modify-target-group

Description

Modifies the health checks used when evaluating the health state of the targets in the specified target group.

To monitor the health of the targets, use DescribeTargetHealth .

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  modify-target-group
--target-group-arn <value>
[--health-check-protocol <value>]
[--health-check-port <value>]
[--health-check-path <value>]
[--health-check-enabled | --no-health-check-enabled]
[--health-check-interval-seconds <value>]
[--health-check-timeout-seconds <value>]
[--healthy-threshold-count <value>]
[--unhealthy-threshold-count <value>]
[--matcher <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--target-group-arn (string)

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

--health-check-protocol (string)

The protocol the load balancer uses when performing health checks on targets. The TCP protocol is supported only if the protocol of the target group is TCP.

If the protocol of the target group is TCP, you can't modify this setting.

Possible values:

  • HTTP
  • HTTPS
  • TCP

--health-check-port (string)

The port the load balancer uses when performing health checks on targets.

--health-check-path (string)

[HTTP/HTTPS health checks] The ping path that is the destination for the health check request.

--health-check-enabled | --no-health-check-enabled (boolean)

Indicates whether health checks are enabled.

--health-check-interval-seconds (integer)

The approximate amount of time, in seconds, between health checks of an individual target. For Application Load Balancers, the range is 5–300 seconds. For Network Load Balancers, the supported values are 10 or 30 seconds.

If the protocol of the target group is TCP, you can't modify this setting.

--health-check-timeout-seconds (integer)

[HTTP/HTTPS health checks] The amount of time, in seconds, during which no response means a failed health check.

If the protocol of the target group is TCP, you can't modify this setting.

--healthy-threshold-count (integer)

The number of consecutive health checks successes required before considering an unhealthy target healthy.

--unhealthy-threshold-count (integer)

The number of consecutive health check failures required before considering the target unhealthy. For Network Load Balancers, this value must be the same as the healthy threshold count.

--matcher (structure)

[HTTP/HTTPS health checks] The HTTP codes to use when checking for a successful response from a target.

If the protocol of the target group is TCP, you can't modify this setting.

Shorthand Syntax:

HttpCode=string

JSON Syntax:

{
  "HttpCode": "string"
}

--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.

--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 modify the health check configuration for a target group

This example changes the configuration of the health checks used to evaluate the health of the targets for the specified target group.

Command:

aws elbv2 modify-target-group --target-group-arn arn:aws:elasticloadbalancing:us-west-2:123456789012:targetgroup/my-https-targets/2453ed029918f21f --health-check-protocol HTTPS --health-check-port 443

Output:

{
  "TargetGroups": [
      {
          "HealthCheckIntervalSeconds": 30,
          "VpcId": "vpc-3ac0fb5f",
          "Protocol": "HTTPS",
          "HealthCheckTimeoutSeconds": 5,
          "HealthCheckProtocol": "HTTPS",
          "LoadBalancerArns": [
              "arn:aws:elasticloadbalancing:us-west-2:123456789012:loadbalancer/app/my-load-balancer/50dc6c495c0c9188"
          ],
          "UnhealthyThresholdCount": 2,
          "HealthyThresholdCount": 5,
          "TargetGroupArn": "arn:aws:elasticloadbalancing:us-west-2:123456789012:targetgroup/my-https-targets/2453ed029918f21f",
          "Matcher": {
              "HttpCode": "200"
          },
          "HealthCheckPort": "443",
          "Port": 443,
          "TargetGroupName": "my-https-targets"
      }
  ]
}

Output

TargetGroups -> (list)

Information about the modified target group.

(structure)

Information about a target group.

TargetGroupArn -> (string)

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

TargetGroupName -> (string)

The name of the target group.

Protocol -> (string)

The protocol to use for routing traffic to the targets.

Port -> (integer)

The port on which the targets are listening.

VpcId -> (string)

The ID of the VPC for the targets.

HealthCheckProtocol -> (string)

The protocol to use to connect with the target.

HealthCheckPort -> (string)

The port to use to connect with the target.

HealthCheckEnabled -> (boolean)

Indicates whether health checks are enabled.

HealthCheckIntervalSeconds -> (integer)

The approximate amount of time, in seconds, between health checks of an individual target.

HealthCheckTimeoutSeconds -> (integer)

The amount of time, in seconds, during which no response means a failed health check.

HealthyThresholdCount -> (integer)

For Application Load Balancers, you can specify values between 200 and 499, and the default value is 200. You can specify multiple values (for example, "200,202") or a range of values (for example, "200-299").

For Network Load Balancers, this is 200–399.

LoadBalancerArns -> (list)

The Amazon Resource Names (ARN) of the load balancers that route traffic to this target group.

(string)

TargetType -> (string)

The type of target that you must specify when registering targets with this target group. The possible values are instance (targets are specified by instance ID) or ip (targets are specified by IP address).
