VM::EC2::State(3) Object describing the state of an EC2 instance


use VM::EC2;
$ec2 = VM::EC2->new(...);
$instance = $ec2->describe_instances(-instance_id=>'i-12345');
$state = $instance->state;
$code = $state->code;
$name = $state->name;


This object represents the state of an Amazon EC2 instance. It is returned by calling the state() method of an VM::EC2::Instance, and is also returned by VM::EC2->start_instances(), stop_instances() and terminate_instances().


These object methods are supported:

 code           -- The state code
 name           -- The state name
   Code                            Name
   ----                            -------
    0                              pending
   16                              running
   32                              shutting-down
   48                              terminated
   64                              stopping
   80                              stopped
  272                              <none>

Code 272 is said to correspond to a problem with the instance host.


When used in a string context, this object will interpolate the name.
