AWS EC2 information and connection tool

Project description

AWS Instance Information


awsi script can help search for a server in aws and connect to it.

It uses boto to connect to AWS and build a register of all the ec2 instances you have access too.

It can generate a cache of all servers in the configured regions by calling awsi --refresh

It can then connect to an instance using the instanceId, public ip address or name tag If more than one server is found (maybe they have the same name) it will show you all of them and require you to use a different piece of information. ID is unique so this is recommended.
