I have a AWS instance on which I perform a ssh login and operate.Os is Ubuntu 16.04.3. I didn’t select it’s AMI and neither do I have the access to its AWS console.
I wanted to know that what instance is it like, is it t2.small or m3.large?
I did found a command
lscpu which tells me that it has
1 CPU and 1 Core per socket,
And on running
free -m I can see that it has 2GB of available memory.
Based on these things I am making a guess that it is a t2.small instance. Is there a way to be sure about it that what instance is it?
When I use the describe-intances command i get the following output:
aws ec2 describe-instances You must specify a region. You can also configure your region by running "aws configure".
And I am not aware of the region of my instance as well.
Also I needed an EBS Provisioned IOPS SSD or SSD instance store volumes specifically. But if it is a t2.micro instance then according to the table shown by was while selecting instances, it is EBS only.
So how can I find that whether the instance I am using contains a EBS IOPS SSD or SSD instance store volumes or not?
