comment Spot instances frequently terminated in AWS auto scaling group (failing system health check)
@DerekMorrison - I see; the spot price history for m3.xlarge in us-east-1 has been >= $1 in the last weeks in some AZs in fact (please beware of the difference between EC2 classic and VPC in this regard), but given your extensive debugging effort, you have presumably looked very closely already ;) - I've updated my answer with another frequently encountered reason for spot instance terminations and options how to gain more insight into the actual cause by tracking your spot request bids.
