Hi, I am invoking aws cli in the bash. Say aws sqs create-queue. Or receive-message. Since ultimately those are http calls - do I have to handle retry, in case the network is flaky? Or the boto3 code already handled retry? Can't seem to find the code in boto3...

Yes, we have retries with exponential back off.
