      EC2, creating a cdh hadoop cluster

      Description

      In about 1 out of every 5-7 attempts, whirr will hang while creating a spot-priced cluster in EC2. The process just sits there, consuming no system resources and writing nothing to stderr or stdout. In each case, some number of cluster nodes are up and running.

      This happened again to me today, and whirr was hung for about 4 hours. As usual, there were a bunch of errors logged while it was trying to create the instances. About 10 minutes in, though, whirr just went radio silent and stayed that way until I killed it.

      I'll attached the output – it looks similar to the other instances where whirr has had this problem.
