describe-fleet-events

Description

Retrieves entries from a fleet's event log. Fleet events are initiated by changes in status, such as during fleet creation and termination, changes in capacity, etc. If a fleet has multiple locations, events are also initiated by changes to status and capacity in remote locations.

You can specify a time range to limit the result set. Use the pagination parameters to retrieve results as a set of sequential pages.

If successful, a collection of event log entries matching the request are returned.

describe-fleet-events is a paginated operation. Multiple API calls may be issued in order to retrieve the entire data set of results. You can disable pagination by providing the --no-paginate argument. When using --output text and the --query argument on a paginated response, the --query argument must extract data from the results of the following query expressions: Events

Options

--fleet-id (string)

A unique identifier for the fleet to get event logs for. You can use either the fleet ID or ARN value.

--start-time (timestamp)

The earliest date to retrieve event logs for. If no start time is specified, this call returns entries starting from when the fleet was created to the specified end time. Format is a number expressed in Unix time as milliseconds (ex: "1469498468.057").

--end-time (timestamp)

The most recent date to retrieve event logs for. If no end time is specified, this call returns entries from the specified start time up to the present. Format is a number expressed in Unix time as milliseconds (ex: "1469498468.057").

--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.

--starting-token (string)

A token to specify where to start paginating. This is the NextToken from a previously truncated response.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--page-size (integer)

The size of each page to get in the AWS service call. This does not affect the number of items returned in the command's output. Setting a smaller page size results in more calls to the AWS service, retrieving fewer items in each call. This can help prevent the AWS service calls from timing out.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--max-items (integer)

The total number of items to return in the command's output. If the total number of items available is more than the value specified, a NextToken is provided in the command's output. To resume pagination, provide the NextToken value in the starting-token argument of a subsequent command. Do not use the NextToken response element directly outside of the AWS CLI.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--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.

Global Options

--debug (boolean)

Turn on debug logging.

--endpoint-url (string)

Override command's default URL with the given URL.

--no-verify-ssl (boolean)

By default, the AWS CLI uses SSL when communicating with AWS services. For each SSL connection, the AWS CLI will verify SSL certificates. This option overrides the default behavior of verifying SSL certificates.

--no-paginate (boolean)

Disable automatic pagination.

--output (string)

The formatting style for command output.

  • json
  • text
  • table

--query (string)

A JMESPath query to use in filtering the response data.

--profile (string)

Use a specific profile from your credential file.

--region (string)

The region to use. Overrides config/env settings.

--version (string)

Display the version of this tool.

--color (string)

Turn on/off color output.

  • on
  • off
  • auto

--no-sign-request (boolean)

Do not sign requests. Credentials will not be loaded if this argument is provided.

--ca-bundle (string)

The CA certificate bundle to use when verifying SSL certificates. Overrides config/env settings.

--cli-read-timeout (int)

The maximum socket read time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket read will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

--cli-connect-timeout (int)

The maximum socket connect time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket connect will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

Examples

Note

To use the following examples, you must have the AWS CLI installed and configured. See the Getting started guide in the AWS CLI User Guide for more information.

Unless otherwise stated, all examples have unix-like quotation rules. These examples will need to be adapted to your terminal's quoting rules. See Using quotation marks with strings in the AWS CLI User Guide .

Log entry describing an event that involves GameLift resources (such as a fleet). In addition to tracking activity, event codes and messages can provide additional information for troubleshooting and debugging problems.

Related actions

DescribeFleetEvents

EventId -> (string)

A unique identifier for a fleet event.

ResourceId -> (string)

A unique identifier for an event resource, such as a fleet ID.

EventCode -> (string)

The type of event being logged.

