Check instance capacity

0

Is it possible to check how much instance capacity exists for a given region and AZ?

Use case: trying to determine the best instance types to choose to have the highest likelihood of reservation success.

Reduce seeing this: X instance is out of capacity for y availability zone in us-west-2

It is not possible to check how much instance capacity exists for a given region and AZ on your end as this is internal information.

How about using describe-capacity-reservations command?

https://awscli.amazonaws.com/v2/documentation/api/latest/reference/ec2/describe-capacity-reservations.html

AvailableInstanceCount -> (integer)

The remaining capacity. Indicates the number of instances that can be launched in the Capacity Reservation.

Filtering with --filters AZ is also available.
