start-bgp-failover-test

Description

Starts the virtual interface failover test that verifies your configuration meets your resiliency requirements by placing the BGP peering session in the DOWN state. You can then send traffic to verify that there are no outages.

You can run the test on public, private, transit, and hosted virtual interfaces.

You can use ListVirtualInterfaceTestHistory to view the virtual interface test history.

If you need to stop the test before the test interval completes, use StopBgpFailoverTest .

Options

--virtual-interface-id (string)

The ID of the virtual interface you want to test.

--bgp-peers (list)

The BGP peers to place in the DOWN state.

(string)

Syntax:

"string" "string" ...

--test-duration-in-minutes (integer)

The time in minutes that the virtual interface failover test will last.

Maximum value: 180 minutes (3 hours).

Default: 180 minutes (3 hours).

--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.

Global Options

--debug (boolean)

Turn on debug logging.

--endpoint-url (string)

Override command's default URL with the given URL.

--no-verify-ssl (boolean)

By default, the AWS CLI uses SSL when communicating with AWS services. For each SSL connection, the AWS CLI will verify SSL certificates. This option overrides the default behavior of verifying SSL certificates.

--no-paginate (boolean)

Disable automatic pagination.

--output (string)

The formatting style for command output.

  • json
  • text
  • table

--query (string)

A JMESPath query to use in filtering the response data.

--profile (string)

Use a specific profile from your credential file.

--region (string)

The region to use. Overrides config/env settings.

--version (string)

Display the version of this tool.

--color (string)

Turn on/off color output.

  • on
  • off
  • auto

--no-sign-request (boolean)

Do not sign requests. Credentials will not be loaded if this argument is provided.

--ca-bundle (string)

The CA certificate bundle to use when verifying SSL certificates. Overrides config/env settings.

--cli-read-timeout (int)

The maximum socket read time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket read will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

--cli-connect-timeout (int)

The maximum socket connect time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket connect will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.
