Describes the specified EBS volumes.

If you are describing a long list of volumes, you can paginate the output to make the list more manageable. The MaxResults parameter sets the maximum number of results returned in a single page. If the list of results exceeds your MaxResults value, then that number of results is returned along with a NextToken value that can be passed to a subsequent DescribeVolumes request to retrieve the remaining results.

For more information about EBS volumes, see Amazon EBS Volumes in the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud User Guide.


For .NET Core and PCL this operation is only available in asynchronous form. Please refer to DescribeVolumesAsync.
