Built-in dashboards 🔗

  • ELB Instances: Overview of all data from ELB.

To access this integration, connect to CloudWatch.

Uniquely identifying ELBs 🔗

SignalFx synthesizes a unique ID for each ELB in the dimension AWSUniqueId.

ELB metadata 🔗

For ELB, SignalFx will scan every load balancer name from your AWS account and pull out properties of the load balancer and any tags set on the load balancer.
