Amazon’s Web Services are very handy, although sometimes the command line tool syntax is a little awkward to remember and the documentation, while extensive, is not quite as simple to navigate as I’d like. I’m providing these help files as a reference for anyone who might need them. As you are no doubt aware, you can also get this content directly by issuing <aws_command_name> --help in the shell. For me it’s much easier to have these up in a browser window so I can quickly toggle between it and the command line without losing my place. I’ve added references for Auto Scaling, CloudWatch, Elastic Compute Cloud and Elastic Load Balancing.
