Instance Console Screenshot provides an on-demand screenshot of the instance console, conveying valuable debug information. This capability is particularly useful when diagnosing instances that have become unreachable via RDP (Windows) or SSH (Linux) due to in-progress software updates, VM Import issues, or other blocking system events. Screenshots can be viewed in the AWS console or accessed via the AWS API or CLI, with both Linux and Windows instances supported.

Instance Console Screenshot is available now in the US West (N. California), US West (Oregon), US East (N. Virginia), EU (Ireland), EU (Frankfurt), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), Asia Pacific (Seoul), Asia Pacific (Singapore), Asia Pacific (Sydney), and South America (São Paulo) regions.
