Today, we are announcing the capability to retrieve latest instance console output throughout the lifecycle of Amazon EC2 instances. 

Previously, instance console outputs were only made available during state transition events – such as start, stop, terminate, and reboot. Now, with the ability to retrieve the latest console output, customers can perform console diagnostics on running instances and design customized workflows around these outputs.

The Latest Console Output feature is available with Amazon EC2 C5 and Amazon EC2 M5 instances in all commercial EC2 regions. For more information on how to get started, visit the Amazon EC2 GetConsoleOutput documentation. To get started with EC2, visit here.
