AWS Elastic Load Balancer (ELB) logs

The AWS Elastic Load Balancer (ELB) Matano managed log source lets you ingest your AWS ELB access logs directly into Matano.

ELB access logs provide detailed information about requests sent to your load balancer. The AWS ELB managed log source supports Classic Load Balancer, Application Load Balancer, and Network Load Balancer logs.


Use the managed log source by specifying the managed.type property in your log_source as AWS_ELB.

name: "aws_elb"

type: "AWS_ELB"


The AWS ELB managed log source supports a single table containing ELB access logs.



AWS ELB logs must be enabled on your load balancer and are always delivered to S3 buckets. For more on configuring a load balancer to deliver access logs, see the relevant AWS documentation:

You can provide the S3 bucket you are using for delivery to Matano by using the ingest.s3_source configuration in your log_source.yml (Bring your own bucket).


AWS ELB log data is normalized to ECS fields. Custom fields are normalized into the aws.elb field. You can view the complete mapping to see the full schema.
