update-container-instances-state

Description

Modifies the status of an Amazon ECS container instance.

You can change the status of a container instance to DRAINING to manually remove an instance from a cluster, for example to perform system updates, update the Docker daemon, or scale down the cluster size.

When you set a container instance to DRAINING , Amazon ECS prevents new tasks from being scheduled for placement on the container instance and replacement service tasks are started on other container instances in the cluster if the resources are available. Service tasks on the container instance that are in the PENDING state are stopped immediately.

Service tasks on the container instance that are in the RUNNING state are stopped and replaced according the service's deployment configuration parameters, minimumHealthyPercent and maximumPercent . Note that you can change the deployment configuration of your service using update-service .

  • If minimumHealthyPercent is below 100%, the scheduler can ignore desiredCount temporarily during task replacement. For example, desiredCount is four tasks, a minimum of 50% allows the scheduler to stop two existing tasks before starting two new tasks. If the minimum is 100%, the service scheduler can't remove existing tasks until the replacement tasks are considered healthy. Tasks for services that do not use a load balancer are considered healthy if they are in the RUNNING state. Tasks for services that use a load balancer are considered healthy if they are in the RUNNING state and the container instance they are hosted on is reported as healthy by the load balancer.
  • The maximumPercent parameter represents an upper limit on the number of running tasks during task replacement, which enables you to define the replacement batch size. For example, if desiredCount of four tasks, a maximum of 200% starts four new tasks before stopping the four tasks to be drained (provided that the cluster resources required to do this are available). If the maximum is 100%, then replacement tasks can't start until the draining tasks have stopped.

Any PENDING or RUNNING tasks that do not belong to a service are not affected; you must wait for them to finish or stop them manually.

A container instance has completed draining when it has no more RUNNING tasks. You can verify this using list-tasks .

When you set a container instance to ACTIVE , the Amazon ECS scheduler can begin scheduling tasks on the instance again.

Synopsis

  update-container-instances-state
[--cluster <value>]
--container-instances <value>
--status <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--cluster (string)

The short name or full Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the cluster that hosts the container instance to update. If you do not specify a cluster, the default cluster is assumed.

--container-instances (list)

A list of container instance IDs or full Amazon Resource Name (ARN) entries.

Syntax:

"string" "string" ...

--status (string)

The container instance state with which to update the container instance.

Possible values:

  • ACTIVE
  • DRAINING

--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.

Output

containerInstances -> (list)

The list of container instances.

(structure)

An EC2 instance that is running the Amazon ECS agent and has been registered with a cluster.

containerInstanceArn -> (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the container instance. The ARN contains the arn:aws:ecs namespace, followed by the region of the container instance, the AWS account ID of the container instance owner, the container-instance namespace, and then the container instance ID. For example, ``arn:aws:ecs:region :aws_account_id :container-instance/container_instance_ID `` .

ec2InstanceId -> (string)

The EC2 instance ID of the container instance.

version -> (long)

The version counter for the container instance. Every time a container instance experiences a change that triggers a CloudWatch event, the version counter is incremented. If you are replicating your Amazon ECS container instance state with CloudWatch events, you can compare the version of a container instance reported by the Amazon ECS APIs with the version reported in CloudWatch events for the container instance (inside the detail object) to verify that the version in your event stream is current.

versionInfo -> (structure)

The version information for the Amazon ECS container agent and Docker daemon running on the container instance.

agentVersion -> (string)

The version number of the Amazon ECS container agent.

agentHash -> (string)

The Git commit hash for the Amazon ECS container agent build on the amazon-ecs-agent GitHub repository.

dockerVersion -> (string)

The Docker version running on the container instance.

remainingResources -> (list)

For most resource types, this parameter describes the remaining resources of the container instance that are available for new tasks. For port resource types, this parameter describes the ports that are reserved by the Amazon ECS container agent and any containers that have reserved port mappings; any port that is not specified here is available for new tasks.

(structure)

Describes the resources available for a container instance.

name -> (string)

The name of the resource, such as cpu , memory , ports , or a user-defined resource.

type -> (string)

The type of the resource, such as INTEGER , DOUBLE , LONG , or STRINGSET .

doubleValue -> (double)

When the doubleValue type is set, the value of the resource must be a double precision floating-point type.

longValue -> (long)

When the longValue type is set, the value of the resource must be an extended precision floating-point type.

integerValue -> (integer)

When the integerValue type is set, the value of the resource must be an integer.

stringSetValue -> (list)

When the stringSetValue type is set, the value of the resource must be a string type.

(string)

registeredResources -> (list)

For most resource types, this parameter describes the registered resources on the container instance that are in use by current tasks. For port resource types, this parameter describes the ports that were reserved by the Amazon ECS container agent when it registered the container instance with Amazon ECS.

(structure)

Describes the resources available for a container instance.

name -> (string)

The name of the resource, such as cpu , memory , ports , or a user-defined resource.

type -> (string)

The type of the resource, such as INTEGER , DOUBLE , LONG , or STRINGSET .

doubleValue -> (double)

When the doubleValue type is set, the value of the resource must be a double precision floating-point type.

longValue -> (long)

When the longValue type is set, the value of the resource must be an extended precision floating-point type.

integerValue -> (integer)

When the integerValue type is set, the value of the resource must be an integer.

stringSetValue -> (list)

When the stringSetValue type is set, the value of the resource must be a string type.

(string)

status -> (string)

The status of the container instance. The valid values are ACTIVE , INACTIVE , or DRAINING . ACTIVE indicates that the container instance can accept tasks. DRAINING indicates that new tasks are not placed on the container instance and any service tasks running on the container instance are removed if possible. For more information, see Container Instance Draining in the Amazon EC2 Container Service Developer Guide .

agentConnected -> (boolean)

This parameter returns true if the agent is actually connected to Amazon ECS. Registered instances with an agent that may be unhealthy or stopped return false , and instances without a connected agent cannot accept placement requests.

runningTasksCount -> (integer)

The number of tasks on the container instance that are in the RUNNING status.

pendingTasksCount -> (integer)

The number of tasks on the container instance that are in the PENDING status.

agentUpdateStatus -> (string)

The status of the most recent agent update. If an update has never been requested, this value is NULL .

attributes -> (list)

The attributes set for the container instance, either by the Amazon ECS container agent at instance registration or manually with the put-attributes operation.

(structure)

An attribute is a name-value pair associated with an Amazon ECS object. Attributes enable you to extend the Amazon ECS data model by adding custom metadata to your resources. For more information, see Attributes in the Amazon EC2 Container Service Developer Guide .
