Spot Fleet event types - Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud

Spot Fleet event types

There are five Spot Fleet event types. For each event type, there are several sub-types.

The events are sent to EventBridge in JSON format. The following fields in the event form the event pattern that is defined in the rule, and which trigger an action:

"source": "aws.ec2spotfleet"

Identifies that the event is from Spot Fleet.

"detail-type": "EC2 Spot Fleet State Change"

Identifies the event type.

"detail": { "sub-type": "submitted" }

Identifies the event sub-type.

EC2 Spot Fleet State Change

Spot Fleet sends an EC2 Spot Fleet State Change event to Amazon EventBridge when a Spot Fleet changes state.

The following is example data for this event.

{ "version": "0", "id": "d1af1091-6cc3-2e24-203a-3b870e455d5b", "detail-type": "EC2 Spot Fleet State Change", "source": "aws.ec2spotfleet", "account": "123456789012", "time": "2020-11-09T08:57:06Z", "region": "us-east-1", "resources": [ "arn:aws:ec2:us-east-1:123456789012:spot-fleet-request/sfr-4b6d274d-0cea-4b2c-b3be-9dc627ad1f55" ], "detail": { "sub-type": "submitted" } }

The possible values for sub-type are:

submitted

The Spot Fleet request is being evaluated and Amazon EC2 is preparing to launch the target number of instances.

active

The Spot Fleet request has been validated and Amazon EC2 is attempting to maintain the target number of running Spot Instances.
