    What's the difference between using the ECS health check and EC2 health check when using Spotinst for an ECS cluster? As far as I know ECS only supports healthchecks for apps (containers) but not for the cluster itself.

    Hi Sven,

    ECS health checks will verify an instance is registered and healthy within the cluster. It is not reliant on any AWS provided feature and is unique to Elastigroups as part of the cluster management solution.

     

    We rely on ECS Describe Container Instances and specifically AgentConnected and status keys to verify a node is healthy.
