Overview

Note:

When passing BlockDeviceMapping as input to an Aws::Client method, you can use a vanilla Hash:

{
  device_name: "String",
  virtual_name: "String",
  ebs: {
    encrypted: false,
    delete_on_termination: false,
    iops: 1,
    snapshot_id: "String",
    volume_size: 1,
    volume_type: "standard", # accepts standard, io1, gp2, sc1, st1
  },
  no_device: "String",
}

Describes a block device mapping.

Instance Attribute Details

#device_nameString

The device name exposed to the instance (for example, /dev/sdh or xvdh).

Returns:

  • (String)

    The device name exposed to the instance (for example, /dev/sdh or xvdh).

#ebsTypes::EbsBlockDevice

Parameters used to automatically set up EBS volumes when the instance is launched.

Returns:

  • (Types::EbsBlockDevice)

    Parameters used to automatically set up EBS volumes when the instance is launched.

#no_deviceString

Suppresses the specified device included in the block device mapping of the AMI.

Returns:

  • (String)

    Suppresses the specified device included in the block device mapping of the AMI.

#virtual_nameString

The virtual device name (ephemeralN). Instance store volumes are numbered starting from 0. An instance type with 2 available instance store volumes can specify mappings for ephemeral0 and ephemeral1.The number of available instance store volumes depends on the instance type. After you connect to the instance, you must mount the volume.

Constraints: For M3 instances, you must specify instance store volumes in the block device mapping for the instance. When you launch an M3 instance, we ignore any instance store volumes specified in the block device mapping for the AMI.

Returns:

  • (String)

    The virtual device name (ephemeralN).
