Adding an Endpoint Group

Scenario

A listener needs to have at least one endpoint group where it can route traffic to.

Prerequisites

A global accelerator has been created, and a listener has been added to it.

Procedure

  1. Log in to the management console.
  2. On the homepage, click in the upper left corner and choose Networking > Global Accelerator.

    The Global Accelerator page is displayed.

  3. Search for the global accelerator by name or ID.
  4. Click the name of the global accelerator to go to the details page.
  5. Click Listeners.
  6. On the right of the page, click Endpoint Groups.
  7. Click Add Endpoint Group.
  8. Specify the parameters listed in Table 1.
    Table 1 Parameters required for adding an endpoint group

    Parameter

    Description

    Name

    Name of the endpoint group.

    Each listener can be associated with only one endpoint group in a given region.

    You can enter up to 64 characters. Only letters, digits, and hyphens are allowed.

    Region

    Region to which the endpoint group belongs.

    Description

    Supplementary information about the endpoint group.

    You can enter up to 255 characters.

    Traffic Dial

    The percentage of traffic directed to the endpoint group.

    If you increase the traffic dial, more requests will be distributed to this endpoint group.

    If you set the traffic dial to 0, no requests will be distributed to this endpoint group.

    The weight ranges from 0 to 100.

    NOTE:

    If a listener has multiple endpoint groups, traffic will be first distributed to the endpoint group with the lowest latency and then to other endpoint groups based on the traffic dial value you set.

    Health Check

    Health Check

    Whether to enable health check.

    If you disable health check, requests may be forwarded to unhealthy endpoints.

    Protocol

    Currently, only TCP can be used for health check.

    Port

    The port used for health check.

    The port number ranges from 1 to 65535.

    Interval (s)

    The maximum time between two consecutive health checks, in seconds.

    The interval ranges from 1 to 60.

    Timeout (s)

    The maximum time required for waiting for a response to a health check request, in seconds.

    The timeout ranges from 1 to 60.

    Maximum Retries

    The maximum number of health check retries allowed.

    The value ranges from 1 to 10.
