Load Balancers in Spinnaker
What is a load balancer?
A load balancer is associated with an ingress protocol and port range. It balances traffic among instances in its server groups. Optionally, you can enable health checks for a load balancer, with flexibility to define health criteria and specify the health check endpoint.
- Before you create a load balancer, your Security Group will already need to exist.
Create a load balancer
Step 1: After you select your Application, click on the Load Balancers tab.
Step 2: Click the “Create Load Balancer” button.
Step 3: The Stack and Detail should be kept in mind when creating the pipeline because the pipeline’s deployment of server group should be using the same Stack and Detail.
Delete a load balancer
Note: You can only delete Load Balancers if they do not have any instances attached to them.
Step 1: Go to your Load Balancers in your Applications.
Step 2: Select a Load Balancer, then to the right a column with the Load Balancer’s details should appear. Select the drop down menu and press “Delete”.
