ECLAT-MKSNAP

NAME

eclat-mksnap, eclat-create-snapshot − creates a snapshot of an Amazon EBS volume

SYNOPSIS

eclat mksnap VOLUME−ID [DESCR]

eclat mksnap −−help

DESCRIPTION

This command creates a snapshot of an Amazon EBS volume VOLUME−ID and stores it in Amazon S3. Any surplus arguments are taken as a description of that snapshot.

If ID translation is enabled (see the section MAPS in eclat(1)), this command uses the VolumeId map to translate volume name to the corresponding identifier.

OUTPUT

The default output shows the ID of the snapshot and the volume, the size of the volume in gigabytes, the state of the snapshot, its completion percentage and creation time, e.g.:

snap−78a54011 vol−4d826724 10 pending 60% 2008−05−07T12:51:50.000Z

EXAMPLE
