ChaosIQ experiments are run through Chaos Toolkit. When targeting AWS systems for your experiments, the Chaos Toolkit AWS extension offers a large set of activities for AWS services. This page lists all activities specific to Amazon Elastic Load Balancer (elbv2).

Amazon elbv2 distributes traffic across targets, such as EC2 instances.


  • Delete one or multiple load balancers,
  • Deregister a random target,
  • Change security groups,
  • Change the subnets for specified load balancers.


  • Check if selected targets are healthy,
