Elastic Load Balancing

A load balancer can distribute incoming traffic across your EC2 instances.

This enables you to increase the availability of your application. The load balancer also monitors the health of its registered instances and ensures that it routes traffic only to healthy instances. You configure your load balancer to accept incoming traffic by specifying one or more listeners, which are configured with a protocol and port number for connections from clients to the load balancer and a protocol and port number for connections from the load balancer to the instances.

Elastic Load Balancing supports three types of load balancers: Application Load Balancers, Network Load Balancers, and Classic Load Balancers. You can select a load balancer based on your application needs. For more information, see the Elastic Load Balancing User Guide.

This reference covers the 2012-06-01 API, which supports Classic Load Balancers. The 2015-12-01 API supports Application Load Balancers and Network Load Balancers.

To get started, create a load balancer with one or more listeners using CreateLoadBalancer. Register your instances with the load balancer using RegisterInstancesWithLoadBalancer.

All Elastic Load Balancing operations are idempotent, which means that they complete at most one time. If you repeat an operation, it succeeds with a 200 OK response code.

If you specify a load balancer name, the action returns the descriptions of all policies created for the load balancer. If you specify a policy name associated with your load balancer, the action returns the description of that policy. If you don't specify a load balancer name, the action returns descriptions of the specified sample policies, or descriptions of all sample policies. The names of the sample policies have the ELBSample- prefix.

Link to this function

describe_load_balancer_policy_types(client, input, options \\ [])

View Source

Describes the specified load balancer policy types or all load balancer policy types.

The description of each type indicates how it can be used. For example, some policies can be used only with layer 7 listeners, some policies can be used only with layer 4 listeners, and some policies can be used only with your EC2 instances.

You can use CreateLoadBalancerPolicy to create a policy configuration for any of these policy types. Then, depending on the policy type, use either SetLoadBalancerPoliciesOfListener or SetLoadBalancerPoliciesForBackendServer to set the policy.

Link to this function

describe_load_balancers(client, input, options \\ [])

View Source

Describes the specified the load balancers.

If no load balancers are specified, the call describes all of your load balancers.

Link to this function

describe_tags(client, input, options \\ [])

View Source

Describes the tags associated with the specified load balancers.

Link to this function

detach_load_balancer_from_subnets(client, input, options \\ [])

View Source

Removes the specified subnets from the set of configured subnets for the load balancer.

After a subnet is removed, all EC2 instances registered with the load balancer in the removed subnet go into the OutOfService state. Then, the load balancer balances the traffic among the remaining routable subnets.

Link to this function

disable_availability_zones_for_load_balancer(client, input, options \\ [])

View Source

Removes the specified Availability Zones from the set of Availability Zones for the specified load balancer in EC2-Classic or a default VPC.

For load balancers in a non-default VPC, use DetachLoadBalancerFromSubnets.

There must be at least one Availability Zone registered with a load balancer at all times. After an Availability Zone is removed, all instances registered with the load balancer that are in the removed Availability Zone go into the OutOfService state. Then, the load balancer attempts to equally balance the traffic among its remaining Availability Zones.

For more information, see Add or Remove Availability Zones in the Classic Load Balancers Guide.

Link to this function

enable_availability_zones_for_load_balancer(client, input, options \\ [])

View Source

Adds the specified Availability Zones to the set of Availability Zones for the specified load balancer in EC2-Classic or a default VPC.

For load balancers in a non-default VPC, use AttachLoadBalancerToSubnets.

The load balancer evenly distributes requests across all its registered Availability Zones that contain instances. For more information, see Add or Remove Availability Zones in the Classic Load Balancers Guide.

Link to this function

modify_load_balancer_attributes(client, input, options \\ [])

View Source

Modifies the attributes of the specified load balancer.

You can modify the load balancer attributes, such as AccessLogs, ConnectionDraining, and CrossZoneLoadBalancing by either enabling or disabling them. Or, you can modify the load balancer attribute ConnectionSettings by specifying an idle connection timeout value for your load balancer.

For more information, see the following in the Classic Load Balancers Guide:

Link to this function

register_instances_with_load_balancer(client, input, options \\ [])

View Source

Adds the specified instances to the specified load balancer.

The instance must be a running instance in the same network as the load balancer (EC2-Classic or the same VPC). If you have EC2-Classic instances and a load balancer in a VPC with ClassicLink enabled, you can link the EC2-Classic instances to that VPC and then register the linked EC2-Classic instances with the load balancer in the VPC.

Note that RegisterInstanceWithLoadBalancer completes when the request has been registered. Instance registration takes a little time to complete. To check the state of the registered instances, use DescribeLoadBalancers or DescribeInstanceHealth.

After the instance is registered, it starts receiving traffic and requests from the load balancer. Any instance that is not in one of the Availability Zones registered for the load balancer is moved to the OutOfService state. If an Availability Zone is added to the load balancer later, any instances registered with the load balancer move to the InService state.

To deregister instances from a load balancer, use DeregisterInstancesFromLoadBalancer.

For more information, see Register or De-Register EC2 Instances in the Classic Load Balancers Guide.

Link to this function

remove_tags(client, input, options \\ [])

View Source

Removes one or more tags from the specified load balancer.

Link to this function

set_load_balancer_listener_ssl_certificate(client, input, options \\ [])

View Source

The specified certificate replaces any prior certificate that was used on the same load balancer and port.

For more information about updating your SSL certificate, see Replace the SSL Certificate for Your Load Balancer in the Classic Load Balancers Guide.

Link to this function

set_load_balancer_policies_for_backend_server(client, input, options \\ [])

View Source

Replaces the set of policies associated with the specified port on which the EC2 instance is listening with a new set of policies.

At this time, only the back-end server authentication policy type can be applied to the instance ports; this policy type is composed of multiple public key policies.

Each time you use SetLoadBalancerPoliciesForBackendServer to enable the policies, use the PolicyNames parameter to list the policies that you want to enable.

You can use DescribeLoadBalancers or DescribeLoadBalancerPolicies to verify that the policy is associated with the EC2 instance.

For more information about enabling back-end instance authentication, see Configure Back-end Instance Authentication in the Classic Load Balancers Guide. For more information about Proxy Protocol, see Configure Proxy Protocol Support in the Classic Load Balancers Guide.

Link to this function

set_load_balancer_policies_of_listener(client, input, options \\ [])

View Source

Replaces the current set of policies for the specified load balancer port with the specified set of policies.

To enable back-end server authentication, use SetLoadBalancerPoliciesForBackendServer.

For more information about setting policies, see Update the SSL Negotiation Configuration, Duration-Based Session Stickiness, and Application-Controlled Session Stickiness in the Classic Load Balancers Guide.
