Amazon Relational Database Service
Command Line Interface Reference (API Version 2014-10-31)


The Amazon RDS Command Line Interface (RDS CLI) has been deprecated. Instead, use the AWS CLI for RDS. To learn how to download and use the AWS CLI, see AWS Command Line Interface User Guide. For RDS commands available in the AWS CLI, see AWS CLI Reference for Amazon RDS.

The AWS CLI does not currently support the DownloadCompleteDBLogFile REST API action. To download an entire log file at once, rather than in parts using the download-db-log-file-portion command, use the last published RDS CLI and the rds-download-db-logfile command.
