status provides information about four types of scheduled events for an instance that may require your attention:

When your instance is retired, it will either be terminated (if its root device type is the instance-store) or stopped (if its root device type is an EBS volume). Instances stopped due to retirement will not be restarted, but you can do so manually. You can also avoid retirement of EBS-backed instances by manually restarting your instance when its event code is instance-retirement . This ensures that your instance is started on a different underlying host.

For more information about failed status checks, see Troubleshooting Instances with Failed Status Checks in the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud User Guide . For more information about working with scheduled events, see Working with an Instance That Has a Scheduled Event in the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud User Guide .
