This page provides examples and descriptions for each of the AWS Observability Application Load Balancer pre-configured dashboards.

The AWS Application Load Balancer serves as the single point of contact for clients. The load balancer distributes incoming application traffic across multiple targets, such as EC2 instances, in multiple Availability Zones. 

The Sumo Logic AWS Observability Application Load Balancer Dashboards provides visibility into the health of Application Load Balancer and target groups in your AWS environment. Use the pre-configured dashboards to understand the load, errors, response codes, and latency by target groups, hosts as well as requests from malicious sources, and HTTP response codes.

AWS Application Load Balancer - Overview

The AWS Application Load Balancer - Overview dashboard provides visibility into the health of your Application Load Balancer and target groups, with at-a-glance views of latency, request and host status, requests from malicious sources, and HTTP backend codes.

Use this dashboard to:

  • Monitor requests to each load balancer to ensure the load is being distributed as desired.
  • Quickly identify healthy and unhealthy hosts.
  • Monitor trends for load balancers errors, 4xx, and 5xx errors, as well as healthy and unhealthy hosts.
  • Monitor the current state across all load balancers via active connections, new connections, target connection errors, and rejected connections.

1. AWS Application Load Balancer - Response  Analysis

The AWS Application Load Balancer - Response Analysis dashboard provides insights into how your load balancers are responding to clients. 

Use this dashboard to:

  • Monitor incoming client locations for all 5XX, 4XX and 3XX error responses.
  • Quickly correlate error responses using load balancer access logs and AWS CloudWatch metrics to determine the possible cause for failures and decide corrective actions.

2. AWS Application Load Balancer - Target Group Response Analysis

The AWS Application Load Balancer - Target Group Response Analysis dashboard provides insights into how various target groups are responding to client requests.

Use this dashboard to:

  • Monitor trends of all response codes for your target groups by LoadBalancer, Target Group, and availability zones.
  • Correlate response code trends across load balancer access logs and CloudWatch metrics to determine the root cause for failures.

3. AWS Application Load Balancer - Latency Overview

The AWS Application Load Balancer - Latency Overview dashboard provides insights into response times for load balancers, target groups, and availability zones, including backend log response times.

Use this dashboard to:

  • Monitor response times by load balancer, target group, and availability zone.
  • Monitor client latency and processing times for target groups.

4. AWS Application Load Balancer - Latency Details

The AWS Application Load Balancer - Latency Details dashboard provides insights into client latency by domain and ELB server, as well as processing times by ELB server and target groups throughout your infrastructure.

Use this dashboard to:

  • Troubleshoot load balancer performance via detailed views across client, request processing, and response time latencies.

The AWS Application Load Balancer - Connection and Host Status dashboard provides insights into active and rejected connections, target connection errors, and healthy and unhealthy hosts. 

Use this dashboard to:

  • Monitor active connections, new connections, rejected connections, and connection errors for the load balancer.
  • Monitor healthy and unhealthy host counts by the load balancer, target group, and availability zone across your infrastructure.

6. AWS Application Load Balancer - Requests and Processed Bytes

The AWS Application Load Balancer - Requests and Processed Bytes dashboard provides insights into client requests, network traffic, and processed data.

Use this dashboard to:

  • Monitor client request load, network traffic, and processed bytes to determine how to best configure load balancers for optimal performance.
  • ​​​​​​​Determine how to best allocate backend resources and target groups based on load.

7. AWS Application Load Balancer - Threat Intel

The AWS Application Load Balancer - Threat Intel dashboard provides insights into incoming requests from malicious sources determined via Sumo Logic’s Threat Intel feature. Panels show detailed information on malicious IPs and the malicious confidence of each threat. 

Use this dashboard to:

  • Identify known malicious IPs that are access your load-balancers and use firewall access control lists to prevent them from sending you traffic going forward 
  • ​​​​​​​Monitor the malicious confidence level for all incoming malicious IP addresses the threats.
