Returns: a Paws::StorageGateway::ListVolumeRecoveryPointsOutput instance

This operation lists the recovery points for a specified gateway. This operation is supported only for the gateway-cached volume architecture.

Each gateway-cached volume has one recovery point. A volume recovery point is a point in time at which all data of the volume is consistent and from which you can create a snapshot. To create a snapshot from a volume recovery point use the CreateSnapshotFromVolumeRecoveryPoint operation.

    ListVolumes(GatewayARN => Str, [Limit => Int, Marker => Str])

Each argument is described in detail in: Paws::StorageGateway::ListVolumes

Returns: a Paws::StorageGateway::ListVolumesOutput instance

This operation lists the iSCSI stored volumes of a gateway. Results are sorted by volume ARN. The response includes only the volume ARNs. If you want additional volume information, use the DescribeStorediSCSIVolumes API.

The operation supports pagination. By default, the operation returns a maximum of up to 100 volumes. You can optionally specify the Limit field in the body to limit the number of volumes in the response. If the number of volumes returned in the response is truncated, the response includes a Marker field. You can use this Marker value in your subsequent request to retrieve the next set of volumes.

    ResetCache(GatewayARN => Str)

Each argument is described in detail in: Paws::StorageGateway::ResetCache

Returns: a Paws::StorageGateway::ResetCacheOutput instance

This operation resets all cache disks that have encountered a error and makes the disks available for reconfiguration as cache storage. If your cache disk encounters a error, the gateway prevents read and write operations on virtual tapes in the gateway. For example, an error can occur when a disk is corrupted or removed from the gateway. When a cache is reset, the gateway loses its cache storage. At this point you can reconfigure the disks as cache disks.

If the cache disk you are resetting contains data that has not been uploaded to Amazon S3 yet, that data can be lost. After you reset cache disks, there will be no configured cache disks left in the gateway, so you must configure at least one new cache disk for your gateway to function properly.

Each argument is described in detail in: Paws::StorageGateway::RetrieveTapeArchive

Returns: a Paws::StorageGateway::RetrieveTapeArchiveOutput instance

Retrieves an archived virtual tape from the virtual tape shelf (VTS) to a gateway-VTL. Virtual tapes archived in the VTS are not associated with any gateway. However after a tape is retrieved, it is associated with a gateway, even though it is also listed in the VTS.

Once a tape is successfully retrieved to a gateway, it cannot be retrieved again to another gateway. You must archive the tape again before you can retrieve it to another gateway.

    RetrieveTapeRecoveryPoint(GatewayARN => Str, TapeARN => Str)

Each argument is described in detail in: Paws::StorageGateway::RetrieveTapeRecoveryPoint

Returns: a Paws::StorageGateway::RetrieveTapeRecoveryPointOutput instance

Retrieves the recovery point for the specified virtual tape.

A recovery point is a point in time view of a virtual tape at which all the data on the tape is consistent. If your gateway crashes, virtual tapes that have recovery points can be recovered to a new gateway.

The virtual tape can be retrieved to only one gateway. The retrieved tape is read-only. The virtual tape can be retrieved to only a gateway-VTL. There is no charge for retrieving recovery points.

    ShutdownGateway(GatewayARN => Str)

Each argument is described in detail in: Paws::StorageGateway::ShutdownGateway

Returns: a Paws::StorageGateway::ShutdownGatewayOutput instance

This operation shuts down a gateway. To specify which gateway to shut down, use the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the gateway in the body of your request.

The operation shuts down the gateway service component running in the storage gateway’s virtual machine (VM) and not the VM.

If you want to shut down the VM, it is recommended that you first shut down the gateway component in the VM to avoid unpredictable conditions.

After the gateway is shutdown, you cannot call any other API except StartGateway, DescribeGatewayInformation, and ListGateways. For more information, see ActivateGateway. Your applications cannot read from or write to the gateway’s storage volumes, and there are no snapshots taken.

