DescribeCompute - Amazon GameLift


Retrieves properties for a compute resource in an Amazon GameLift fleet. Call ListCompute to get a list of compute resources in a fleet. You can request information for computes in either managed EC2 fleets or Anywhere fleets.

To request compute properties, specify the compute name and fleet ID.

If successful, this operation returns details for the requested compute resource. For managed EC2 fleets, this operation returns the fleet's EC2 instances. For Anywhere fleets, this operation returns the fleet's registered computes.
