eulb-create-lb (-s SUBNET1,SUBNET2,... | -z ZONE1,ZONE2,...) -l "lb-port=PORT, protocol={HTTP,HTTPS,SSL,TCP}, instance-port=PORT, instance-protocol={HTTP,HTTPS,SSL,TCP}, cert-id=ARN" [-i internal] [-g GROUP1,GROUP2,...] [--show-empty-fields] [--region USER@REGION | -U URL] [-I KEY_ID] [-S KEY] [--debug] [--debugger] [--version] [-h] ELB  


Create a load balancer  


After the load balancer is created, instances must be registered with it separately.  

positional arguments:

name of the new load balancer (required)

optional arguments:

-s SUBNET1,SUBNET2,..., --subnets SUBNET1,SUBNET2,...
[VPC only] subnets the load balancer should run in (required)
-z ZONE1,ZONE2,..., --availability-zones ZONE1,ZONE2,...
[Non-VPC only] availability zones the load balancer should run in (required)
-l "lb-port=PORT, protocol={HTTP,HTTPS,SSL,TCP}, instance-port=PORT, instance-protocol={HTTP,HTTPS,SSL,TCP}, cert-id=ARN", --listener "lb-port=PORT, protocol={HTTP,HTTPS,SSL,TCP}, instance-port=PORT, instance-protocol={HTTP,HTTPS,SSL,TCP}, cert-id=ARN"
port/protocol settings for the load balancer, where lb-port is the external port number, protocol is the external protocol, instance-port is the back end server port number, instance-protocol is the protocol to use for routing traffic to back end instances, and cert-id is the ARN of the server certificate to use for encrypted connections. lb-port, protocol, and instance-port are required. This option may be used multiple times. (at least 1 required)
-i internal, --scheme internal
[VPC only] "internal" to make the new load balancer private to a VPC
-g GROUP1,GROUP2,..., --security-groups GROUP1,GROUP2,...
[VPC only] IDs of the security groups to assign to the new load balancer
show empty values as "(nil)"
--region USER@REGION
name of the region and/or user in config files to use to connect to the service
-U URL, --url URL
load balancing service endpoint URL
-I KEY_ID, --access-key-id KEY_ID
-S KEY, --secret-key KEY
show debugging output
launch interactive debugger on error
show the program's version and exit
-h, --help
