NAME

gcloud compute disks snapshot - create snapshots of Google Compute Engine persistent disks

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS


gcloud compute disks snapshot DISK_NAME [DISK_NAME ...] [--description DESCRIPTION] [--snapshot-names SNAPSHOT_NAME,[SNAPSHOT_NAME,...]] [--zone ZONE] [GLOBAL-FLAG ...]

DESCRIPTION

gcloud compute disks snapshot creates snapshots of persistent disks. Snapshots are useful for backing up data or copying a persistent disk. Once created snapshots may be managed (listed, deleted, etc.) via gcloud compute snapshots.

POSITIONAL ARGUMENTS

DISK_NAME [DISK_NAME ...]

The names of the disks to snapshot.

FLAGS

--description DESCRIPTION

An optional, textual description for the snapshots being created.

--snapshot-names SNAPSHOT_NAME,[SNAPSHOT_NAME,...]
Names to assign to the snapshots. Without this option, the name of each snapshot will be a random, 16-character hexadecimal number that starts with a letter. The values of this option run parallel to the disks specified. For example,

$ gcloud compute disks snapshot my-disk-1 my-disk-2 my-disk-3 \
--snapshot-names snapshot-1,snapshot-2,snapshot-3

will result in my-disk-1 being snapshotted as snapshot-1, my-disk-2 as snapshot-2, and so on.

--zone ZONE
The zone of the disks to snapshot. If not specified, you will be prompted to select a zone.

To avoid prompting when this flag is omitted, you can set the compute/zone property:

$ gcloud config set compute/zone ZONE

A list of zones can be fetched by running:

$ gcloud compute zones list

To unset the property, run:

$ gcloud config unset compute/zone

Alternatively, the zone can be stored in the environment variable CLOUDSDK_COMPUTE_ZONE.

GLOBAL FLAGS

Run $ gcloud help for a description of flags available to all commands.
