Amazon EC2 Instance Selector

A CLI tool and go library which recommends instance types based on resource criteria like vcpus and memory.

go-version license go-report-card docker-pulls

EC2 Instance Selector CI and Release


Summary

There are over 270 different instance types available on EC2 which can make the process of selecting appropriate instance types difficult. Instance Selector helps you select compatible instance types for your application to run on. The command line interface can be passed resource criteria like vcpus, memory, network performance, and much more and then return the available, matching instance types.

If you are using spot instances to save on costs, it is a best practice to use multiple instances types within your auto-scaling group (ASG) to ensure your application doesn't experience downtime due to one instance type being interrupted. Instance Selector will help to find a set of instance types that your application can run on.

Instance Selector can also be consumed as a go library for direct integration into your go code.

Major Features

  • Filter AWS Instance Types using declarative resource criteria like vcpus, memory, network performance, and much more!
  • Aggregate filters allow for more opinionated instance selections like --base-instance-type and --flexible
  • Consumable as a go library

Installation and Configuration

Install w/ Homebrew

brew tap aws/tap
brew install ec2-instance-selector

Install w/ Curl for Linux/Mac

curl -Lo ec2-instance-selector https://github.com/aws/amazon-ec2-instance-selector/releases/download/v2.4.0/ec2-instance-selector-`uname | tr '[:upper:]' '[:lower:]'`-amd64 && chmod +x ec2-instance-selector

To execute the CLI, you will need AWS credentials configured. Take a look at the AWS CLI configuration documentation for details on the various ways to configure credentials. An easy way to try out the ec2-instance-selector CLI is to populate the following environment variables with your AWS API credentials.

export AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID="..."
export AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY="..."

If you already have an AWS CLI profile setup, you can pass that directly into ec2-instance-selector:

$ ec2-instance-selector --profile my-aws-cli-profile --vcpus 2 --region us-east-1

You can set the AWS_REGION environment variable if you don't want to pass in --region on each run.

$ export AWS_REGION="us-east-1"

Examples

CLI

All CLI Options

$ ec2-instance-selector --help
ec2-instance-selector is a CLI tool to filter EC2 instance types based on resource criteria. 
Filtering allows you to select all the instance types that match your application requirements.
Full docs can be found at github.com/aws/amazon-ec2-instance-selector

Usage:
  ec2-instance-selector [flags]

Examples:
ec2-instance-selector --vcpus 4 --region us-east-2 --availability-zones us-east-2b

Go Library

This is a minimal example of using the instance selector go package directly:

cmd/examples/example1.go

package main

import (
	"fmt"

	"github.com/aws/amazon-ec2-instance-selector/v2/pkg/bytequantity"
	"github.com/aws/amazon-ec2-instance-selector/v2/pkg/selector"
	"github.com/aws/aws-sdk-go/aws"
	"github.com/aws/aws-sdk-go/aws/session"
)

func main() {
	// Load an AWS session by looking at shared credentials or environment variables
	// https://docs.aws.amazon.com/sdk-for-go/api/aws/session/
	sess, err := session.NewSession(&aws.Config{
		Region: aws.String("us-east-2"),
	})
	if err != nil {
		fmt.Printf("Oh no, AWS session credentials cannot be found: %v", err)
		return
	}

	// Instantiate a new instance of a selector with the AWS session
	instanceSelector := selector.New(sess)

	// Instantiate an int range filter to specify min and max vcpus
	vcpusRange := selector.IntRangeFilter{
		LowerBound: 2,
		UpperBound: 4,
	}
	// Instantiate a byte quantity range filter to specify min and max memory in GiB
	memoryRange := selector.ByteQuantityRangeFilter{
		LowerBound: bytequantity.FromGiB(2),
		UpperBound: bytequantity.FromGiB(4),
	}
	// Create a string for the CPU Architecture so that it can be passed as a pointer
	// when creating the Filter struct
	cpuArch := "x86_64"

	// Create a Filter struct with criteria you would like to filter
	// The full struct definition can be found here for all of the supported filters:
	// https://github.com/aws/amazon-ec2-instance-selector/blob/main/pkg/selector/types.go
	filters := selector.Filters{
		VCpusRange:      &vcpusRange,
		MemoryRange:     &memoryRange,
		CPUArchitecture: &cpuArch,
	}

	// Pass the Filter struct to the Filter function of your selector instance
	instanceTypesSlice, err := instanceSelector.Filter(filters)
	if err != nil {
		fmt.Printf("Oh no, there was an error :( %v", err)
		return
	}
	// Print the returned instance types slice
	fmt.Println(instanceTypesSlice)
}
