Get hostname from Amazon RDS instance name

Project description

A simple command line utility, allowing you to find the hostname associated with your Amazon RDS instance name.

Also has a simple wrapper for PostgreSQL’s psql utility. If you want a similar script for MySQL or Oracle, patches are welcome.

A few examples:

# w/o arg: prints all active instances
% rds-host
mydbinstance    mydbinstance.c6ulnjwxjm.us-west-2.rds.amazonaws.com:5432
myotherdbinstance  myotherdbinstance.d5ulnswdjyf.us-west-2.rds.amazonaws.com:5432

# w/ arg: prints host name of matching instance
% rds-host mydbinstance
mydbinstance.c6ulnjwxjm.us-west-2.rds.amazonaws.com:5432

# connect to the instance with psql
% rds-psql mydbinstance -U mydbuser mydbname
Connecting to mydbinstance.c6ulnjwxjm.us-west-2.rds.amazonaws.com...
Password for user mydbuser:
psql (9.0.5, server 9.3.1)
WARNING: psql version 9.0, server version 9.3.
Some psql features might not work.
SSL connection (cipher: DHE-RSA-AES256-SHA, bits: 256)
Type "help" for help.
