  • EC2
  • libvirt
    • KVM

Open defects

Latent build slaves shut down uncleanly and get forgotten by the master
start_instance on a latent BuildSlave called before stop_instance finished
Buildbot doesn't terminate latent EC2 servers upon shutdown
LatentSlaveBuilder status does not get reset to LATENT when detached
Flexibility to Stop or Terminate LatentSlave as load drops
