Launch instances of a machine image

positional arguments

ID of the image to instantiate (required)

optional arguments

-n MIN[-MAX], --instance-count MIN[-MAX]
number of instances to launch. If this number of instances cannot be launched, no instances will launch. If specified as a range (min-max), the server will attempt to launch the maximum number, but no fewer than the minimum number.
-g GROUP, --group GROUP
security group(s) in which to launch the instances
name of the key pair to use
-d DATA, --user-data DATA
user data to make available to instances in this reservation
--user-data-force DATA
same as -d/--user-data, but without checking if a file by that name exists first
-f FILE, --user-data-file FILE
file containing user data to make available to the instances in this reservation
--addressing {public,private}
[Eucalyptus only, non-VPC only] addressing scheme to launch the instance with. Use "private" to run an instance with no public address.
type of instance to launch

-z ZONE, --availability-zone ZONE

--kernel KERNEL
ID of the kernel to launch the instance(s) with
--ramdisk RAMDISK
ID of the ramdisk to launch the instance(s) with
-b DEVICE=MAPPED, --block-device-mapping DEVICE=MAPPED
define a block device mapping for the instances, in the form DEVICE=MAPPED, where "MAPPED" is "none", "ephemeral(0-3)", or "[SNAPID]:[GiB]:[true|false]:[standard|VOLTYPE[:IOPS]]"
-m, --monitor
enable detailed monitoring for the instance(s)
prevent API users from terminating the instance(s)
--instance-initiated-shutdown-behavior {stop,terminate}
whether to "stop" (default) or terminate EBS instances when they shut down
--placement-group PLGROUP
name of a placement group to launch into
--tenancy {default,dedicated}
[VPC only] "dedicated" to run on single-tenant hardware
--client-token TOKEN
unique identifier to ensure request idempotency
-s SUBNET, --subnet SUBNET
[VPC only] subnet to create the instance's network interface in
--associate-public-ip-address ASSOCIATE_PUBLIC_IP_ADDRESS
[VPC only] assign a public address to the instance's network interface
--private-ip-address ADDRESS
[VPC only] assign a specific primary private IP address to an instance's interface
--secondary-address ADDRESS, --secondary-private-ip-address ADDRESS
[VPC only] assign a specific secondary private IP address to an instance's network interface. Use this option multiple times to add additional addresses.
--secondary-count COUNT, --secondary-private-ip-address-count COUNT
[VPC only] automatically assign a specific number of secondary private IP addresses to an instance's network interface
-a INTERFACE, --network-interface INTERFACE
[VPC only] add a network interface to the new instance. If the interface already exists, supply its ID and a numeric index for it, separated by ":", in the form "eni-NNNNNNNN:INDEX". To create a new interface, supply a numeric index and subnet ID for it, along with (in order) an optional description, a primary private IP address, a list of security group IDs to associate with the interface, whether to delete the interface upon instance termination ("true" or "false"), a number of secondary private IP addresses to create automatically, and a list of secondary private IP addresses to assign to the interface, separated by ":", in the form ":INDEX:SUBNET:[DESCRIPT ION]:[PRIV_IP]:[GROUP1,GROUP2,...]:[true|false]:[SEC_I P_COUNT|:SEC_IP1,SEC_IP2,...]". You cannot specify both of the latter two. This option may be used multiple times. Each adds another network interface.
-p IPROFILE, --iam-profile IPROFILE
name or ARN of the IAM instance profile to associate with the new instance(s)
optimize the new instance(s) for EBS I/O
show empty values as "(nil)"
-U URL, --url URL
compute service endpoint URL
--region USER@REGION
region and/or user names to search when looking up config file data

-I KEY_ID, --access-key-id KEY_ID

-S KEY, --secret-key KEY

--security-token TOKEN

show debugging output
launch interactive debugger on error
show the program's version and exit
-h, --help
show this help message and exit
