This section covers how to work with Load Balancers in the Eucalyptus Management
Create Load Balancer - General
This wizard allows you to create a new load balancer. A load balancer allows you to automatically balance incoming traffic among a predefined group of instances, ensuring that requests are sent to an instance that has the capacity to serve them. For more information on load balancers, see Using Elastic Load Balancing in the Eucalyptus User Guide.
Create Load Balancer - Instances
This step allows you to associate availability zones (or VPC subnets, if cloud is VPC) and add instances to your new load balancer. Adding availability zones allows the load balancer to route traffic to instances in the selected zone(s). Similarly, if on a VPC network, adding a VPC subnet allows traffic to instances in the selected VPC subnet(s).
Create Load Balancer - Health Check & Advanced
This wizard allows you to specify the various health checks you want your load balancer to monitor. Any instances that fail the health check will be automatically removed from the load balancer.
Load Balancer Details - Monitoring
This tab provides a graphical view of various data points being monitored for your load balancer. This tab opens as the default view when launched from the load balancers landing page.
Load Balancer Details - Health check
This page allows you to view and edit various health checks associated with monitoring a load balancer. Any instances that fail the health check will be automatically removed from the load balancer.
