Viewing a cluster's details

You can view detail information about one or more clusters using the ElastiCache console, Amazon CLI, or ElastiCache API.

You can view the details of a Memcached cluster using the ElastiCache console, the Amazon CLI for ElastiCache, or the ElastiCache API.

The following procedure details how to view the details of a Memcached cluster using the ElastiCache console.

To view a Memcached cluster's details
  1. Sign in to the Amazon Web Services Management Console and open the Amazon ElastiCache console at https://console.amazonaws.cn/elasticache/.

  2. From the list in the upper-right corner, choose the Amazon Region you are interested in.

  3. In the ElastiCache console dashboard, choose Memcached. Doing this displays a list of all your clusters that are running any version of Memcached.

  4. To see details of a cluster, choose the box to the left of the cluster's name.

  5. To view node information, choose the Nodes tab, which displays information on node(s) status and endpoint.

  6. To view metrics, choose the Metrics tab, which displays the relevant metrics for all nodes in the cluster. For more information, see Monitoring use with CloudWatch metrics

  7. Choose the Network and security tab to view details on the cluster's network connectivity and subnet group configuration and the VPC security group. For more information, see Subnets and subnet groups.

  8. Choose the Maintenance tab to view details on the cluster's maintenance settings. For more information, see Managing maintenance.

The following code lists the details for my-cluster:

aws elasticache describe-cache-clusters --cache-cluster-id my-cluster

Replace my-cluster with the name of your cluster in a case where the cluster is created with 1 cache node and 0 shards using the create-cache-cluster command.

In a case where the cluster is created using the Amazon Web Services Management Console (cluster node enabled or disabled with 1 or more shards), use the following command to describe the cluster's details (replace my-cluster with the name of the replication group (name of your cluster):

aws elasticache describe-replication-groups --replication-group-id my-cluster

For more information, see the Amazon CLI for ElastiCache topic describe-cache-clusters.

You can view the details for a cluster using the ElastiCache API DescribeCacheClusters action. If the CacheClusterId parameter is included, details for the specified cluster are returned. If the CacheClusterId parameter is omitted, details for up to MaxRecords (default 100) clusters are returned. The value for MaxRecords cannot be less than 20 or greater than 100.

The following code lists the details for my-cluster.