Fleet state transition events:
  • FLEET_CREATED -- A fleet resource was successfully created with a status of NEW . Event messaging includes the fleet ID.
  • FLEET_STATE_DOWNLOADING -- Fleet status changed from NEW to DOWNLOADING . The compressed build has started downloading to a fleet instance for installation.
  • FLEET_STATE_VALIDATING -- Fleet status changed from DOWNLOADING to VALIDATING . GameLift has successfully downloaded the build and is now validating the build files.
  • FLEET_STATE_BUILDING -- Fleet status changed from VALIDATING to BUILDING . GameLift has successfully verified the build files and is now running the installation scripts.
  • FLEET_STATE_ACTIVATING -- Fleet status changed from BUILDING to ACTIVATING . GameLift is trying to launch an instance and test the connectivity between the build and the GameLift Service via the Server SDK.
  • FLEET_STATE_ACTIVE -- The fleet's status changed from ACTIVATING to ACTIVE . The fleet is now ready to host game sessions.
  • FLEET_STATE_ERROR -- The Fleet's status changed to ERROR . Describe the fleet event message for more details.
Fleet creation events (ordered by fleet creation activity):
  • FLEET_BINARY_DOWNLOAD_FAILED -- The build failed to download to the fleet instance.
  • FLEET_CREATION_EXTRACTING_BUILD -- The game server build was successfully downloaded to an instance, and the build files are now being extracted from the uploaded build and saved to an instance. Failure at this stage prevents a fleet from moving to ACTIVE status. Logs for this stage display a list of the files that are extracted and saved on the instance. Access the logs by using the URL in PreSignedLogUrl .
  • FLEET_CREATION_RUNNING_INSTALLER -- The game server build files were successfully extracted, and the GameLift is now running the build's install script (if one is included). Failure in this stage prevents a fleet from moving to ACTIVE status. Logs for this stage list the installation steps and whether or not the install completed successfully. Access the logs by using the URL in PreSignedLogUrl .
  • FLEET_CREATION_VALIDATING_RUNTIME_CONFIG -- The build process was successful, and the GameLift is now verifying that the game server launch paths, which are specified in the fleet's runtime configuration, exist. If any listed launch path exists, GameLift tries to launch a game server process and waits for the process to report ready. Failures in this stage prevent a fleet from moving to ACTIVE status. Logs for this stage list the launch paths in the runtime configuration and indicate whether each is found. Access the logs by using the URL in PreSignedLogUrl .
  • FLEET_VALIDATION_LAUNCH_PATH_NOT_FOUND -- Validation of the runtime configuration failed because the executable specified in a launch path does not exist on the instance.
  • FLEET_VALIDATION_EXECUTABLE_RUNTIME_FAILURE -- Validation of the runtime configuration failed because the executable specified in a launch path failed to run on the fleet instance.
  • FLEET_VALIDATION_TIMED_OUT -- Validation of the fleet at the end of creation timed out. Try fleet creation again.
  • FLEET_ACTIVATION_FAILED -- The fleet failed to successfully complete one of the steps in the fleet activation process. This event code indicates that the game build was successfully downloaded to a fleet instance, built, and validated, but was not able to start a server process. For more information, see Debug Fleet Creation Issues .
  • FLEET_ACTIVATION_FAILED_NO_INSTANCES -- Fleet creation was not able to obtain any instances based on the input fleet attributes. Try again at a different time or choose a different combination of fleet attributes such as fleet type, instance type, etc.
  • FLEET_INITIALIZATION_FAILED -- A generic exception occurred during fleet creation. Describe the fleet event message for more details.
VPC peering events:
  • FLEET_VPC_PEERING_SUCCEEDED -- A VPC peering connection has been established between the VPC for an GameLift fleet and a VPC in your Amazon Web Services account.
  • FLEET_VPC_PEERING_FAILED -- A requested VPC peering connection has failed. Event details and status information (see DescribeVpcPeeringConnections ) provide additional detail. A common reason for peering failure is that the two VPCs have overlapping CIDR blocks of IPv4 addresses. To resolve this, change the CIDR block for the VPC in your Amazon Web Services account. For more information on VPC peering failures, see https://docs.aws.amazon.com/AmazonVPC/latest/PeeringGuide/invalid-peering-configurations.html
  • FLEET_VPC_PEERING_DELETED -- A VPC peering connection has been successfully deleted.
Spot instance events:
  • INSTANCE_INTERRUPTED -- A spot instance was interrupted by EC2 with a two-minute notification.
Spot process events:
  • SERVER_PROCESS_INVALID_PATH -- The game server executable or script could not be found based on the Fleet runtime configuration. Check that the launch path is correct based on the operating system of the Fleet.
  • SERVER_PROCESS_SDK_INITIALIZATION_TIMEOUT -- The server process did not call InitSDK() within the time expected. Check your game session log to see why InitSDK() was not called in time.
  • SERVER_PROCESS_PROCESS_READY_TIMEOUT -- The server process did not call ProcessReady() within the time expected after calling InitSDK(). Check your game session log to see why ProcessReady() was not called in time.
  • SERVER_PROCESS_CRASHED -- The server process exited without calling ProcessEnding(). Check your game session log to see why ProcessEnding() was not called.
  • SERVER_PROCESS_TERMINATED_UNHEALTHY -- The server process did not report a valid health check for too long and was therefore terminated by GameLift. Check your game session log to see if the thread became stuck processing a synchronous task for too long.
  • SERVER_PROCESS_FORCE_TERMINATED -- The server process did not exit cleanly after OnProcessTerminate() was sent within the time expected. Check your game session log to see why termination took longer than expected.
  • SERVER_PROCESS_PROCESS_EXIT_TIMEOUT -- The server process did not exit cleanly within the time expected after calling ProcessEnding(). Check your game session log to see why termination took longer than expected.
Game session events:
  • GAME_SESSION_ACTIVATION_TIMEOUT -- GameSession failed to activate within the expected time. Check your game session log to see why ActivateGameSession() took longer to complete than expected.
Other fleet events:
  • FLEET_SCALING_EVENT -- A change was made to the fleet's capacity settings (desired instances, minimum/maximum scaling limits). Event messaging includes the new capacity settings.
  • FLEET_NEW_GAME_SESSION_PROTECTION_POLICY_UPDATED -- A change was made to the fleet's game session protection policy setting. Event messaging includes both the old and new policy setting.
  • FLEET_DELETED -- A request to delete a fleet was initiated.
  • GENERIC_EVENT -- An unspecified event has occurred.

Message -> (string)

Additional information related to the event.

EventTime -> (timestamp)

Time stamp indicating when this event occurred. Format is a number expressed in Unix time as milliseconds (for example "1469498468.057" ).

PreSignedLogUrl -> (string)

Location of stored logs with additional detail that is related to the event. This is useful for debugging issues. The URL is valid for 15 minutes. You can also access fleet creation logs through the GameLift console.

NextToken -> (string)

A token that indicates where to resume retrieving results on the next call to this operation. If no token is returned, these results represent the end of the list.
