For the past two mornings I have been unable to log into (establish an ssh connection) to an Amazon EC2 instance running the Bitnami node stack (based on Ubuntu) for several minutes.
After a few minutes of retrying I was able to log in via ssh. None of my browsers (on OSX) seems to want to use Java to load AWS's own web based console so I was unable to test if the problem is on my own machine.
The instance was listed as running in AWS console throughout and upon logging in. There was no high CPU usage (looked using
top) or fill disk (
df -k lists 27% usage).
I would like to know where to start looking in the logs to find out why I was unable to log in.
For clarity, I am logging in using terminal on OSX 10.8.5
