describe-instance-credit-specifications

Description

Describes the credit option for CPU usage of one or more of your T2 instances. The credit options are standard and unlimited .

If you do not specify an instance ID, Amazon EC2 returns only the T2 instances with the unlimited credit option. If you specify one or more instance IDs, Amazon EC2 returns the credit option (standard or unlimited ) of those instances. If you specify an instance ID that is not valid, such as an instance that is not a T2 instance, an error is returned.

Recently terminated instances might appear in the returned results. This interval is usually less than one hour.

If an Availability Zone is experiencing a service disruption and you specify instance IDs in the affected zone, or do not specify any instance IDs at all, the call fails. If you specify only instance IDs in an unaffected zone, the call works normally.

For more information, see T2 Instances in the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud User Guide .

Options

--dry-run | --no-dry-run (boolean)

Checks whether you have the required permissions for the action, without actually making the request, and provides an error response. If you have the required permissions, the error response is DryRunOperation . Otherwise, it is UnauthorizedOperation .

--filters (list)

One or more filters.

  • instance-id - The ID of the instance.

Shorthand Syntax:

Name=string,Values=string,string ...

JSON Syntax:

[
  {
    "Name": "string",
    "Values": ["string", ...]
  }
  ...
]

--instance-ids (list)

One or more instance IDs.

Default: Describes all your instances.

Constraints: Maximum 1000 explicitly specified instance IDs.

Syntax:

"string" "string" ...

--max-results (integer)

The maximum number of results to return in a single call. To retrieve the remaining results, make another call with the returned NextToken value. This value can be between 5 and 1000. You cannot specify this parameter and the instance IDs parameter in the same call.

--next-token (string)

The token to retrieve the next page of results.

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.
