       Launch instances of a machine image

   positional arguments:
       IMAGE  ID of the image to instantiate (required)

   optional arguments:
       -n MIN[-MAX], --instance-count MIN[-MAX]
              number  of  instances to launch. If this number of instances cannot be launched, no
              instances will launch. If specified as a range (min-max), the server  will  attempt
              to launch the maximum number, but no fewer than the minimum number.

       -g GROUP, --group GROUP
              security group(s) in which to launch the instances

       -k KEYPAIR, --key KEYPAIR
              name of the key pair to use

       -d DATA, --user-data DATA
              user data to make available to instances in this reservation

       --user-data-force DATA
              same as -d/--user-data, but without checking if a file by that name exists first

       -f FILE, --user-data-file FILE
              file containing user data to make available to the instances in this reservation

       --addressing {public,private}
              [Eucalyptus  only, non-VPC only] addressing scheme to launch the instance with. Use
              "private" to run an instance with no public address.

       -t INSTANCETYPE, --instance-type INSTANCETYPE
              type of instance to launch

       -z ZONE, --availability-zone ZONE

       --kernel KERNEL
              ID of the kernel to launch the instance(s) with

       --ramdisk RAMDISK
              ID of the ramdisk to launch the instance(s) with

       -b DEVICE=MAPPED, --block-device-mapping DEVICE=MAPPED
              define a block device mapping for the instances, in the form  DEVICE=MAPPED,  where
              "MAPPED"            is            "none",            "ephemeral(0-3)",           or

       -m, --monitor
              enable detailed monitoring for the instance(s)

              prevent API users from terminating the instance(s)

       --instance-initiated-shutdown-behavior {stop,terminate}
              whether to "stop" (default) or terminate EBS instances when they shut down

       --placement-group PLGROUP
              name of a placement group to launch into

       --tenancy {default,dedicated}
              [VPC only] "dedicated" to run on single-tenant hardware

       --client-token TOKEN
              unique identifier to ensure request idempotency

       -s SUBNET, --subnet SUBNET
              [VPC only] subnet to create the instance's network interface in

       --associate-public-ip-address ASSOCIATE_PUBLIC_IP_ADDRESS
              [VPC only] assign a public address to the instance's network interface

       --private-ip-address ADDRESS
              [VPC only] assign a specific primary private IP address to an instance's interface

       --secondary-address ADDRESS, --secondary-private-ip-address ADDRESS
              [VPC only] assign a specific secondary private IP address to an instance's  network
              interface. Use this option multiple times to add additional addresses.

       --secondary-count COUNT, --secondary-private-ip-address-count COUNT
              [VPC only] automatically assign a specific number of secondary private IP addresses
              to an instance's network interface

       -a INTERFACE, --network-interface INTERFACE
              [VPC only] add a network interface to the new instance. If  the  interface  already
              exists,  supply  its  ID  and a numeric index for it, separated by ":", in the form
              "eni-NNNNNNNN:INDEX". To create a new interface, supply a numeric index and  subnet
              ID  for  it,  along  with  (in order) an optional description, a primary private IP
              address, a list of security group IDs to associate with the interface,  whether  to
              delete  the  interface  upon  instance termination ("true" or "false"), a number of
              secondary private IP addresses to create automatically, and  a  list  of  secondary
              private  IP  addresses  to  assign  to the interface, separated by ":", in the form
              ":INDEX:SUBNET:[DESCRIPT     ION]:[PRIV_IP]:[GROUP1,GROUP2,...]:[true|false]:[SEC_I
              P_COUNT|:SEC_IP1,SEC_IP2,...]".  You  cannot  specify  both of the latter two. This
              option may be used multiple times. Each adds another network interface.

       -p IPROFILE, --iam-profile IPROFILE
              name or ARN of the IAM instance profile to associate with the new instance(s)

              optimize the new instance(s) for EBS I/O

              show empty values as "(nil)"

       -U URL, --url URL
              compute service endpoint URL

       --region USER@REGION
              region and/or user names to search when looking up config file data

       -S KEY, --secret-key KEY

       --security-token TOKEN

              show debugging output

              launch interactive debugger on error

       -h, --help
              show this help message and exit
