Alerts on build servers that start up and shut down on demand

I have Cloud-hosted build servers that I don't want to be running all the time (to save costs).  So, the instances are started when a build has been triggered, and then 10 minutes after the processing completes, the instance is shut down (but not terminated).  I don't want alerts going out when the host is "down".  How can I do that?  I can't find a way to "not care" when a host is "down".  That, or what is the intended way to monitor this kind of host?

Re: Alerts on build servers that start up and shut down on demand

Hi, 

 In AWS Advanced configuration  toggle "Mark stopped resources are maintenance" to Yes. This setting would automatically mark all stopped instances as maintenance and you will not receive any alert if an instance is stopped or disabled. There are other settings here that you can make use of too like the EC2 scheduled events, license related setting and more. 

You can navigate to Advanced Configuration by going to AWS tab > Selecting the account > Serivce View > Hamburger icon > Edit > Advanced configuration (Expand it).

Hope this helps solve your case.
