Snapshots Info tab

The Info tab shows the following basic information grouped together in the following areas:

  • Info - Both generic and cloud specific data is displayed in the Info section. The data displayed here is fetched from the database, but could have originated and been set by RightScale directly (e.g. a Name or Tag) or from the cloud (e.g. a Resource UID or CPU Speed). Note that many are actionable links.
    • Description - User-defined description of the snapshot.
    • Resource UID - The unique identification number of the snapshot.
    • Owner - The AWS account number that created the snapshot.
    • Volume - Volume name from which the Volume Snapshot was created.
    • State - You can only use a snapshot to create a volume if its status is completed and 'available'.
    • Tag(s) - Private tags that you've added to the snapshot.
  • Cloud Info - This section is specific to the cloud infrastructure the Volume Snapshot was taken on. RightScale reports this on behalf of the cloud, but you cannot manipulate this data from the Dashboard (Please see your cloud provider documentation for more information. Note: The exact name of this info grouping differs, in that "Cloud" in the Cloud Info reflects the actual name of the cloud).
  • Timestamps - Critical instance timestamps (in the local TZ) are shown
    • Created at - Time and date stamp when the entity (Volume Snapshot) was created.
    • Updated at - Time and date stamp when the entity (Volume Snapshot) was last updated.
