export-ec2-instance-recommendations

Description

Exports optimization recommendations for Amazon EC2 instances.

Recommendations are exported in a comma-separated values (.csv) file, and its metadata in a JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) (.json) file, to an existing Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) bucket that you specify. For more information, see Exporting Recommendations in the Compute Optimizer User Guide .

You can have only one Amazon EC2 instance export job in progress per Amazon Web Services Region.

Options

--account-ids (list)

The IDs of the Amazon Web Services accounts for which to export instance recommendations.

If your account is the management account of an organization, use this parameter to specify the member account for which you want to export recommendations.

This parameter cannot be specified together with the include member accounts parameter. The parameters are mutually exclusive.

Recommendations for member accounts are not included in the export if this parameter, or the include member accounts parameter, is omitted.

You can specify multiple account IDs per request.

(string)

Syntax:

"string" "string" ...

--filters (list)

An array of objects to specify a filter that exports a more specific set of instance recommendations.

(structure)

Describes a filter that returns a more specific list of recommendations. Use this filter with the GetAutoScalingGroupRecommendations and GetEC2InstanceRecommendations actions.

You can use EBSFilter with the GetEBSVolumeRecommendations action, LambdaFunctionRecommendationFilter with the GetLambdaFunctionRecommendations action, and JobFilter with the DescribeRecommendationExportJobs action.

name -> (string)

The name of the filter.

Specify Finding to return recommendations with a specific finding classification (for example, Underprovisioned ).

Specify RecommendationSourceType to return recommendations of a specific resource type (for example, Ec2Instance ).

Specify FindingReasonCodes to return recommendations with a specific finding reason code (for example, CPUUnderprovisioned ).

values -> (list)

The value of the filter.

The valid values for this parameter are as follows, depending on what you specify for the name parameter and the resource type that you wish to filter results for:

  • Specify Optimized or NotOptimized if you specify the name parameter as Finding and you want to filter results for Auto Scaling groups.
  • Specify Underprovisioned , Overprovisioned , or Optimized if you specify the name parameter as Finding and you want to filter results for EC2 instances.
  • Specify Ec2Instance or AutoScalingGroup if you specify the name parameter as RecommendationSourceType .
  • Specify one of the following options if you specify the name parameter as FindingReasonCodes :
    • **CPUOverprovisioned ** — The instance’s CPU configuration can be sized down while still meeting the performance requirements of your workload.
    • **CPUUnderprovisioned ** — The instance’s CPU configuration doesn't meet the performance requirements of your workload and there is an alternative instance type that provides better CPU performance.
    • **MemoryOverprovisioned ** — The instance’s memory configuration can be sized down while still meeting the performance requirements of your workload.
    • **MemoryUnderprovisioned ** — The instance’s memory configuration doesn't meet the performance requirements of your workload and there is an alternative instance type that provides better memory performance.
    • **EBSThroughputOverprovisioned ** — The instance’s EBS throughput configuration can be sized down while still meeting the performance requirements of your workload.
    • **EBSThroughputUnderprovisioned ** — The instance’s EBS throughput configuration doesn't meet the performance requirements of your workload and there is an alternative instance type that provides better EBS throughput performance.
    • **EBSIOPSOverprovisioned ** — The instance’s EBS IOPS configuration can be sized down while still meeting the performance requirements of your workload.
    • **EBSIOPSUnderprovisioned ** — The instance’s EBS IOPS configuration doesn't meet the performance requirements of your workload and there is an alternative instance type that provides better EBS IOPS performance.
    • **NetworkBandwidthOverprovisioned ** — The instance’s network bandwidth configuration can be sized down while still meeting the performance requirements of your workload.
    • **NetworkBandwidthUnderprovisioned ** — The instance’s network bandwidth configuration doesn't meet the performance requirements of your workload and there is an alternative instance type that provides better network bandwidth performance. This finding reason happens when the NetworkIn or NetworkOut performance of an instance is impacted.
    • **NetworkPPSOverprovisioned ** — The instance’s network PPS (packets per second) configuration can be sized down while still meeting the performance requirements of your workload.
    • **NetworkPPSUnderprovisioned ** — The instance’s network PPS (packets per second) configuration doesn't meet the performance requirements of your workload and there is an alternative instance type that provides better network PPS performance.
    • **DiskIOPSOverprovisioned ** — The instance’s disk IOPS configuration can be sized down while still meeting the performance requirements of your workload.
    • **DiskIOPSUnderprovisioned ** — The instance’s disk IOPS configuration doesn't meet the performance requirements of your workload and there is an alternative instance type that provides better disk IOPS performance.
    • **DiskThroughputOverprovisioned ** — The instance’s disk throughput configuration can be sized down while still meeting the performance requirements of your workload.
    • **DiskThroughputUnderprovisioned ** — The instance’s disk throughput configuration doesn't meet the performance requirements of your workload and there is an alternative instance type that provides better disk throughput performance.

--s3-destination-config (structure)

An object to specify the destination Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) bucket name and key prefix for the export job.

You must create the destination Amazon S3 bucket for your recommendations export before you create the export job. Compute Optimizer does not create the S3 bucket for you. After you create the S3 bucket, ensure that it has the required permissions policy to allow Compute Optimizer to write the export file to it. If you plan to specify an object prefix when you create the export job, you must include the object prefix in the policy that you add to the S3 bucket. For more information, see Amazon S3 Bucket Policy for Compute Optimizer in the Compute Optimizer User Guide .

bucket -> (string)

The name of the Amazon S3 bucket to use as the destination for an export job.

keyPrefix -> (string)

The Amazon S3 bucket prefix for an export job.

Shorthand Syntax:

bucket=string,keyPrefix=string

JSON Syntax:

{
  "bucket": "string",
  "keyPrefix": "string"
}

--file-format (string)

The format of the export file.

The only export file format currently supported is Csv .

Possible values:

  • Csv

--include-member-accounts | --no-include-member-accounts (boolean)

Indicates whether to include recommendations for resources in all member accounts of the organization if your account is the management account of an organization.

The member accounts must also be opted in to Compute Optimizer, and trusted access for Compute Optimizer must be enabled in the organization account. For more information, see Compute Optimizer and Amazon Web Services Organizations trusted access in the Compute Optimizer User Guide .

Recommendations for member accounts of the organization are not included in the export file if this parameter is omitted.

Recommendations for member accounts are not included in the export if this parameter, or the account IDs parameter, is omitted.

--recommendation-preferences (structure)

An object to specify the preferences for the Amazon EC2 instance recommendations to export.

cpuVendorArchitectures -> (list)

Specifies the CPU vendor and architecture for Amazon EC2 instance and Auto Scaling group recommendations.

For example, when you specify AWS_ARM64 with:

  • A GetEC2InstanceRecommendations or GetAutoScalingGroupRecommendations request, Compute Optimizer returns recommendations that consist of Graviton2 instance types only.
  • A GetEC2RecommendationProjectedMetrics request, Compute Optimizer returns projected utilization metrics for Graviton2 instance type recommendations only.
  • A ExportEC2InstanceRecommendations or ExportAutoScalingGroupRecommendations request, Compute Optimizer exports recommendations that consist of Graviton2 instance types only.

(string)

Shorthand Syntax:

cpuVendorArchitectures=string,string

JSON Syntax:

{
  "cpuVendorArchitectures": ["AWS_ARM64"|"CURRENT", ...]
}

--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. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally.

--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.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.
