You have a Linux EC2 web server that suddenly is timing out on all HTTP requests and your SSH connection attempts are timing out. You notice that it is failing the system status check in the EC2 console. What action should you take?

  • Restore the instance from the last AMI image. System status checks indicate that the filesystem on the instance is corrupted.
  • Stop and start the instance. This will move the instance to another host.
  • Contact AWS support. Failing a system status check indicates a failure in the underlying hardware and must be addressed by an AWS representative.
  • Reboot the instance. This will stop and start the instance and move it to another host.
