my machine keeps getting suspended I want to get notified

my machine keeps getting suspended after few days and I want to get notified when this happens is there a setting for that?


suspended means that it was auto-stopped after not receiving any requests for a while. There are no notifications when a machine gets suspended due to auto-stop behavior, since it’s working as configured. That said, if you want the machine to stay up at all times, you can set auto_start_machines and auto_stop_machines to false and then fly deploy to apply the new configuration.

Your current configuration looks like this, notice machines are set to auto_stop and auto_start:

auto_start_machines = true
auto_stop_machines = true
force_https = true
internal_port = 8_080
min_machines_running = 0

Let me know if that clarifies things!

@roadmr thanks for your answer. My app is migrated to v2 but I haven’t changed fly.toml. Here is contents of my fly.toml

# fly.toml file generated for twilight-frog-9274 on 2021-11-21T22:19:05Z

app = "twilight-frog-9274"

kill_signal = "SIGINT"
kill_timeout = 5
processes = []

  PORT = "8080"

  allowed_public_ports = []
  auto_rollback = true

  http_checks = []
  tcp_checks = []
  script_checks = []
  internal_port = 8080
  processes = ["app"]
  protocol = "tcp"

    hard_limit = 25
    soft_limit = 20
    type = "connections"

    handlers = ["tls", "http"]
    port = 443

So there is nothing related with auto-stop behaviour here and this machine occasionally is getting suspeneded which breaks my workflows

Ah, you are right. Since it was just restarted I see no information in the logs about why it might have stopped the last time, is it possible your application exited by itself?

I would suggest keeping an eye on the logs (fly logs) so next time it stops you can look for some clues there, there will be an indication of what happened (for example, if it was stopped automatically it will say “scaling down from 1 to 0 machines”, though as you noted, your config shows that’s not likely the case).

@roadmr when I realise my machine is suspended I go to logs and I can’t see anything in there. I think its very important to be able to get some kind of alert when machine changes its state. Now I have to implement my own alarm/health check here.
