Load balancers

The primary load-balancing configuration object. Specifies the virtual IP address where client traffic is received.


A logical set of devices, such as web servers, that you group together to receive and process traffic.

The load-balancing algorithm chooses which member of the pool handles new requests or connections that are received on a listener. Each listener has one default pool.


Represents a single listening port. Defines the protocol and can optionally provide TLS termination.
