       VM::EC2::Volume - Object describing an Amazon EBS volume

         $ec2       = VM::EC2->new(...);

       This object is used to describe an Amazon EBS volume. It is returned by


       The following object methods are supported:

        volumeId         -- ID of this volume.
        size             -- Size of this volume (in GB).
        snapshotId       -- ID of snapshot this volume was created from.
        availabilityZone -- Availability zone in which this volume resides.
        status           -- Volume state, one of "creating", "available",
                            "in-use", "deleting", "deleted", "error"
        createTime       -- Timestamp for when volume was created.
        volumeType       -- The volume type, one of "standard" or "io1"
        iops             -- The number of I/O operations per second that the volume
                            supports, an integer between 100 and 4000. Only valid for
                            volumes of type "io1".
        tags             -- Hashref containing tags associated with this group.
                            See L<VM::EC2::Generic>.

       In addition, this class provides several convenience functions:

   $attachment  = $vol->attachment
   @attachments = $vol->attachments
       The attachment() method returns a VM::EC2::BlockDevice::Attachment
       object describing the attachment of this volume to an instance. If the
       volume is unused, then this returns undef.

       The attachments() method is similar, except that it returns a list of
       the attachments.  Currently an EBS volume can only be attached to one
       instance at a time, but the Amazon call syntax supports multiple
       attachments and this method is provided for future compatibility.

   $attachment = $vol->attach($instance,$device)
   $attachment = $vol->attach(-instance_id=>$instance,-device=>$device)
       Attach this volume to an instance using virtual device $device. Both
       arguments are required. The result is a
       VM::EC2::BlockDevice::Attachment object which you can monitor by
       calling current_status():

           my $a = $volume->attach('i-12345','/dev/sdg');
           while ($a->current_status ne 'attached') {
              sleep 2;
           print "volume is ready to go

   $attachment = $volume->detach()
   $attachment = $volume->detach(-instance_id=>$instance_id, -device=>$device,
       Detaches this volume. With no arguments, will detach the volume from
       whatever instance it is currently attached to. Provide -instance_id
       and/or -device as a check that you are detaching the volume from the
       expected instance and device.

       Optional arguments:

        -instance_id    -- ID of the instance to detach from.
        -device         -- How the device is exposed to the instance.
        -force          -- Force detachment, even if previous attempts were

       The result is a VM::EC2::BlockDevice::Attachment object which you can
       monitor by calling current_status():

           my $a = $volume->detach;
           while ($a->current_status ne 'detached') {
              sleep 2;
           print "volume is ready to go

   $boolean = $vol->deleteOnTermination([$boolean])
       Get or set the deleteOnTermination flag for attached volumes. If the
       volume is unattached, then this causes a fatal error. Called with no
       arguments, this method returns the current state of the
       deleteOnTermination flag for the volume's attachment. Called with a
       true/false argument, the method sets the flag by calling
       modify_instance_attributes() on the corresponding instance and returns
       true if successful.

   $snap = $vol->from_snapshot
       Returns the VM::EC2::Snapshot object that this volume was originally
       derived from. It will return undef if the resource no longer exists, or
       if the volume was created from scratch.

   @snap = $vol->to_snapshots
       If this volume has been used to create one or more snapshots, this
       method will return them as a list of VM::EC2::Snapshot objects.

   $snapshot = $vol->create_snapshot('Description')
       Create a snapshot of the volume and return a VM::EC2::Snapshot object.
       To ensure a consistent snapshot, you should unmount the volume before
       snapshotting it. The optional argument allows you to add a description
       to the snapshot.

       Here is an example:

         $s = $volume->create_snapshot("Backed up at ".localtime);
         while ($s->current_status eq 'pending') {
            print "Progress: ",$s->progress,"% done
         print "Snapshot status: ",$s->current_status,"

   $status = $vol->current_status
       This returns the up-to-date status of the volume. It works by calling
       refresh() and then returning status().

   $boolean = $vol->auto_enable_io([$new_boolean])
       Get or set the auto-enable IO flag.

   $boolean = $vol->enable_volume_io()
       Enable volume I/O after it has been disabled by an Amazon health check.
       If successful, the call will return true.


       When used in a string context, this object will interpolate the
