Problem with ELB logs


**Context: **i've created an ELB and have connected to a target group which inturn is connect to an ASG

ASG - Working: I could see that ASG is working fine aka it creates an instance automatically as per the scaling policy.

Target Group - Working: I could also see that the target group is indicating the instance as Healthy

ELB - Not Working: whereas, when I try to hit the ELB's public URL from a browser, I don't see it working, it fails with a timeout error and I've enabled logging for ELB but don't see the logs appearing in S3 buckets (although there's a file created by ELB, which means I've given proper access to it)

I literally don't know how else to track a request from ELB and I'm not seeing the logs generating in my application/instances as well. but, when I try to hit the public URL of my instance, the application does work

any inputs would be helpful!

Have you checked if you security group have all the inbound and outbound rules ? Sometimes the application requires specific rules to guarantee the connection is established successful.

  • the issue was that I was only modifying the security group of my ASG template but had a separate security group for ELB which was not being modified and that was the issue exactly. thank you for your input.
