Application Load Balancer (ALB) now supports Resource Map, a tool in the console that displays all your ALB resources and their relationships in a visual format on a single page, providing you a clear understanding of your ALB architecture.

ALB’s resource map shows relationships between your load balancer’s listeners, rules, target groups, and targets. The feature highlights relationships and routing paths between resources and provides useful additional details like rule conditions, target group health overview, and health status for individual targets. The simplified user interface makes it easier to identify any undesirable configurations, facilitates appropriate edits, and provides a visual representation of the configuration changes on your load balancer. Resource maps also have a filtered view called “Unhealthy target map”, which shows all unhealthy targets and the resources associated with them to simplify troubleshooting.

This feature is available in all commercial AWS Regions, AWS GovCloud (US) Regions and China Regions. To learn more about ALB Resource Map, visit our documentation.
