The Load Balancer service provides automated traffic distribution from one entry point to multiple servers reachable from your virtual cloud network (VCN). The service offers a load balancer with your choice of a public or private IP address, and provisioned bandwidth. A load balancer improves resource utilization, facilitates scaling, and helps ensure high availability.

You can configure multiple load balancing policies and application-specific health checks to ensure that the load balancer directs traffic only to healthy instances. The load balancer can reduce your maintenance window by draining traffic from an unhealthy application server before you remove it from service for maintenance.

Use the Oracle Cloud integration to discover and collect metrics against the OCI Load Balancers.


To set up the Oracle Cloud integration and discover the OCI Load Balancers service, do the following:

  1. Create a Oracle Cloud (OCI) integration if not available in your installed integrations.

  2. You can select OCI Load Balancers during integration or you can edit the existing integration and select OCI Load Balancers.

  3. Scan to discover the resources at any time independent of the predefined schedule.

  4. Once the scan is completed, you can view the OCI Load Balancers resource under Infrastructure > Resources > Oracle Cloud category.

  5. Create a template. See Create a Template for more information on how to create a template.

  6. Refer to Assign a Template on how to assign a template to a resource.

  7. Click the Metrics tab to view the monitoring data of OCI Load Balancers as shown below:
