VM::EC2::State::Reason - Object describing the reason for an EC2 instance state change

  use VM::EC2;
  $ec2      = VM::EC2->new(...);
  $instance = $ec2->describe_instances(-instance_id=>'i-12345');
  $reason   = $instance->reason;
  $code     = $reason->code;
  $message  = $reason->message;

This object represents the reason that an Amazon EC2 instance underwent a state change. It is returned by calling the reason() method of VM::EC2::Instance.

These object methods are supported:
 code           -- The state change reason code.
 message        -- The state change reason method.
The following table lists the codes and messages (source:
