.NET Framework 4.5
Creates an ExportTask which allows you to efficiently export data from a Log Group to your Amazon S3 bucket.

This is an asynchronous call. If all the required information is provided, this API will initiate an export task and respond with the task Id. Once started, DescribeExportTasks can be used to get the status of an export task. You can only have one active (RUNNING or PENDING) export task at a time, per account.

You can export logs from multiple log groups or multiple time ranges to the same Amazon S3 bucket. To separate out log data for each export task, you can specify a prefix that will be used as the Amazon S3 key prefix for all exported objects.
