ec2-describe-instance-status - Describe the status for instances and see if there are any associated events
ec2dins ([ec2-describe-instance-status]) ec2dins [GENERAL OPTIONS] [-h] [INSTANCE [INSTANCE [...]]]
Any command option/parameter may be passed a value of '-' to indicate that values for that option should be read from stdin.
Describe the status for one or more instances. Checks are performed on your instances to determine if they are in running order or not. Use this command to see the result of these instance checks so that you can take remedial action if possible. There are two types of checks performed: INSTANCE and SYSTEM. INSTANCE checks examine the health and reachability of the application environment. SYSTEM checks examine the health of the infrastructure surrounding your instance. How Retirement Works: --------------------- It may happen the instance host becomes unhealthy, requiring all instances on that host to be evicted at a future point in time. Your instance(s) will be marked as RETIRING, with the date of when they will be forcefully evicted from the host. Your instance will not be restarted if it is forcefully evicted from a retiring host. Avoid eviction by manually restarting your instance when it shows as RETIRING. This ensures your instance is started on a healthy host. How Events Work: ---------------- An event is a reminder of an operation that will affect this instance. The fields NotBefore and NotAfter indicate the scheduled date that the event comes into effect: * NotBefore: the event will not occur before this time * NotAfter: the event will not occur after this time
-O, --aws-access-key KEY AWS Access Key ID. Defaults to the value of the AWS_ACCESS_KEY environment variable (if set). -W, --aws-secret-key KEY AWS Secret Access Key. Defaults to the value of the AWS_SECRET_KEY environment variable (if set). -T, --security-token TOKEN AWS delegation token. Defaults to the value of the AWS_DELEGATION_TOKEN environment variable (if set). -K, --private-key KEY [DEPRECATED] Specify KEY as the private key to use. Defaults to the value of the EC2_PRIVATE_KEY environment variable (if set). Overrides the default. -C, --cert CERT [DEPRECATED] Specify CERT as the X509 certificate to use. Defaults to the value of the EC2_CERT environment variable (if set). Overrides the default. -U, --url URL Specify URL as the web service URL to use. Defaults to the value of 'https://ec2.amazonaws.com' (us-east-1) or to that of the EC2_URL environment variable (if set). Overrides the default. --region REGION Specify REGION as the web service region to use. This option will override the URL specified by the "-U URL" option and EC2_URL environment variable. This option defaults to the region specified by the EC2_URL environment variable or us-east-1 if this environment variable is not set. -D, --auth-dry-run Check if you can perform the requested action rather than actually performing it. -v, --verbose Verbose output. -?, --help Display this help. -H, --headers Display column headers. --debug Display additional debugging information. --show-empty-fields Indicate empty fields. --hide-tags Do not display tags for tagged resources. --connection-timeout TIMEOUT Specify a connection timeout TIMEOUT (in seconds). --request-timeout TIMEOUT Specify a request timeout TIMEOUT (in seconds).
-I, --hide-healthy Hide instances where all status checks pass. -A, --include-all-instances List all instances, not just those that are running. -F, --filter FILTER Add a filter criterion for the result-set.
