The Amazon Elastic Container Service (Amazon ECS) service scheduler now allows you to define a grace period to prevent premature shutdown of newly instantiated tasks.

Previously, if Amazon ECS tasks took a long time to start, Elastic Load Balancing (ELB) health checks could mark the task as unhealthy and the service scheduler would shut the task down prematurely.

Now, you can specify a health check grace period as an Amazon ECS service definition parameter. This instructs the service scheduler to ignore ELB health checks for a pre-defined time period after a task has been instantiated. EC2-logo-full