When you make a shutdown request, you will get a 200 OK success response immediately. However, it might take some time for the gateway to shut down. You can call the DescribeGatewayInformation API to check the status. For more information, see ActivateGateway.

If do not intend to use the gateway again, you must delete the gateway (using DeleteGateway) to no longer pay software charges associated with the gateway.

    StartGateway(GatewayARN => Str)

Each argument is described in detail in: Paws::StorageGateway::StartGateway

Returns: a Paws::StorageGateway::StartGatewayOutput instance

This operation starts a gateway that you previously shut down (see ShutdownGateway). After the gateway starts, you can then make other API calls, your applications can read from or write to the gateway’s storage volumes and you will be able to take snapshot backups.

When you make a request, you will get a 200 OK success response immediately. However, it might take some time for the gateway to be ready. You should call DescribeGatewayInformation and check the status before making any additional API calls. For more information, see ActivateGateway.

To specify which gateway to start, use the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the gateway in your request.

    UpdateBandwidthRateLimit(GatewayARN => Str, [AverageDownloadRateLimitInBitsPerSec => Int, AverageUploadRateLimitInBitsPerSec => Int])

Each argument is described in detail in: Paws::StorageGateway::UpdateBandwidthRateLimit

Returns: a Paws::StorageGateway::UpdateBandwidthRateLimitOutput instance

This operation updates the bandwidth rate limits of a gateway. You can update both the upload and download bandwidth rate limit or specify only one of the two. If you don’t set a bandwidth rate limit, the existing rate limit remains.

By default, a gateway’s bandwidth rate limits are not set. If you don’t set any limit, the gateway does not have any limitations on its bandwidth usage and could potentially use the maximum available bandwidth.

To specify which gateway to update, use the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the gateway in your request.

    UpdateChapCredentials(InitiatorName => Str, SecretToAuthenticateInitiator => Str, TargetARN => Str, [SecretToAuthenticateTarget => Str])

Each argument is described in detail in: Paws::StorageGateway::UpdateChapCredentials

Returns: a Paws::StorageGateway::UpdateChapCredentialsOutput instance

This operation updates the Challenge-Handshake Authentication Protocol (CHAP) credentials for a specified iSCSI target. By default, a gateway does not have CHAP enabled; however, for added security, you might use it.

When you update CHAP credentials, all existing connections on the target are closed and initiators must reconnect with the new credentials.

    UpdateGatewayInformation(GatewayARN => Str, [GatewayName => Str, GatewayTimezone => Str])

Each argument is described in detail in: Paws::StorageGateway::UpdateGatewayInformation

Returns: a Paws::StorageGateway::UpdateGatewayInformationOutput instance

This operation updates a gateway’s metadata, which includes the gateway’s name and time zone. To specify which gateway to update, use the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the gateway in your request.

    UpdateGatewaySoftwareNow(GatewayARN => Str)

Each argument is described in detail in: Paws::StorageGateway::UpdateGatewaySoftwareNow

Returns: a Paws::StorageGateway::UpdateGatewaySoftwareNowOutput instance

This operation updates the gateway virtual machine (VM) software. The request immediately triggers the software update.

When you make this request, you get a 200 OK success response immediately. However, it might take some time for the update to complete. You can call DescribeGatewayInformation to verify the gateway is in the STATE_RUNNING state. A software update forces a system restart of your gateway. You can minimize the chance of any disruption to your applications by increasing your iSCSI Initiators’ timeouts. For more information about increasing iSCSI Initiator timeouts for Windows and Linux, see Customizing Your Windows iSCSI Settings and Customizing Your Linux iSCSI Settings, respectively.

    UpdateMaintenanceStartTime(DayOfWeek => Int, GatewayARN => Str, HourOfDay => Int, MinuteOfHour => Int)

Each argument is described in detail in: Paws::StorageGateway::UpdateMaintenanceStartTime

Returns: a Paws::StorageGateway::UpdateMaintenanceStartTimeOutput instance
