Example Amazon EBS Configuration History from AWS Config

AWS Config generates a set of files that each represent a resource type and lists all configuration changes for the resources of that type that AWS Config is recording. AWS Config exports this resource-centric configuration history as an object in the Amazon S3 bucket that you specified when you enabled AWS Config. The configuration history file for each resource type contains the changes that were detected for the resources of that type since the last history file was delivered. History files are typically delivered every six hours.

The following is an example of the contents of the Amazon S3 object that describes the configuration history of all the Amazon Elastic Block Store volumes in the current region for your AWS account. The volumes in this account include vol-ce676ccc and vol-cia007c . Volume vol-ce676ccc had two configuration changes since the previous history file was delivered while volume vol-cia007c had one.
