Use the aws_elasticache_cluster_node InSpec audit resource to test the properties of a single AWS ElastiCache cluster node.

Syntax

An aws_elasticache_cluster_node resource block declares the tests for a single AWS ElastiCache cluster node by cache_cluster_id and node_id.

describe aws_elasticache_cluster_node(cache_cluster_id: 'my-cluster-123', node_id: '0001') do
  it { should exist }
end

Parameters

The ElastiCache cluster ID and node ID must be provided.

cache_cluster_id (required)

The ID of the ElastiCache cluster:

  • contains between 1 and 50 alphanumeric characters or hyphens,
  • should start with a letter,
  • cannot end with a hyphen or contain two consecutive hyphens.

It can be passed either as a string or as a cache_cluster_id: 'value' key-value entry in a hash.

node_id (required)

The ID of the node must be a string containing 4 digits. It can be passed as a node_id: 'value' key-value entry in a hash.

Properties

create_time The date and time when the cache node was created.

There are also additional properties available. For a comprehensive list, see the API reference documentation.

Examples

Test that an ElastiCache cluster node is available

describe aws_elasticache_cluster_node(cache_cluster_id: "my-cluster-123", node_id: "0001") do
    its("status") { should eq 'available' }
end

Test that an Elasticache cluster engine is listening on port 11211

describe aws_elasticache_cluster_node(cache_cluster_id: "my-cluster-123", node_id: "0001") do
    its("port") { should cmp 11211 }
end

Test that an Elasticache cluster node’s customer availability zone is us-east-2b

describe aws_elasticache_cluster_node(cache_cluster_id: "my-cluster-123", node_id: "0001") do
    its("customer_availability_zone") { should cmp "us-east-2b" }
end
