list-instances

Description

Provides information for all active EC2 instances and EC2 instances terminated in the last 30 days, up to a maximum of 2,000. EC2 instances in any of the following states are considered active: AWAITING_FULFILLMENT, PROVISIONING, BOOTSTRAPPING, RUNNING.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

list-instances is a paginated operation. Multiple API calls may be issued in order to retrieve the entire data set of results. You can disable pagination by providing the --no-paginate argument. When using --output text and the --query argument on a paginated response, the --query argument must extract data from the results of the following query expressions: Instances

Synopsis

  list-instances
--cluster-id <value>
[--instance-group-id <value>]
[--instance-group-types <value>]
[--instance-fleet-id <value>]
[--instance-fleet-type <value>]
[--instance-states <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--starting-token <value>]
[--max-items <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--cluster-id (string)

The identifier of the cluster for which to list the instances.

--instance-group-id (string)

The identifier of the instance group for which to list the instances.

--instance-group-types (list)

The type of instance group for which to list the instances.

Syntax:

"string" "string" ...

Where valid values are:
  MASTER
  CORE
  TASK

--instance-fleet-id (string)

The unique identifier of the instance fleet.

--instance-fleet-type (string)

The node type of the instance fleet. For example MASTER, CORE, or TASK.

Possible values:

  • MASTER
  • CORE
  • TASK

--instance-states (list)

A list of instance states that will filter the instances returned with this request.

Syntax:

"string" "string" ...

Where valid values are:
  AWAITING_FULFILLMENT
  PROVISIONING
  BOOTSTRAPPING
  RUNNING
  TERMINATED

--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.

--starting-token (string)

A token to specify where to start paginating. This is the NextToken from a previously truncated response.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--max-items (integer)

The total number of items to return in the command's output. If the total number of items available is more than the value specified, a NextToken is provided in the command's output. To resume pagination, provide the NextToken value in the starting-token argument of a subsequent command. Do not use the NextToken response element directly outside of the AWS CLI.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--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.

Examples

The following command lists all of the instances in a cluster with the cluster ID j-3C6XNQ39VR9WL:

aws emr list-instances --cluster-id j-3C6XNQ39VR9WL
