Monitor AWS Elastic Load Balancer

AWS ELB Monitoring

Elastic Load Balancing (ELB) is a load-balancing service from Amazon Web Services (AWS). AWS ELB automatically distributes incoming application traffic across multiple targets, such as EC2 instances, and scales resources to meet traffic demands.  Elastic Load Balancing helps IT teams adjust capacity according to incoming application and network traffic.

AWS ELB supports three types of load balancers: Application Load Balancers, Network Load Balancers, and Classic Load Balancers.

  • The Application Load Balancer handles advanced traffic routing from other services or containers at the application level.
  • The Network Load Balancer is ideal for load balancing of TCP traffic and capable of handling millions of requests per second while maintaining low latencies.
  • The Classic Load Balancer distributes incoming application traffic across multiple EC2 instances in multiple Availability Zones.

This page discusses how Applications Manager's AWS ELB monitoring tool gives you the ability to monitor AWS Elastic Load Balancers, analyze traffic patterns and troubleshoot issues with your load balancers and targets for optimized performance.

Gather real-time performance data with Applictions Manager's AWS ELB monitoring tool.

Get basic data about the number of healthy hosts, latency, requests, error rates and more. These metrics can be plotted on dashboards, and you can create basic threshold-type alerts. Handle Traffic routing for specific situations and IP addresses when multiple connections are opened in order to handle increased requests as needed. Get instant notifications of performance issues and bottlenecks so you can take quick remedial action before your end-users experience issues.

Analyze connection count statistics

Monitor AWS ELB performance by keeping an eye on the number of rejected connections to follow your Load Balancer’s ability to properly connect to a target and route a request.  Measure the number of rules and bytes processed by the Application ELB. Applications Manager's Elastic Load Balancer monitoring tool enables you to gain insight into several performance stats like the number of concurrent (active and new) connections between clients and load balancer and, between the load balancer and targets.

Track healthy and unhealthy host count

Use Applications Manager's ELB monitoring tool to monitor the number of healthy targets registered with the Application Elastic Load Balancer. Maintain a Healthy Host Count by tracking healthy instances. A reduced number of registered healthy hosts can increase latency, so set up alerts to make sure you have enough healthy instances to service incoming requests.

Troubleshoot and monitor target HTTP error response codes

Gather statistics on the number of Client and Server errors generated by the load balancer. Measure the number of TLS connections that could not successfully establish a session between your load balancer and its registered instances. Identify potential causes for the error and set up alerts to let you know when your back-end servers are generating these errors. Review your application logs for the corresponding time to troubleshoot the problem.

Get an aggregate of HTTP 4XX and 5XX error codes generated by the targets in your group. Fix back-end connection errors and drill down to identify whether if an instance or an availability zone is the source of the issue.
