  • Go to EC2 instances screen

    Watching the job flow's progress is useful, but you'll need some details about the particular EC2 instance serving as the head node in your cluster.  Therefore, click the traingle to the right of the Services menu option, then click on the EC2 option in the resulting drop-down panel.

  • Select instances

    There's one more step required to get to a status screen for your running EC2 instances: in the EC2 dashboard, click the Instances link along the left bav bar.

  • Instances screen

    In the instances screen, select your instance from the top grid.  As soon as you do, details about your instance appear below.  One such detail is the instance's Internet host name, which you can select and copy.  Once the status of your instance is "running," you're ready to connect to the cluster and start using it.
