Viewing Events Using the AWS SDK for Java

The following example lists the events for a specified cluster and specified event source type. The example shows how to use pagination.

For step-by-step instructions to run the following example, see Running Java Examples for Amazon Redshift Using Eclipse. You need to update the code and specify a cluster identifier and event source type.

import; import java.util.Date; import com.amazonaws.auth.AWSCredentials; import com.amazonaws.auth.PropertiesCredentials; import; import*; public class ListEvents { public static AmazonRedshiftClient client; public static String clusterIdentifier = "***provide cluster identifier***"; public static String eventSourceType = "***provide source type***"; // e.g. cluster-snapshot public static void main(String[] args) throws IOException { AWSCredentials credentials = new PropertiesCredentials( ListEvents.class .getResourceAsStream("")); client = new AmazonRedshiftClient(credentials); try { listEvents(); } catch (Exception e) { System.err.println("Operation failed: " + e.getMessage()); } } private static void listEvents() { long oneWeeksAgoMilli = (new Date()).getTime() - (7L*24L*60L*60L*1000L); Date oneWeekAgo = new Date(); oneWeekAgo.setTime(oneWeeksAgoMilli); String marker = null; do { DescribeEventsRequest request = new DescribeEventsRequest() .withSourceIdentifier(clusterIdentifier) .withSourceType(eventSourceType) .withStartTime(oneWeekAgo) .withMaxRecords(20); DescribeEventsResult result = client.describeEvents(request); marker = result.getMarker(); for (Event event : result.getEvents()) { printEvent(event); } } while (marker != null); } static void printEvent(Event event) { if (event == null) { System.out.println("\nEvent object is null."); return; } System.out.println("\nEvent metadata:\n"); System.out.format("SourceID: %s\n", event.getSourceIdentifier()); System.out.format("Type: %s\n", event.getSourceType()); System.out.format("Message: %s\n", event.getMessage()); System.out.format("Date: %s\n", event.getDate()); } }
