Long reboot time with RancherOS AMI

When rebooting a RancherOS AMI through AWS EC2, reboot times seem crazy long.

60+ seconds vs the 5 seconds I’m seeing locally.

I first noticed this after rebooting post-upgrade to 3.3 and thought it might be because the update process was doing something extra. But even a standard sudo reboot does the same thing.

Is this an overhead that EC2 adds, or something in the AMI itself?


There is some overhead with EC2 machines, so I don’t believe it’s RancherOS specific. I’ve always noticed that it takes longer.

I don’t believe there is anything different/special in the AMI that would cause a longer reboot time. Unless you changed your console or added services and it needs to download those new images.
