describe-orderable-cluster-options

Description

Returns a list of orderable cluster options. Before you create a new cluster you can use this operation to find what options are available, such as the EC2 Availability Zones (AZ) in the specific AWS region that you can specify, and the node types you can request. The node types differ by available storage, memory, CPU and price. With the cost involved you might want to obtain a list of cluster options in the specific region and specify values when creating a cluster. For more information about managing clusters, go to Amazon Redshift Clusters in the Amazon Redshift Cluster Management Guide .

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

describe-orderable-cluster-options 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: OrderableClusterOptions

Synopsis

  describe-orderable-cluster-options
[--cluster-version <value>]
[--node-type <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--starting-token <value>]
[--page-size <value>]
[--max-items <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--cluster-version (string)

The version filter value. Specify this parameter to show only the available offerings matching the specified version.

Default: All versions.

Constraints: Must be one of the version returned from describe-cluster-versions .

--node-type (string)

The node type filter value. Specify this parameter to show only the available offerings matching the specified node type.

--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.

--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 .

--page-size (integer)

The size of each page to get in the AWS service call. This does not affect the number of items returned in the command's output. Setting a smaller page size results in more calls to the AWS service, retrieving fewer items in each call. This can help prevent the AWS service calls from timing out.

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

Describing All Orderable Cluster Options

This example returns descriptions of all orderable cluster options. By default, the output is in JSON format.

Command:

aws redshift describe-orderable-cluster-options

Result:

{
   "OrderableClusterOptions": [
      {
         "NodeType": "dw.hs1.8xlarge",
         "AvailabilityZones": [
            { "Name": "us-east-1a" },
            { "Name": "us-east-1b" },
            { "Name": "us-east-1c" } ],
         "ClusterVersion": "1.0",
         "ClusterType": "multi-node"
      },
      {
         "NodeType": "dw.hs1.xlarge",
         "AvailabilityZones": [
            { "Name": "us-east-1a" },
            { "Name": "us-east-1b" },
            { "Name": "us-east-1c" } ],
         "ClusterVersion": "1.0",
         "ClusterType": "multi-node"
      },
      {
      "NodeType": "dw.hs1.xlarge",
      "AvailabilityZones": [
         { "Name": "us-east-1a" },
         { "Name": "us-east-1b" },
         { "Name": "us-east-1c" } ],
      "ClusterVersion": "1.0",
      "ClusterType": "single-node"
      } ],
   "ResponseMetadata": {
      "RequestId": "f6000035-64cb-11e2-9135-ff82df53a51a"
   }
}

You can also obtain the same information in text format using the --output text option.

Command:

aws redshift describe-orderable-cluster-options --output text

Result:

dw.hs1.8xlarge      1.0     multi-node
us-east-1a
us-east-1b
us-east-1c
dw.hs1.xlarge       1.0     multi-node
us-east-1a
us-east-1b
us-east-1c
dw.hs1.xlarge       1.0     single-node
us-east-1a

Output

OrderableClusterOptions -> (list)

An OrderableClusterOption structure containing information about orderable options for the cluster.

(structure)

Describes an orderable cluster option.

ClusterVersion -> (string)

The version of the orderable cluster.

ClusterType -> (string)

The cluster type, for example multi-node .

NodeType -> (string)

The node type for the orderable cluster.

AvailabilityZones -> (list)

A list of availability zones for the orderable cluster.

(structure)

Describes an availability zone.

Name -> (string)

The name of the availability zone.

SupportedPlatforms -> (list)

(structure)

A list of supported platforms for orderable clusters.

Name -> (string)

Marker -> (string)

A value that indicates the starting point for the next set of response records in a subsequent request. If a value is returned in a response, you can retrieve the next set of records by providing this returned marker value in the Marker parameter and retrying the command. If the Marker field is empty, all response records have been retrieved for the request.
