Use boto run user-data in AWS instance

I am using boto to launch the instance run the user-code in the background, but find that it’s not so convenient to debug and get the error information. Here’s finally what I did. Use the traceback to get the error, use smtp to send back the error information to my email. There must be some other cleverer ways to do so, ha ~

key_pair_name = '----'
AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID = '----'
AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY = '----'

ec2conn = EC2Connection(AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID, AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY)

test_script_00 = """#!/bin/bash

test_script_01 = """#!/usr/bin/env python

AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY = '----'

bucket_name = 'demo-test'
conn_s3 = boto.connect_s3(AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID,AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY)
bucket = conn_s3.get_bucket(bucket_name)

k=Key(bucket)
k.key='images/rose111105.jpg'
k.copy('demo-test', 'images/rose111105copy6.jpg')
