Options

--first-snapshot-id (string)

The ID of the first snapshot to use for the comparison.

Warning

The FirstSnapshotID parameter must be specified with a SecondSnapshotId parameter; otherwise, an error occurs.

--second-snapshot-id (string)

The ID of the second snapshot to use for the comparison.

Warning

The SecondSnapshotId parameter must be specified with a FirstSnapshotID parameter; otherwise, an error occurs.

--next-token (string)

The token to request the next page of results.

If you specify NextToken , then StartingBlockIndex is ignored.

--max-results (integer)

The maximum number of blocks to be returned by the request.

Even if additional blocks can be retrieved from the snapshot, the request can return less blocks than MaxResults or an empty array of blocks.

To retrieve the next set of blocks from the snapshot, make another request with the returned NextToken value. The value of NextToken is null when there are no more blocks to return.

--starting-block-index (integer)

The block index from which the comparison should start.

The list in the response will start from this block index or the next valid block index in the snapshots.

If you specify NextToken , then StartingBlockIndex is ignored.

--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.

Output

ChangedBlocks -> (list)

An array of objects containing information about the changed blocks.

(structure)

A block of data in an Amazon Elastic Block Store snapshot that is different from another snapshot of the same volume/snapshot lineage.

BlockIndex -> (integer)

The block index.

FirstBlockToken -> (string)

The block token for the block index of the FirstSnapshotId specified in the ListChangedBlocks operation. This value is absent if the first snapshot does not have the changed block that is on the second snapshot.

SecondBlockToken -> (string)

The block token for the block index of the SecondSnapshotId specified in the ListChangedBlocks operation.

ExpiryTime -> (timestamp)

The time when the BlockToken expires.

VolumeSize -> (long)

The size of the volume in GB.

BlockSize -> (integer)

The size of the blocks in the snapshot, in bytes.

NextToken -> (string)

The token to use to retrieve the next page of results. This value is null when there are no more results to return.
