Load Balancers: Balancing your instances

On the "Load Balancers" page, you will see a list of all your load balancers, with information such as the name, datacenter region, number of instances associated with the load balancer, used protocols (TCP or TCP Proxy), and algorithms (Round Robin or Least Connection).

You can also delete or edit a load balancer by clicking on the "More" button next to it.

Editing a Load Balancer

When you click on the "More" button next to a load balancer, you can edit the load balancer and add or remove instances from it. In the edit view, you can create new rules, where you can specify the Rule name, Protocol, Algorithm, Public Port, and Private Port.

Please note that you cannot change the region or IP of the load balancer in the edit mode, this can only be done by creating a new load balancer.

Creating a New Load Balancer

To create a new load balancer, click on the "Create Load Balancer" button on the main Load Balancers page. In the window that opens, you will be able to select the region where you want the load balancer to be created. Only the regions where you have a VPC created will be available. After selecting the region, you will need to choose a load balancer IP address. You will see the extra IPs that are not in use, and you can add an extra IP if none are available.

The next step is to add the rules and select the instances that you want behind the load balancer. Only the instances that are part of the same VPC network where the load balancer is created can be added.

Finally, provide a name for the load balancer and hit the "Create Load Balancer" button.
