aws s3 glacier restore status



IHAC who would like to know the following:

How do I check my Glacier progress? How long does it take to restore from Glacier? How do I restore Amazon Glacier?

Any help is welcome!

I would suggest starting with the Job Operations calls >here<, as that will list what is in flight. A recommended practice is to send an Amazon SNS message when the job is completed.

A more complete discussion around the types (and speeds) of retrieval options is available >here<, please see "Archive Retrieval Options" as the time required / cost for retrieval are tied to the option chosen (expedited, standard, bulk). The how-to restore process is documented at the top of that link.

Hello!! At this time you can expect times from 1 minute to 12 hours on retrieving files. To know how, monitoring and further guidance please visit Have a nice building!

While Amazon Glacier was originally created to provide archive backups with restoration rates in terms of hours, a new product feature was just announced at re:Invent 2021 called Expedited Retrieval. This option allows customers to quickly access data when occasional urgent requests for a subset of archives are required. Pricing has changed so it's important to review cost vs performance with your customer.

Not sure how you issued your restore request. But this is an example of the restore request as an s3 restore-object api followed by a s3 head api which will return the status of the restore request

admin:~/environment $ aws s3api restore-object --bucket 488-data --key one/ --restore-request '{"Days":25,"GlacierJobParameters":{"Tier":"Bulk"}}'
admin:~/environment $ aws s3api head-object --bucket 488-data --key one/
    "AcceptRanges": "bytes",
    "Restore": "ongoing-request=\"true\"",
    "LastModified": "2021-11-17T19:45:16+00:00",
    "ContentLength": 163,
    "ETag": "\"44ba624881ff5096454d7ea257f908ed\"",
    "VersionId": "2_4ikOabmNo.DHUiK37dDGAgOrJdsbgI",
    "ContentType": "application/x-sh",
    "Metadata": {},
    "StorageClass": "DEEP_ARCHIVE"

You can see from this that request is ongoing.
