get-container-log

Description

Returns the log events of a container of your Amazon Lightsail container service.

If your container service has more than one node (i.e., a scale greater than 1), then the log events that are returned for the specified container are merged from all nodes on your container service.

Note

Container logs are retained for a certain amount of time. For more information, see Amazon Lightsail endpoints and quotas in the AWS General Reference .

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  get-container-log
--service-name <value>
--container-name <value>
[--start-time <value>]
[--end-time <value>]
[--filter-pattern <value>]
[--page-token <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--service-name (string)

The name of the container service for which to get a container log.

--container-name (string)

The name of the container that is either running or previously ran on the container service for which to return a log.

--start-time (timestamp)

The start of the time interval for which to get log data.

Constraints:

  • Specified in Coordinated Universal Time (UTC).
  • Specified in the Unix time format. For example, if you wish to use a start time of October 1, 2018, at 8 PM UTC, specify 1538424000 as the start time.

You can convert a human-friendly time to Unix time format using a converter like Epoch converter .

--end-time (timestamp)

The end of the time interval for which to get log data.

Constraints:

  • Specified in Coordinated Universal Time (UTC).
  • Specified in the Unix time format. For example, if you wish to use an end time of October 1, 2018, at 9 PM UTC, specify 1538427600 as the end time.

You can convert a human-friendly time to Unix time format using a converter like Epoch converter .

--filter-pattern (string)

The pattern to use to filter the returned log events to a specific term.

The following are a few examples of filter patterns that you can specify:

  • To return all log events, specify a filter pattern of "" .
  • To exclude log events that contain the ERROR term, and return all other log events, specify a filter pattern of "-ERROR" .
  • To return log events that contain the ERROR term, specify a filter pattern of "ERROR" .
  • To return log events that contain both the ERROR and Exception terms, specify a filter pattern of "ERROR Exception" .
  • To return log events that contain the ERROR or the Exception term, specify a filter pattern of "?ERROR ?Exception" .

--page-token (string)

The token to advance to the next page of results from your request.

To get a page token, perform an initial GetContainerLog request. If your results are paginated, the response will return a next page token that you can specify as the page token in a subsequent request.

--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.

Output

logEvents -> (list)

An array of objects that describe the log events of a container.

(structure)

Describes the log events of a container of an Amazon Lightsail container service.

createdAt -> (timestamp)

The timestamp when the container service log event was created.

message -> (string)

The message of the container service log event.

nextPageToken -> (string)

The token to advance to the next page of results from your request.

A next page token is not returned if there are no more results to display.

To get the next page of results, perform another GetContainerLog request and specify the next page token using the pageToken parameter.
