Applies to: AWS Log Forwarder v1.0.10 and above
Elastic Load Balancing distributes incoming traffic across multiple targets, such as Amazon EC2 instances, containers, and IP addresses automatically, in one or more AWS Availability Zones. It monitors the health of its registered targets, and routes traffic only to the healthy targets, and scales the load balancers as per incoming traffic.
Netsurion monitors events from Amazon Elastic Load Balancing (ELB) by parsing the AWS CloudTrail logs for it. Dashboards and reports in Netsurion’s threat protection platform, EventTracker, will help track the overall actions performed related to the ELB service so that you are informed about its activities. It will trigger alerts whenever an action critical to the application is carried out.
For a new instance, integrate the AWS instance to EventTracker using the EventTracker integrator AWS Lambda function, which will in turn deliver logs to EventTracker from Amazon Web Services.
Once configured to deliver events to EventTracker Manager, the alerts, dashboards, and reports can be configured into EventTracker.
For an already-integrated AWS instance, make sure to update to ETS-AWS-LogForwarder v1.0.10 or above.
The configuration details are consistent with EventTracker version 9.3X and later, and ETS-AWS-LogForwarder v1.0.10 and above.
To configure Amazon Elastic Load Balancing to send logs to EventTracker, refer to the How-to Guide.
