       VM::EC2::Spot::InstanceRequest - Object describing an Amazon EC2 spot instance request


       See "SPOT INSTANCES" in VM::EC2.


       This object represents an Amazon EC2 spot instance request, which is returned by
       VM::EC2->request_spot_instances() and VM::EC2->describe_spot_instance_requests().


       These object methods are supported:

        spotInstanceRequestId       -- ID of this spot instance request

        spotPrice   -- The maximum hourly price for any spot
                       instance launched under this request,
                       in USD.

                       'one-time' or 'persistent'.

        state       -- The state of this request, one of 'open',
                       'closed', 'fulfilled', 'cancelled' or 'failed'.

        fault       -- Fault code for the request, if any, an
                       instance of VM::EC2::Error.

        status      -- The status code and status message describing the
                       Spot Instance request.

        validFrom   -- Start date and time of the request.

        validUntil  -- Date and time that the request expires.

        launchGroup -- Launch group of the instances run under this request.
                       Instances in the same launch group are launched
                       and terminated together.

        launchedAvailabilityZone -- Availability zone of launched instance.

        availabilityZoneGroup -- Availability zone group of the instances
                       run under this request. Instances in the same
                       availability zone group will always be launched
                       into the same availability zone.

        launchSpecification -- Additional information for launching
                       instances, represented as a VM::EC2::Spot::LaunchSpecificaton

        instanceId  -- The instance ID, if an instance has been launched as a

Convenience Methods

       This class supports the standard tagging interface. In addition it provides the following
       convenience method:

   $instance = $request->instance
       If an instance was launched as a result of this request, the instance() method will return
       the corresponding VM::EC2::Instance object.

   $state  = $request->current_status
       Refreshes the request information and returns its status as a VM::EC2::Spot::Status.  This
       will string interpolate as the status code, such as "fulfilled". You may also call its
       object methods to get the time of the last update and full message.

   $state  = $request->current_state
       Refreshes the request information and returns its state, such as "open".

       Refreshes the request information.
