Returns information about all provisioned cache clusters if no cache cluster identifier is specified, or about a specific cache cluster if a cache cluster identifier is supplied.

By default, abbreviated information about the cache clusters is returned. You can use the optional ShowCacheNodeInfo flag to retrieve detailed information about the cache nodes associated with the cache clusters. These details include the DNS address and port for the cache node endpoint.

If the cluster is in the creating state, only cluster-level information is displayed until all of the nodes are successfully provisioned.

If the cluster is in the deleting state, only cluster-level information is displayed.

If cache nodes are currently being added to the cache cluster, node endpoint information and creation time for the additional nodes are not displayed until they are completely provisioned. When the cache cluster state is available, the cluster is ready for use.

If cache nodes are currently being removed from the cache cluster, no endpoint information for the removed nodes is displayed.


For PCL this operation is only available in asynchronous form. Please refer to DescribeCacheClustersAsync.
