fence_aws - Man Page

Fence agent for AWS (Amazon Web Services)

Description

fence_aws is an I/O Fencing agent for AWS (Amazon WebServices). It uses the boto3 library to connect to AWS.

boto3 can be configured with AWS CLI or by creating ~/.aws/credentials. For instructions see: https://boto3.readthedocs.io/en/latest/guide/quickstart.html#configuration

fence_aws accepts options on the command line as well as from stdin. Fenced sends parameters through stdin when it execs the agent. fence_aws can be run by itself with command line options.  This is useful for testing and for turning outlets on or off from scripts.
