How does AWS load balancer work?

Asked 2 years ago

I have a very basic understanding of what a load balancer is and how they are mandatory for distribution systems and tracking of various resources during distribution requests. I am mainly interested in knowing how the AWS Elastic Load Balancer works and the advantages it provides.

An AWS load balancer accepts the requests from the clients and directs them to verified targets within available zones. It also ensures that the incoming traffic should only hit the healthy registered targets by monitoring their health status. If the AWS load balancer detects an unhealthy target, it stops its incoming traffic till the restoration of a healthy level. The load balancer can also specify your incoming traffic from 1 or more listeners.
