AWS Elastic Load Balancing
Elastic Load Balancing (ELB) automatically distributes incoming application traffic across multiple targets and virtual appliances in one or more Availability Zones (AZs).
Elastic Load Balancing publishes logs to S3. It also publishes metrics to CloudWatch. Using Honeycomb’s AWS integrations, you can send those logs and metrics to Honeycomb.
How it works
Elastic Load Balancing can be configured to store logs in S3. Honeycomb’s AWS integrations use a Lambda function that subscribes to PutObject events on the S3 bucket for those logs. This service sends structured log data to Honeycomb.
Elastic Load Balancing also provides Metric Streams, which forward all metrics captured to third-party destinations. Metrics are streamed to Honeycomb using AWS Kinesis Data Firehose.
This service sends logs to S3, then a Lambda function structures and transports those logs to Honeycomb. It also sends metrics via an AWS CloudWatch Metrics Stream to AWS Kinesis, which uses a Kinesis Data Firehose to send that data to Honeycomb in OTLP format.
