Ensure that your AWS Auto Scaling Groups (ASGs) are referencing active Elastic Load Balancers (ELBs) in order to maintain the auto-scaling process healthy and the application load evenly distributed
This rule resolution is part of the Cloud Conformity Security & Compliance tool for AWS
When your Auto Scaling Groups fail to launch new backend instances due to inactive (deleted) Elastic Load Balancers, the ASG scaling mechanism is unable to add compute power (instances) in order to handle the increased load and this will cause a serious negative impact on your application performance.
To identify any AWS ASGs that are missing load balancing capabilities due to inactive ELBs, perform the following actions:
To update any Amazon ASGs that are missing load balancing capabilities due to inactive ELBs, perform the following:
