Description

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  list-available-resource-dimensions
--service-type <value>
--identifier <value>
--metrics <value>
[--max-results <value>]
[--next-token <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--service-type (string)

The Amazon Web Services service for which Performance Insights returns metrics.

Possible values:

  • RDS
  • DOCDB

--identifier (string)

An immutable identifier for a data source that is unique within an Amazon Web Services Region. Performance Insights gathers metrics from this data source. To use an Amazon RDS DB instance as a data source, specify its DbiResourceId value. For example, specify db-ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTU1VWZ .

--metrics (list)

The types of metrics for which to retrieve dimensions. Valid values include db.load .

(string)

Syntax:

"string" "string" ...

--max-results (integer)

The maximum number of items to return in the response. If more items exist than the specified MaxRecords value, a pagination token is included in the response so that the remaining results can be retrieved.

--next-token (string)

An optional pagination token provided by a previous request. If this parameter is specified, the response includes only records beyond the token, up to the value specified by MaxRecords .

--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.
