Overview of Euca2ools

Euca2ools is the Eucalyptus command line interface for interacting with web services. This set of tools was written in Python, relying on the Boto library and M2Crypto toolkit.
Most Euca2ools commands are compatible with Amazon’s EC2, S3, and IAM services and generally accept the same options and honor the same environmental variables. This means that you can use Euca2ools with both the Eucalyptus cloud-computing platform and Amazon EC2, S3, and IAM. A few other commands are specific to Eucalyptus and are noted in the command description.
Some operations in Euca2ools are not supported in certain Eucalyptus networking modes. For example, security groups and elastic IPs are not supported in both Static and System networking modes. See your cloud administrator for details. For more information about networking modes, see the Installation Guide.
