In this hands-on lab, you will learn to create an Application Load Balancer from the command line interface. It only takes five commands, offers some speed advantages, and can ultimately be scripted. From the CLI, you can create and configure the ALB, target groups, targets, listeners, and health checks. There is a specific sequence for creating the Application Load Balancer, meaning fewer configuration issues get introduced. This hands-on lab offers the opportunity to perform some realistic troubleshooting on the ALB.
