    Load Balancer logs are now available in Cockpit

    Load Balancer now generates logs when the state of backend servers changes, or when your frontend TLS certificates expire. These logs are sent to your Scaleway Cockpit and you can browse them via the dedicated LB Logs Overview dashboard. They provide information not only on the changes in state of backend servers, but also the reasons for these changes. With these logs, you will be equipped to properly troubleshoot backend server issues.

    Read more about Load Balancer logs in our documentation.

    Private Load Balancers are now available!

    When creating a Load Balancer you can now choose whether you want it to be public (connected to the internet with a public IP address) or private (fully isolated from the internet and with no public IP address). Private Load Balancers let you balance internal traffic or make your internal services highly available without being exposed to the internet. Make sure you attach your private Load Balancer to a Private Network so your internal clients can access it. Read more about private Load Balancers in our documentation.
