I'm starting a Windows stock image via Bamboo. The instance starts up relatively quickly, but the elastic agent hangs and then shuts down 40 minutes later. This has happened multiple times - it always shuts down after 40 minutes. Take a look at the log:

Apr 21, 2015 10:12:11 AM Requested that new elastic instance be created for configuration: Windows stock image / ami-6697dd0e
Apr 21, 2015 10:12:11 AM Elastic instance [i-f3118c0e] transitioned from STARTING to IDENTIFIED.
Apr 21, 2015 10:12:32 AM Elastic instance [i-f3118c0e] transitioned from IDENTIFIED to RUNNING.
Apr 21, 2015 10:52:55 AM Elastic instance [i-f3118c0e] transitioned from RUNNING to SHUTTING_DOWN.
Apr 21, 2015 10:53:35 AM Elastic instance [i-f3118c0e] transitioned from SHUTTING_DOWN to TERMINATED.
Apr 21, 2015 10:53:35 AM Detected that the elastic instance [i-f3118c0e] has been terminated.

I have edited the Bamboo Elastic Configuration variable "Idle agent shutdown delay" to be 1000 minutes. It was previously 40. I saw no indication that the Bamboo server needed to be restarted to apply this.

Why does it shut down consistently after 40 minutes?


This is an issue that will be fixed in Bamboo 5.9. Refer to this bug. You will need to make a custom image configuration using the AMI appropriate to your region. Here are the fixed AMIs from a comment in the bug:
