See https://aws.amazon.com/blogs/aws/new-ec2-spot-instance-termination-notices/?sc_ichannel=em&sc_icountry=global&sc_icampaigntype=launch&sc_icampaign=em_130420040&sc_idetail=em_1040521286&ref_=pe_395030_130420040_8 We could check http://169.254.169.254/latest/meta-data/spot/termination-time and figure out whether the instances is scheduled to be killed. Halting the instance would prevent possible job termination and retries. Also, it would be great to call "poweroff" after some time out (sleep 5m?) to allow us to login to the instances in case something is wrong.
