Describes the Elastic GPUs associated with your instances. For more information about Elastic GPUs, see Amazon EC2 Elastic GPUs .

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

--elastic-gpu-ids (list)

One or more Elastic GPU IDs.


"string" "string" ...

--dry-run | --no-dry-run (boolean)

Checks whether you have the required permissions for the action, without actually making the request, and provides an error response. If you have the required permissions, the error response is DryRunOperation . Otherwise, it is UnauthorizedOperation .

--filters (list)

One or more filters.

  • availability-zone - The Availability Zone in which the Elastic GPU resides.
  • elastic-gpu-health - The status of the Elastic GPU (OK | IMPAIRED ).
  • elastic-gpu-state - The state of the Elastic GPU (ATTACHED ).
  • elastic-gpu-type - The type of Elastic GPU; for example, eg1.medium .
  • instance-id - The ID of the instance to which the Elastic GPU is associated.

Shorthand Syntax:

Name=string,Values=string,string ...

JSON Syntax:

    "Name": "string",
    "Values": ["string", ...]

--max-results (integer)

The maximum number of results to return in a single call. To retrieve the remaining results, make another call with the returned NextToken value. This value can be between 5 and 1000.

--next-token (string)

The token to request the next page of results.

--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.

ElasticGpuSet -> (list)

Information about the Elastic GPUs.


Describes an Elastic GPU.

ElasticGpuId -> (string)

The ID of the Elastic GPU.

AvailabilityZone -> (string)

The Availability Zone in the which the Elastic GPU resides.

ElasticGpuType -> (string)

The type of Elastic GPU.

ElasticGpuHealth -> (structure)

The status of the Elastic GPU.

Status -> (string)

The health status.

ElasticGpuState -> (string)

The state of the Elastic GPU.

InstanceId -> (string)

The ID of the instance to which the Elastic GPU is attached.

MaxResults -> (integer)

The total number of items to return. If the total number of items available is more than the value specified in max-items then a Next-Token will be provided in the output that you can use to resume pagination.

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.
