describe-load-balancer-target-groups

Description

Describes the target groups for the specified Auto Scaling group.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

describe-load-balancer-target-groups is a paginated operation. Multiple API calls may be issued in order to retrieve the entire data set of results. You can disable pagination by providing the --no-paginate argument. When using --output text and the --query argument on a paginated response, the --query argument must extract data from the results of the following query expressions: LoadBalancerTargetGroups

Synopsis

  describe-load-balancer-target-groups
--auto-scaling-group-name <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--starting-token <value>]
[--page-size <value>]
[--max-items <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--auto-scaling-group-name (string)

The name of the Auto Scaling group.

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally.

--starting-token (string)

A token to specify where to start paginating. This is the NextToken from a previously truncated response.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--page-size (integer)

The size of each page to get in the AWS service call. This does not affect the number of items returned in the command's output. Setting a smaller page size results in more calls to the AWS service, retrieving fewer items in each call. This can help prevent the AWS service calls from timing out.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--max-items (integer)

The total number of items to return in the command's output. If the total number of items available is more than the value specified, a NextToken is provided in the command's output. To resume pagination, provide the NextToken value in the starting-token argument of a subsequent command. Do not use the NextToken response element directly outside of the AWS CLI.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Examples

To describe the target groups for an Auto Scaling group

This example describes the target groups attached to the specified Auto Scaling group:

aws autoscaling describe-load-balancer-target-groups --auto-scaling-group-name my-auto-scaling-group

The following is example output:

{
  "LoadBalancerTargetGroups": [
      {
          "LoadBalancerTargetGroupARN": "arn:aws:elasticloadbalancing:us-west-2:123456789012:targetgroup/my-targets/73e2d6bc24d8a067",
          "State": "Added"
      }
  ]
}

Output

LoadBalancerTargetGroups -> (list)

Information about the target groups.

(structure)

Describes the state of a target group.

If you attach a target group to an existing Auto Scaling group, the initial state is Adding . The state transitions to Added after all Auto Scaling instances are registered with the target group. If Elastic Load Balancing health checks are enabled, the state transitions to InService after at least one Auto Scaling instance passes the health check. If EC2 health checks are enabled instead, the target group remains in the Added state.

LoadBalancerTargetGroupARN -> (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the target group.

State -> (string)

The state of the target group.

  • Adding - The Auto Scaling instances are being registered with the target group.
  • Added - All Auto Scaling instances are registered with the target group.
  • InService - At least one Auto Scaling instance passed an ELB health check.
  • Removing - The Auto Scaling instances are being deregistered from the target group. If connection draining is enabled, Elastic Load Balancing waits for in-flight requests to complete before deregistering the instances.
  • Removed - All Auto Scaling instances are deregistered from the target group.

NextToken -> (string)

The token to use when requesting the next set of items. If there are no additional items to return, the string is empty.
