Target Groups

  • To load balance between servers, you need to group servers
  • Target groups organize traffic to a service on a specific port
  • Defines a health check to determine if a server is healthy
  • "Healthy" might mean "finished starting up" or "not crashed"
  • Traffic is only routed to healthy servers
  • Why do we need another group? Isn't the Autoscaling group enough?
