                attrs.put(Node.NODE_ATTRIBUTES.getKey() + "aws_availability_zone"; metadataResult);
            }
        } catch (final IOException e) {
            // this is lenient so the plugin does not fail when installed outside of ec2
            logger.error("failed to get metadata for [placement/availability-zone]"; e);
